This Sunday at Mountain View — April 19, 2015

Wow, the weather is fantastic! Nothing feels better than heading out to church in warm Spring weather. Our Worship starts at 11, our Bible school at 10.

We are excited to have Dan lead the worship music this Sunday, along with members of the youth. We have a good group of talented kids who play or sing almost weekly.

If you come at 10 AM, adults are watching the video series, “From Dust to Glory” by R. C. Sproul. This series is an overview of the entire Bible.

There is also a Bible class for younger children, and one for Jr/Sr high. read more
