In Luke chapter 7:36-50, Jesus went to the home of a Pharisee to dine and while He was there, a woman came in and knelt at His feet. She wept on Him then dried the tears with her hair. She also poured expensive perfume on his feet. She was a sinner but she sought out Jesus and faithfully washed His feet. This did not sit well with the Pharisee who was upset that Jesus allowed this woman near him. But just like today, in our sin filled world, Jesus loves all. He died on the Cross for everyone and He seeks all sinners in order to save us. That includes all of us. No one is safe from sin and until that day when Jesus comes again; we will have to face the sin in our lives. Oh what a glad reunion day that will be when Jesus comes back for us.
Our practice for the Easter Cantata is going great. If you want to sing with us there is still time. Our practices start at 5pm every Sunday. We would love to have you sing with us. We need you.
Please keep all those on our prayer list in your daily prayers. Remember those who have lost someone they love and pray for strength and comfort. We pray for healing in all those who are facing surgery and upcoming tests. Pray for Sharon Barlow, Bonnie Bolding, Beverly Schoonmaker, The family of Doris Elliott and all those in the nursing homes and hospitals. It was good to see Herman Raines back in services Sunday. So glad he’s feeling better.
There will be fellowship on Sunday March 30th after our evening services. Yes, that means we eat and we speak with each other. It’s good to fellowship with our friends. On Sunday Apr 13th, that will be Palm Sunday. Our church council will meet at 4:30pm that Sunday night and we will be having open communion that Sunday at 6 pm. This is for all Christians who want to partake in communion with each other and with our Lord.
On April 16th, there will be a quarterly business meeting at 7pm.
On Friday April 18h we will have our Community Good Friday Services at 7pm. Our hosts this year will be at Cross Point Church and the service is sponsored by the Ava Ministerial Alliance. The offering at this service goes to help people in our local community.
Then, of course, April 20th we will present our Choir Cantata “Amazing Grace” during both morning services at 8:30 am and 10:45 am. We hope you will join in and help us celebrate in that first Easter knowing our Savior lives! He paid it all by dying on that cross but we celebrate by knowing that HE AROSE! No longer are we left in Sin but we have the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ.
Have a great week and we pray you will look to Christ for all your needs. See you Sunday. God Bless.
