Newsletter - April 2016

We have been busy around church this past month. The game night did not go as planned but we will try that one again. The children’s Easter celebration was good even though it was cloudy and gloomy, we had 7-10 children and they had plenty of candy to go around. Easter service was great the church was almost full even at 7am. The music was great and the youth did a skit that really told what the true meaning of Easter is all about. I hope you were with us and if not plan to come Sunday and join us as we study God’s Holy Word and sing Praises in Jesus’ name.
Now here is what we can see going in right now:
  • April 30 6pm - Southern gospel music concert featuring “Chronicle” love offering will be taken up. Make your plans to attend and bring some friends.
Now for the pastor's bite: As some start April with jokes and pranks with April fools day, I would like to encourage you to share Gods love with a smile. 1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (niv). Now that is something to smile about for those of us that have put our faith and trust in the Jesus who died and rose again. Now this verse will explain why your neighbors, friends, and even family will think that coming to church is foolish, but it does not have to be that way if we are willing to bring the story of Jesus to them and it becomes real in their life. So while some are joking around and I do like to laugh and joke, be sure to tell them about why you are able to have a smile on your face. That would be that Jesus is in your life as your Savior and not just someone that you have heard about. That story my friend is worth sharing with others, so get out there this month and share it. I‘ll save you a seat on Sunday and bring some one with you. Have a Blessed April!

In Christ’s Love

Pastor, Eugene
