Easter morning! What a grand time of gathering. Breakfast at 8AM, serving 'til 9AM. I hope you can come to both. The Message will focus, in part, on the purpose for Christ's Church ... but also the purpose of Jesus' resurrection. Why would God bring Jesus up from the grave? Why would Jesus establish the Church ... why was the Pentecost event significant? OK, so we may have to let that last question slide a little for sake of time, but I really hope we can get to the previous two. What is this 'stuff' all about? Is there a connection between Jesus' activity through life, death, resurrection and ascention -- and the establishment of His Church?
Two hints I leave with you: 1) Genesis 3:19 ... 2) Matthew 16:18.
What do these texts have to do with anything? Consider the Title ... and come, commune, worship, and find great joy!
See you Easter morning.
