Look What God Has Done


Tomorrow, Sunday (3/31) is a Resurrection Celebration! This is the day we celebrate our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who has risen from the dead. Paul the Apostle said, "Jesus was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification" (Romans 4:25).  

Early in the morning, on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene, whom Jesus had cast out seven demons, visited the tomb where He was buried. Much to her astonishment, the stone had been removed, and the grave was empty.

Quickly, she ran to find Peter and John to tell them what she had seen. Both men ran as fast as they could, and when they arrived, Peter first stooped down to look at the linen cloths that had been used to wrap Jesus’ body, lying there neatly.

John followed Peter, and when he saw the linen cloths and the handkerchief wrapped around Jesus' head folded together, he believed. He remembered the words of His resurrection, which would undoubtedly occur after His death.

At the time, none of the disciples heard this promise due to the grief that filled their minds regarding the arrest, suffering, and crucifixion of their Teacher. But, now John saw clearly that Jesus had kept His word that on the third day, He would rise out from among the dead, never to die again.

Today, two thousand years later, we celebrate the day that changed the world forever. And we can confidently proclaim that because He lives, we have been declared righteous before God the Father. Because He lives, we never have to fear death. Because He lives, we are confident that He is for us, not against us. Because He lives, we know we will be with Him when this life ends.

When we gather in the main sanctuary, after breakfast (8:00-9:30), we will focus on Paul's words to the Church in Rome (3:21-26), given to him by the resurrected and glorified Christ. It was and continues to be a message for all the followers of Jesus—a message of hope amid a Christ-rejecting, sin-loving, selfish world.

Invite your family and friends to come and celebrate. A recent statistic stated that 82% of people invited to an Easter service would attend. That is a fantastic fact. You have an incredible opportunity;  life has changed for eternity.
BREAKFAST 8:00-9:30 am
WORSHIP  10:00 am
