Just a few items I want to remind you about.
Good Friday Service
Tonight at 7PM we will have a Good Friday service. Pastor Eva will be sharing the message.
Easter Preparation Work Day – We need your help!
The trustees have scheduled a work day on Saturday, April 15th at 9am. They will be cleaning out a storage room to make room for additional Sunday school classrooms.
We also have a few thousand plastic eggs that need to be filled with candy. Stephanie will be working with as many volunteers as we can to finish this job before Sunday. There will be lunch provided to all those who come out to help.
The Easter Offering is for the World Evangelism Fund (WEF). Traditionally, WEF is collected through two large offerings each year “the Thanksgiving and Easter offerings.” The Nazarene Church has always had a strong history of supporting missions through their generous giving through these offerings.
The law of harvest states that you may not reap when and where you sow—but you will always reap what you sow. As we prepare to give to this offering, remember it will come back to you (Luke 6:38) and the Lord…will bless you in everything Deuteronomy 15:10.
Easter Sunday April 16th
We will start our day with a Breakfast at 9:00 AM – 10:15AM. Followed by our Easter Service at 10:45 AM and at the conclusion of the Easter worship service we will have the children’s EASTER EGG HUNT for everyone 6th grade and under.
On Sunday April, 23rd we will have our annual election of church officers. Make this a matter of prayer that we might have the leaders God wants for us at this time. The church manual gives us these directions about our election:
“We direct our local churches to elect as church officers only persons who profess the experience of entire sanctification and whose lives bear public witness to the grace of God that calls us to a holy life; who are in harmony with the doctrines, polity and practices of the Church of the Nazarene; and who support the local church faithfully in attendance and with tithes and offerings.”
