What a blessing Easter was at Sardis. Between the two worship services we had 92 in attendance. I was pleasantly surprised that many people from the neighborhood walked down to attend the Sunrise Service. Though it was at my back, I am told that the sun coming up over the church was magnificent. I’m already fired up about next year. However, before we get to next year let us remember that for us as Christians, every day is Easter. We live in the power of the Risen Savior.
On a different note, I made a request for each of you to join me in prayer for our nation. We have had three families sign up. Let me once again encourage you to join me in this mission. Prayer changes things and we can have an impact through prayer.
This Sunday the sermon title is “The Sent Church.” The scripture references are John 20:19-31 and Acts 4:32-35. We will explore our mission as a church as it complements the mission of Christ in the world. I look forward to seeing each of you on Sunday and bring a family member or friend to share our time of worship.
