April is almost here, that means summer is just around the bend, right?

Well maybe not summer, but we did have a nice little spring teaser last week.  Unfortunately, one of the Cape Breton realities is that sometimes winter drags on for a little longer...
Anyway, we won't let that keep us down because there are lots of exciting things on the horizon for the first couple weeks of April.

First, we will be doing another week of 24/7 prayer during passion week.  This will be similar to the week we did last year to bring in the new year.  This year we will bring the Easter weekend in full of prayer and focus on Jesus, since that what Easter is really about.

The prayer room will be in the Nursery at Grace this time.
