He is the Resurrection and the Life

      Just a cursory study of the early days of the church found in the book of Acts will reveal that the predominant message of those first believers centered on the remarkable resurrection of Jesus Christ. And why not? The victory of Christ over death and the grave was the vindication of His claims to be the Messiah! And furthermore with the ultimate enemy of death overcome what did they need to fear? Absolutely nothing!

     But the astonishing truth goes far beyond giving us a hope beyond death. The power of Christ revealed at the empty tomb now dwells in us! This is life changing truth if we can truly grasp the implications of it. The life of Jesus could not be extinguished by the cold hand of death and it could not be confined to a stone tomb prison! There is unbelievable life and liberty in the empty garden tomb. It is our prayer that you will join us for a series of messages during the 11 O’clock hour on Sunday mornings during April to explore more of what it means to possess ‘resurrection power’. ‘Easter’ is not just about one Sunday out of the year; it is about walking through the year (in fact all of life) in a whole new dynamic way!  

​     Of course you would suspect that this month would be full of additional activities and you would be right! We have a brand new ladies Bible study on the book of Hosea on Sunday evenings at 6:00 and repeated on Thursday morning at 10:00 if that fits better into your schedule. On the very firsst day of the month we will be having a special Children's ministry workshop taught by the 'Cool Kids' ministry team. The workshop is free, just see Brad Harris for details.

     We will also be having two special clean up and fix up days to spruce up our facilities and be good stewards of God's house. You don't have to be a 'handy man' (or woman), just willing to invest a little sweat equity and enjoy some Christian fellowship in the process.

     On Wednesdays we continue in our study through Marks gospel and interestingly enough we just happen to be examining the week leading up to the crucifixion. On Thursday April 6th at 7:00 we will have our annual 'Celebration of Grace' by observing the Lord's Table and 'remembering His deaath until He comes.'

       There's lots to do this month so why don't you just SPRING on in and join us this month! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Praying for God's richest blessings this Spring,

Pastor Steve Parks
