Holy Week at Morning Star will incorporate heartfelt worship to communicate the promise of life in Christ. “Our desire is to both de-mystify what a life of faith looks like while pointing people to the deep, hidden benefits of a relationship with Jesus,” said senior pastor Therman Evans. “One of the missions of our church is to aid in building stronger families and a better community through the Word of God….we welcome everyone. No matter who you are, where you come from, and what your life experience has been, our doors are open to you, your friends and families”, continued Pastor Evans.
The community is invited to attend Morning Star’s many spirit-filled events for men, women, children and the entire family. Additional details can be found on the church’s website at www.morningstarccc.org.
