17 Mar Easter 2016
Every year the story of His resurrection gets sweeter. When we gather on Sunday, March 27th for Easter services, I believe the power of God will convert the lost, shake the apathetic believer, and humble all those who seek Him. This year our Easter theme is “He’s Resurrecting Me!” This is not a self-centered focus, but a Biblical reality that: Because Christ is risen, so will we!(1 Corinthians 15).
Two opportunities will prepare your heart for Resurrection Sunday:
1. This Sunday (March 20) is Palm Sunday. We will celebrate Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem for what we refer to as Holy Week. I am sharing a message called The Gate of the Lord from Psalm 118. I am excited about the music and message for this Sunday.
2. Good Friday Service is Friday, March 25 at 7pm. This night of reflection and commemoration is one of the most meaningful gatherings we have each year. Please make an effort to attend, as focusing on the cross will add depth to His resurrection story.
While we enjoy the American traditions around Easter, please do not let anything have a higher priority than your spiritual focus. Let Holy Week be a time to deepen the work of Christ in you, and to invite someone else to this experience. Remember, we exist to Know His Love, Share His Love. I am honored to share these experiences with you.
I love being your pastor,
