Make-up tests for travel will not be scheduled.

Easter is just a week away, where we celebrate and remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a place to worship on Easter Sunday, feel free to try Forcey Bible Church. You can find information on their special Easter offerings at

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you. Matthew 28: 5-7

Have a great Palm Sunday weekend and enjoy the Easter Break!
