FELLOWSHIP AND GROWTH
There is going to be some wonderful time of fellowship and growth coming in the month of March and April. Of course we will be having Lenten services each Sunday morning leading up to Easter, but we will also have some very special events, events that point us to the greatest person whoever walked this earth. His name is JESUS. Ahhh, there is certainly something about that name. It is the name above all names. So, starting in March, we will resume our SUNDAY NIGHT DINNERS AND BIBLE STUDY IN FELLOWSHIP HALL. It has been revealed that some of Jesus’ greatest fellowship and miracles were done around food and drink. Want some examples? OK, what about the feeding of the multitudes which is mentioned in all four Gospels. Then, there is His first miracle in Cana of Galilee. Wow, the disciples sure had their eyes opened to their Messiah and Redeemer that day. What about Jesus asking Zacchaeus to come down from the tree because they were going to have a meal at his house. I wish that conversation had been recorded. However, we know that because of that event, Zacchaeus received salvation.
We will, of course, have our ADULT EASTER CANTATA on Palm Sunday morning followed by our CHILDREN’S EASTER PROGRAM that night. Our Youth will have their SUNRISE SERVICE on Easter morning followed by breakfast prepared by our deacons.
In addition, we will also be having the WALK THROUGH EASTER event again. This is an opportunity not just for our congregation but for the whole community to relive the Lenten story of Christ’s last supper, death, burial, and resurrection as portrayed by our own dedicated members. If last year’s attendance is any indication of the need to hear this message, many will once again learn of the importance of a Savior who came to earth to save souls.
Now here is what you can do to make this the best Lenten season we have ever experienced:
1. Come to all these events; your presence is needed
2. Invite people to come with you
3. Pray, meditate, and reflect on these events in your one-on-one time with God
4. Make an effort to pinpoint how we can grow into a deeper relationship with God, Jesus Christ, and others
Yes, the Lenten season is a busy time, but it is a glorious time of fellowship, reflection, and growth. Let’s support it, participate in it, pray for it, meditate on it, reflect on what Jesus did for us, and grow into a deeper relationship with God and Jesus Christ. Remember, there is no better fellowship than what the church offers and there is no better growth in wisdom than what the Lord offers.
In His Service,
