Love in Christ,

Pastor Kristie

Morning has broken like the first morning; blackbird has spoken like the first bird. 
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning! Praise for them, springing fresh from the Word! 

Sweet the rain’s new fall sunlit from heaven, like the first dew fall on the first grass. 
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden, sprung in completeness where His feet pass. 

Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning born of the one light Eden saw play! 
Praise with elation, praise every morning, God’s recreation of the new day! Type your paragraph here.

Large enough to serve, Small enough to care

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ! ​

          God’s re-creation of each new day, new season, new opportunities, new calling, new hopes, new dreams, new visions, etc. is a blessing beyond measure. Spring is a time of new-ness and of renewal as it holds all the promises of ‘resurrection’, through the amazing love of Jesus as He stretched out His hands and willing-ly died on a cross, for you and me to be free from sin and reconciled into a personal relationship with our God. Therefore, I invite you and encourage you to join us for our Holy Week Services. 
          We will begin with Palm/Passion Sunday celebrating the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. On Thursday we will have our Maundy Thursday service where we enter into the remembrance of the Passover meal Jesus shared with His disciples and partake in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. We will gather on Fri-day for our Good Friday service where we have an opportunity to find ourselves at the foot of the cross. My beloved brothers and sisters, there is NO resurrection without the cross. Please make sure that sometime be-tween Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday that you encounter the cross. The fullness of the resurrection is missed if you do not. And finally, we will gather on Easter Sunday to celebrate the empty tomb—the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
          Easter Sunday is but the first day of the Season of Easter which lasts 40 days and is a feast season. The season of Lent and fasting is over. It is now a time of celebration and feasting. As part of our Season of Easter, I will be offering a ‘Blessing of the Animals’ service on Earth Day, Saturday the 22nd. Come, bring your pets and join us for this special time of blessing. I will also be offering a silk-dying workshop “Experiencing the Col-ors of God” on Saturday the 29th. This promises to be a time of worship, fellowship and fun as we create two pieces to take home with us filled with the colors of God. 
          April is definitely going to be filled with opportunities to encounter God through Jesus Christ and cele-brating Easter and all its promises. God invites you to receive and participate in His blessings. 
          May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26)
