Palm Sunday (April14) is coming up fast! We are preparing for Holy Week here at our church. Holy Week, is the most important celebration of the Christian faith.
Maundy Thursday, April 18th, there will be NO service but you may come and go for prayer 5pm until 7pm. We will have a Good Friday Service with Communion on Friday April 19 at 7:00 p.m. Then a glorious Ministerial Alliance hosted Community Sunrise Service in the Atrium. Dublin Ministerial Alliance has put together a meaningful program for you to attend at 7:00a.m. Following the early service is a pancake breakfast, at no cost to you, in the fellowship hall. Our regular service on Easter with Communion starts at 11 a.m. So, there is plenty of opportunity to worship and rejoice.
Congratulations to our friend, Tesha Shafer, her daughter Corryn has a baby girl named Aria. We are thankful for a safe out-come for the mother and baby.
Jim and Laura Leatherwood’s granddaughter, Aly, has been named to the National Honor Society by her school. So happy for Aly!
There was a great article in last week’s Citizen about Pat Beaty’s daughter, Cari Springfield. If you missed it, you better dig out that paper!
We were informed of a tragedy in Pastor Kens’ family. His cousins that we are fond of and visit in New Mexico have lost a grandchild to murder. She was Michelle Steinman, age 24. She was killed last week in Parker County by her boyfriend who immediately called 911 and surrendered. Please keep the Steinman family in your prayers.
Nancy Wooldridge was our Worship Leader and she read the scriptures from 2 Corinthians 5:16-21. The letter to the Corinthians was written by St. Paul.
“Be Reconciled to God” was the title of Rev. Ken Lunsford’s sermon.
Paul says if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of a new creation. The old things have gone away, and look, new things have arrived! All of these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and who gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
Jesus prayed from the cross, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” The impact of His death would never be forgotten by His disciples, nor by his followers today.
Jesus hung on the cross for six hours. A centurion who watches Him die exclaims, “Truly, this man was the son of God,”
Jesus rose on the third day as He said He would and began making appearances to His disciples. He is alive. And because He is alive, we can live too. God resurrected Jesus to live forever in the hearts and lives of those who know Him. We (the church) implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
Come and worship with us, we would be honored with your presence.
