Welcome to Guthrie Grove Church of God; we're glad that you are here. Each day is special: a gift from God and a day in which to rejoice: but today is very special. We celebrate the good news of Jesus' resurrection. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. (Matt. 28:6)
