Reflections- "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit." -1 Peter 3:18
The Pastor's Perspective-
Sunday will be Judy Goodwin's "swan song" with the worship choir. Judy will still be very much involved with the music ministry of the church but is stepping down as the worship choir director following the Easter Cantata. Judy was done a wonderful job leading the choir for several years. I appreciate her ministry, the work she has done and all the effort she has put into leading the choir over the years. I hope that you will join me by expressing your appreciation to her.
I also want to express my appreciate to 2 other ladies. Next week, on Wednesday, is Administrative Professionals Day. I want to offer a big thank you to Donna West and Sandy Ratliff for the wonderful job they each do in the roles they fill. They provide indispensable support to the church and to me. When you see them, tell them how much you appreciate the work they do.
Holy Week is here. We have services this week that will help us to celebrate Jesus' death and resurrection. We begin tomorrow night with our In Remembrance Service, our baptism and communion service on Friday for those wishing to be baptized, and the Easter Cantata on Saturday night/Sunday morning. I look forward to worshipping with you and, if you are ready to be baptized, I look forward to baptizing you on Friday.
Please note that there will not be any Lifeline Online next week. Dawn and I are leaving Sunday afternoon to go to New York as our grandchildren are on Spring Break. We will be back the following Saturday afternoon.
