Luke 15:10 – In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. We know there was rejoicing in the presence of God’s angels yesterday as we shared in the baptism of Wayne Stewart at the conclusion of our worship assembly. We are glad to welcome Wayne to the family of God and we, too, rejoice.
This coming Sunday, March 31, we will be glad to welcome our brother, Don Todd, to Central Church of Christ. Don is founder/director of Memphis Inner City Outreach Mission, in Memphis, TN. Don will be sharing his work in Memphis during the 10:30 worship assembly and he also will be singing several songs of praise to our God. This Sunday evening we will be joining with our sister churches for the 5th Sunday Singspiration service, which will be hosted by the Carey’s Run Church of Christ. Starting time is 6:00 p.m.
We are quickly approaching the time of our remembering and celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. April 21 will be the special day we remember how Jesus died on the cross for our sin and rose from the dead to live again. There are some special events taking place before this special time that I want to mention here: Friday, April 19, we will host a Seder Service which is a demonstration of the Old Testament Passover and the instituting the Lord’s Supper; we will have a sunrise service at the church building on April 21, and weather permitting this will be an outdoor service; breakfast will be served that morning also. There will be a sign-up list posted for the breakfast to help with food preparation. We will be asking you to turn the price of Jesus’ betrayal into an offering of love with the “30 Pieces of Silver” offering to be received on Resurrection Sunday.
Each of us need to be about the work of sharing the gospel news of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection with others who need to be told and need to accept God’s gift of salvation through Jesus. With whom will you share this good news?
