Hello Grace Church Family and Friends!

Happy Easter 2022… Jesus Christ our Lord is risen! As we rest this evening, we anticipate our Lord coming forth from His borrowed tomb. Our HOPE is based upon Jesus stepping forth from the tomb! I love reading Revelation 1:17-18 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the First and the Last: 18   I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Let that truth sink in. WHAT A GREAT VICTORY IS OURS THROUGH JESUS!!! 

Our Easter Celebration includes a power packed musical presentation by our Grace Church Choir! Don’t miss it! They will present five Easter songs. The signature song is Celebrate Our Savior! The total package lifts up our Lord Jesus in all of His glory and majesty! You will be touched in a wonderful way as you consider the offering up of God’s Son on the cruel cross! We all will be moved as we focus our attention on the price that was paid for our sins! Paul said it right when he wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:17 (KJV) And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. What a crushing thought! Tomorrow at 11:00AM, we’ll all rejoice together that He is risen, and that our sin debt has been paid in full!!! Our great HOPE is found in our risen Lord! My message is entitled, “HERE’S HOPE!”

As you pray this evening, please consider these needs: Pastor Tom McCracken, Pat Hoffman, Luke Wills, Dennis Campbell, and our Grace Church Choir as they sing tomorrow, Mike Smith, Brad Smith, Andy Sugg, David Stahl, Lynn Farrell, Dawn Adams, Grant Robertson, friends traveling, Ukrainian aide and relief efforts, and friends invited to our Easter Services tomorrow. I know you’ll add others. The important thing is to pray!

I wish we all could be praying together right now! Since that isn’t the case, let’s all determine to seek the Lord in prayer as we prepare our hearts for tomorrow. Weekly, I meet and talk to people who are struggling with life. I point them to our Risen Lord. Maybe there is someone on your heart right now, call them and invite to church with you tomorrow. You never know what God might do! Be open to His leading and He’ll work through you! God bless you. I’ll see you in the morning! I can’t wait to see you and your family!

Glorifying our Risen Lord!
