Finally! Yesterday marked the first day of Spring. You have weathered the cold and cloudy of winter and can anticipate the warm and sunny ahead. Much of what now appears dead in nature will soon be resurrected to new life! Could it be that God has a new season ahead for you? Are you ready for it? Are you willing to go into "Spring Training?" Baseball players are gearing up for their new season, which begins this year on Easter Sunday (season opener is April 5, Cardinals in Chicago against the Cubs). Our new teaching series is not about baseball, but "Spring Training" for a new place of service God has for you. It's here, beginning this Sunday. 

 It's time to stretch, sweat, and serve.
