A word from Pastor Rich Block
The church council is currently working on "Guiding Principles" for this year. These are a series of statements with measurable objectives describing what we are working on for the coming year. These statements are listed below one of four topics: befriend, invite, disciple and send.
Hopefully those four words are familiar because they are part of our Mission Statement. "Jesus BIDS us: Befriend, Invite, Disciple, Send." Have you noticed that the word BIDS is the first letter of the four descriptive words that follow what we believe that Jesus is instructing us to do?
One of those - invite - is especially appropriate during April with Holy Week and Easter right in the middle. Invite someone to come and worship with you. Perhaps you could pick them up and bring them to church. Maybe you want to invite them over to your house or go out for a meal with them after the service that you attend.
May God be with you as you prepare for and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.
Messenger Message from Pastor Rich Block
“From the very beginning, Christian faith has rested on the mystery of Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection. “Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again” is our Eucharistic (communion) Easter proclamation. The church’s story begins and ends with the Easter proclamation….” (from A Pilgrim People by John Westerhoff III, page 11).
Holy Week and Easter Sunday are essential to the Christian faith. Without the death of Jesus we would still be struggling with sin, separated from God because of our rebellion against God. Without the resurrection of Jesus we would be without the hope of the resurrection to life for ourselves. So what can we remember from this holy week?
