Important Location Change!
CDC guidelines are changing and loosening up for children and socially distancing in classrooms…this means we have a spot for one class to come into the building. Starting the week after Easter, the singles will begin meeting in room 235. The college group gets to take over the whole tent! Yay for no more talking over each other!!!
Passion Week is here! For most of us, we say Passion Week without even thinking about the disconnect that the world has with the word passion. The word passion seems almost sinful in certain contexts yet the Latin root of this word is ‘pati’ which means to suffer. I don’t see the world wanting to suffer for anyone these days. So, we as Christians should think about the suffering that Christ did on the Cross to cover our sin, take our place and defeat death. Here is a word from Paul’s letter to the Philippians to remind us of what he did for us. “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” (Phil. 2:8) As we see that example of sacrifice and suffering for us, may we choose to do the same for our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
Because of Him,
