Welcome to the Party!

Carry each other’s burdens, 
and in this way you will 
fulfill the law of Christ. 
Galatians 6:2
It has been a sober week here.
Multiple friends and family members 
dealing with
struggles and grief.
They are being lifted up 
in prayer, conversation and concern.

But I wouldn't have it any other way.
These very people have carried 
my burdens in times past
and I know they will 
be there in the 
future.

As we approach a Good Friday Service
this evening we are reminded of the ultimate
example of ONE who bore our burdens.
That of our sin.
Sin that separated us from 
eternal life.

But, the best news of all is that sin did not 
win.....HE arose!

Conquering sin and death!! 
On Sunday
we will celebrate!

What a party that will be!
With Sunrise Service.
With a fabulous Breakfast.
With Amazing Worship!!

You are invited!
It is a huge party...
worldwide.
Are you able to celebrate?
If not, maybe it is time
to investigate why not.

Jesus paid it all
for those who believe in His name
for salvation.

It is a gift free for the asking.
 
From Romans Chapter Five.....
 
You see, at just the right time, 
when we were still powerless,
Christ died for the ungodly. 
Very rarely will anyone die 
for a righteous person,
though for a good person
someone might possibly dare to die. 
But God demonstrates 
his own love for us in this: 
While we were still sinners, 
Christ died for us.

Since we have now been justified by his blood,
how much more shall we be saved 
from God’s wrath through him! 

For if, while we were God’s enemies, 
we were reconciled to him 
through the death of his Son,
how much more,
having been reconciled, 
shall we be saved through his life! 

Not only is this so, 
but we also boast in God 
through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
through whom we have now 
received reconciliation. 

GOOD NEWS
for those who believe!
