If you’ve ever faced really tough times in life…feelings of being overwhelmed or being alone, then this weekend is for you! And, let’s be honest, who among us hasn’t. Everyone experiences those incredibly challenging times in life, even Christ did. We’ll be looking at principles and strategies from Christ’s life, to strengthen our resolve and make it through, when “The Road” called Life leads us to tough times. Some of life’s challenges are avoidable; others require us to walk right through them.
I want to share something else I’ve been thinking about recently. Yesterday at church, I heard several stories of teams who will be serving others this coming weekend. One was shared by Pastor Rick Rucker, our Student Ministry Director. He shared how several middle and high sponsors will be showing Christ’s love, in a tangible way, by giving some TLC to a church family’s home. Twice this past week, I saw two different teams preparing meals (in the church kitchen) to serve others. And our Medical Missions Team just left to serve in El Salvador. I want to encourage you to find someone to serve today or this weekend…and do it in Christ’s love. We exist to connect people to Christ and one another…Reaching, Growing, Serving…
Thanks for doing your part!
I can’t wait to celebrate with you this weekend,
PS. Don’t forget to pick up Easter invite cards and be sure to grab a “free” Easter ticket, found in the lobby. Tickets will help all of us see which services are filling up and which ones still have available seating and parking.
