"The punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53
This coming week is the holiest week in the Christian Church Year. It’s 8 days of the most powerful love of God in the lives of humanity. During these 8 days of Christ’s life, more work was done to save our souls than in any other time of history. It is a week worthy of our attention, of our devotion and our participation. I pray that as we walk through this holy week together, you will honor its holiness by your time and energies.
This year we will again worship according to the schedule below. Two special mentions: Good Friday will again include 3 day devotions and the evening worship service. The times of the day devotions correspond to Jesus being put on the cross and special times mentioned in the Bible. The other special thing is that we are going to have an actual sunrise service this year. The sun is just coming over the horizon at 7:00am, which is the time of our service. Pray that you will make special efforts to join us for that service. It’s powerful to join the women of the Bible who so faithfully went to the tomb so early on Easter morning.
Finally, I would like to encourage you to join us for the Easter Vigil on Saturday night. It’s a powerful service of light, baptism and communion. It’s a wonderful way to welcome Easter morning. That service begins outside in the parking lot at 9:00pm.
Let us give to the Lord the honor, praise and thanksgiving he deserves!
