This year a group of very talented Fredsville members have put in hundreds of hours practicing a special musical to be presented on Easter Sunday and in the afternoon of April 23 at 1:30pm. This is the 5th musical performed at Fredsville and we are excited to bring the Easter Story to life in such a creative and fun way! Please invite your family, friends, and neighbors to join us at one of the performances! The musical, “It’s all because of Jesus” will also be taken on the road and performed at New Aldaya on Saturday April 15th at 10am and at the Western Home – Windhaven at 2pm. A very special thanks to all of the choir members for being the support singers and to cast members: Helene Wertz, Annemarie Goldhorn, Linda Nielsen, Meridith Sandlin, Jean Loger, and Pastor Lisa. Special thanks go out to Jeff Sandlin for being our Technical Director and Sound Technician! And to Art Lupkes a special thank you for being our one man props department and building our “television”!
Our God is a God of second chances, as our children learned during a children’s sermon as they attempted to hop little frogs into plastic cups. Even when we miss the mark, we get another try just like they did:
