Can you believe that April is almost over? It must get warmer soon, no?
Tomorrow I will be preaching from Ephesians 3:14-21, and I am eager! I love to think how an apostle prays for a church, and how God will answer that prayer.
Scriptures for tomorrow:
1 John 3:16-24
We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper tomorrow, as we do every Lord’s Day.
“What do we really need, what is our greatest need? Our greatest need is life. Most people today are but existing; they have no life. When their pleasures are shut off, when because of war the cinemas and theatres and public houses and dance halls have to be closed they have nothing. They have not got life; they are but existing, and dependent upon things outside themselves; they need life. But where can life be found? It is Christ again who has said, ‘I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly’ (John 10:10). Life means spiritual life; life means a relationship to God and an enjoyment of His fellowship; and Christ our Lord has it in all its fulness. He says, ‘He that cometh unto me shall never hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst’ (John 6:35). ‘The water that I shall give you’, He says to the woman of Samaria, ‘shall be in you a well of water springing up into everlasting life’. Though the world may take everything from you, though you may be naked and bereft of all things, this life from Christ will still go on springing up eternally within you.”

Wow, the weather is fantastic! Nothing feels better than heading out to church in warm Spring weather. Our Worship starts at 11, our Bible school at 10.
We are excited to have Dan lead the worship music this Sunday, along with members of the youth. We have a good group of talented kids who play or sing almost weekly.
If you come at 10 AM, adults are watching the video series, “From Dust to Glory” by R. C. Sproul. This series is an overview of the entire Bible.
There is also a Bible class for younger children, and one for Jr/Sr high.
Scriptures for this Sunday:
1 John 3:1-7
Sermon text: Ephesians 3:8-13
Jerry M. will bring the Communion Meditation.
See you tomorrow!
