Dear Friends and Family of LCC,
It is Easter Weekend …. AS LCCERS have heard me say many times, more people are thinking about God and church this weekend than at any other time of the year. How could they not? Even if you kind of believe in Jesus you want to celebrate the fact that He is The Risen Savior of the world. If you believe in Him, and His resurrection, your sins are forgiven. He has made you a new person, a much better person.
Someone you know is waiting to be invited to church by a friend. Who are you inviting?
Easter weekend actually, traditionally, starts on Thursday. Many believers call it Maundy Thursday. Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known as the Last Supper. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday. The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command.” He instituted communion, or the Lord’s Supper and commanded us to love by serving one another.
Tonight at our Sunset Tenebrae Service, 8:00pm we will take communion at the beginning of the service. Then we will look at twelve stations of the cross as they are reported in the Holy Scriptures. We will leave the somber service knowing that Christ was crucified on Friday night and we will come back and celebrate His resurrection on Sunday morning.
We are expecting many guest on Sunday. If you are serving Sunday please arrive a little early. If you are an LCCer and you can join me parking in the grass behind the building, that will be awesome.
This “Miracle” series is going to be interesting and inspiring…. I promise.
If you were not here last Sunday, we got to introduce our new worship leader Paul Cook , his wife Stephanie, and their children Seth and Carise. Not only is Paul a gifted worship leader, but as a family, they are a great fit in the LCC family. Go by and introduce yourself on Sunday and friend them on FB.
We have much on the calendar this next couple of months and we just started a new young adult life group that had thirteen in attendance on Wednesday night.
I hope to see you Sunday. Bring a friend.
May God Bless you more than you could ever imagine.
Your Brotha from anotha motha
