We have prepared a Good Friday Video service for everyone. We will end the Good Friday video service with a Communion time. Whether you are alone or with a family, we encourage you to share the communion time with us and plan now to have some juice and bread ready before you watch the Good Friday video, so you can physically receive communion as Pastor Perry leads you through that time.
Many people this week might be struggling with the feeling of isolation during the “shelter in place” directives of this COVID virus crisis. And yet, this is a good opportunity to recall that although the Body of Christ may not be able to physically gather, we can be together in Spirit through the Living Presence of our Risen Lord Jesus.
I encourage you to take the time this week to read the Easter Story out of your own Bible and spend time praising God for His love and grace during this time. All four of the gospels contain the account of Jesus’ arrest, trial, crucifixion and resurrection. This story is the cornerstone of our faith during these uncertain times. May God give you one of the most positive and memorable Easters of your life!
I googled, “symbols of Easter” and saw a huge list that included cross, lamb, egg, lily, chick, butterfly, and even, hot cross buns! What I did not find was FRUIT. And yet, in my humble opinion, the fruit is one of the best and most Biblical symbols of the hope of the resurrection of Jesus. I will share with you a brief message about the practical benefit of that very truth as part of our Easter Resurrection Sunday Celebration video.
