My Dear Friends,

I just love Holy Week.   What a wonderful opportunity we had to worship and worship and worship our risen Savior over Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.  For the sake of brevity, let me only highlight Easter.  We were welcomed to the Church with beautiful spring flowers in the outside flower pots.  (Thank you Sue and Bill.)  The sanctuary was also adorned with flowers, and the lily cross.  (Thank you Linda, Steve, Skip, and Joe.)  In addition to the congregational triumphant music, the choir proclaimed in song “I Will Rise” (wonderful), and Pam and Leslie offered, “Hallelujah” (a blessing).  I spoke on “I Believe In Jesus’ Resurrection,” based on 1 Corinthians 15:12-20.  We saw that Jesus staked His entire reputation on the resurrection.  I then presented 3 pieces of evidence that provides convincing proof that Jesus rose from the dead.  (I will put this message on our website)

This coming Sunday my message will be “The New Commission” based on John 20:19-28. We will also be celebrating the Sacrament of The Lord’s Supper.

Have a terrific week …

And good Lord willin’ … I’ll see you all in Church …

Blessings, Rande
