Word of Encouragement

For Paul, each church he started has its own feel. The people in the church set the mood and the church rises and falls on the work of the people.  Paul just loves the way the Philippian church works, the way the people make good things happen. He says, “If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.” Philippians 2:1-2 Any leaders’ greatest joy is watching his people succeed and work together on purpose. We have a sequence of planned opportunities that are all meant to work together so that we can connect with those longing for a relationship with Jesus. March 10 we will have a ministry fair in church as we form teams to create a Good Old Fashioned Easter. Everyone will have a chance to get on board and create an opportunity to connect with friends and neighbors on Easter. Then on March 16 we will have a get ready to go day here on campus and get the campus ready for our visitors. All hands on deck as there are many projects. Then on Easter we plan to have not only great services of celebration but an outstanding brunch, a fun photo op for families and some games and an egg hunt for the children. Join in the fun and make the joy of the Lord come alive for others.

~Grace & Peace~
