Welcome to worship this Easter Sunday. Although, we celebrate the resurrection every Lord’s day, this is a good time to be reminded that our God’s not dead, He’s surely alive. We don’t serve a dead hero, but a risen Lord!eHe isw surely alive.
This weekend, the movie “Heaven Is for Real” was released. This is a very thought provoking movie. Do we really believe that heaven is real? Then, what will it be like? This movie challenges us to think about the reality of heaven—our goal! If you have read the book, you will enjoy the movie. It’s still great even if you haven’t read the book.
We want to offer a special welcome to all of our visitors. You will always find a warm welcome here. We hope and pray that our Bible study and worship time together will draw you closer to God. If we can be of assistance to you please let us know and we will do the best that we can to help you. When you can we hope that you will come back and worship with us.
Today, our lesson is entitled: Easter Sunday: The Resurrection. The first Easter Sunday was so good because the day before had been so bad. Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion and Easter Sunday the resurrection. The Saturday in between commemorates desperation. In our celebration of Jesus’ resurrection, we will see how we can get unstuck from Saturday and move into Sunday. I hope you will study along with us.
We will complete our six week study of Prayer, this morning. We have been considering the videos on prayer by Philip Yancey. They are available on www.rightnowmedia.org. We are having a panel discussion with Joseph Gannon, Norbert Vazquez and me. We will combine the young adult class and the annex class for this study time. Please come and be a part of this very important final study. Our lesson is today is entitled: Does Prayer Change Anything? (6).
This evening Brad’s Care Group will meet at the church building at 6 p.m. The other Care Groups will not be meeting. Everyone is invited to the annual potluck and Easter Egg Hunt at the Sneeds’ home, following our morning worship time.
I love you with the love of the Lord. Bob
