We are grateful for everyone who came out and served at our UCC Service Day last weekend!


Easter Message by Eric Wilson
This Sunday’s message will be delivered by Eric Wilson. We are excited to celebrate with you and your families this Sunday, and we encourage you to invite your friends to join us on such a special day!

Easter Egg Hunt 
This Sunday, there will be no children’s Bible classes or youth group (John Wilson’s adult class will meet). Instead, please have your children meet in Plaza Classroom 191 with an Easter Basket and two dozen filled eggs (candy or cheerios/goldfish for the younger kids). Please have your teens meet outside of Elkins. The kids will stay in PC 191 for a special Easter lesson while our youth group teens hide the Easter eggs for the hunt!

Help Needed at Harbor
Pepperdine Legacy Partners will continue our tradition of serving dessert and coffee in the evenings at Harbor and could use some help in these two areas: 1) helping prep by cutting & plating desserts from 2-4 PM and 2) help man the event in the evening from 7:30-10:30 PM. Help is only needed on WednesdayMay 1, and FridayMay 3. If you can help or have questions, please contact Beverly Cawyer at beverly.cawyer@pepperdine.edu or 214-991-1568.
