Hallelujah! He is Risen! He is risen indeed!
Good Afternoon and a Happy Easter to all. The service this morning was a true blessing indeed. The turnout was tremendous and the worship experience was spirit filled. Thank you Joe for a wonderful children's moment that most of us "children" will never forget. The message from Pastor Tom was inspiring, but unfortunately due to an error by yours truly was not recorded, but if you ask anyone in attendance today, they will give you a recap. I was Wrong! Still not easy to say but it is a little less difficult to admit after today's message.
Easter and April Fool's day happen to fall on the same day this year and we were the recipient of an April Fools joke this morning from Pastor Tom. After assuring us that things were still tied up with the town as far as the new building goes, he presented the congregation with a copy of the building permit. This was met with a rousing round of applause and quite a few "Amens" and I think I might have heard a "praise the Lord" or two.
We are on our way and ready to proceed. This congregation and Pastor Tom never being hesitant to proceed has scheduled a Ground Breaking ceremony for Monday Night April 2 at 6pm. That is tomorrow. Be there. Bring a friend or three. For those of you who think this may still be an April Fools joke, we have included a picture of the permit. What a beautiful sight.
Prayer request for the day: Prayers of thanksgiving for God loving us so much that he sent his Son to reconcile us anew to Him
