The Cross boldly stand against the confusion of our world a beacon of hope in the midst of darkness and doubt. In the Cross, Christ not only bridged the gap between God and us, but there we find the answers to life's deepest questions. There we discover our true identity, forgiven sinners who now belong to God. There we discover our true destiny a glorious eternity with God in Heaven. There we discover our true purpose: to love God and serve Him with all our might.
Never underestimate what Christ did for us through the Cross. By it our salvation was won, and by it our lives and our world can be transformed. What difference does the Cross make in your life?
A Blessed Easter to All,

New Old Doors
Entering into the Mission Chapel you may have noticed that the original doors have been refurbished and restored to their place this past week. Money for this project was given to the Mission through a grant from the California Missions Foundation. Will Schmidt and Roger Bernard restored the doors and hung them this past week. Thank you Will and Roger for all your hard work to make this project possible!
