What a great Easter! I hope you were blessed by the time with God you invested. I hope your faith was encouraged. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the center of our faith and the center of our celebration each year. We saw more people than we ever have before in the history of our congregation. It took each and everyone of us being willing to pray, serve, invite, and worship to make this happen!
This week we are starting a new series that I hope will take your faith to the next level. We are going to be diving into some of the richest scriptures in the Bible, challenging one another to learn them, commit them to memory, and apply them to our daily lives. If you have ever wanted to know how to take simple truth from the Bible and put them into action in your life you will not want to miss these next several weeks.
I am fully aware of the Bible can be confusing, seemingly contradictory, as well as downright off-putting at times. What we plan to do in the next few weeks is focus on rich nuggets of scripture and teach them in a way that you will have God's goodness in your mind and your heart when you go to work and get home the other six days of the week.
We believe God has every intention to build on the momentum of this past weekend. The resurrection is not simply a day but a way of life. Will you join us this Sunday to live in the power of the resurrection?
We look forward to seeing you Sunday and want to encourage you to continue to be people of the invitation. Almost everyone who came to worship for the first time on Easter came because a friend invited. Why don't you be that friend this week? Follow up and offer to save them a seat Sunday.
