Art and Music Devotions

Our forty-day Lenten journey comes to an end at the cross. During this journey, we have provided Art and Music Devotions which we have invited you to view.  Here is a PDF document with links to all the videos we've sent out over the past 2 months. It also has a link to a short EASTER video of Paul Manz's setting of "Now the Green Blade Rises." Open the PDF attachment and click on a link to play a specific video. We pray these videos will be an inspiration to you. Many thanks to Tom Kraska, Janet Seiz, and Pastor and Kathy Anderson for their support in producing these Lenten Video Devotions.
