“The Boardwalk at Lake Mohawk is a wonderful and beautiful setting to celebrate the risen Lord,” said Reverend Parks. The Lake Mohawk Country Club will also host a short reception after the service.  All who attend worship are invited for a time of fellowship.

The Sparta Ecumenical Council was formed in 1968 to educate the people in the Sparta area about Christianity and to work and worship together in discipleship.  The council continues to meet as a support to area clergy & the work of being the Good News to all.  For more information about the SEC, contact the Rev.
