Dear Church Family,
I simply have three prayer requests to bring to your attention this month.
1. EASTER WEEKEND
Please begin praying for all the different opportunities for ministry that our church will have this Easter.
Friday – April 15th at 6:30 pm
Good Friday “Night of Worship” – This service at South Campus is a perfect opportunity to invite people to come and hear of the great display of love that God showed by sacrificing His one and only Son for undeserving humanity.
Saturday – April 16th at 10:00 am
Family Easter Celebration - This event at North Campus will offer something for everyone. There will be inflatables, food, and one huge Easter egg hunt that kids will not want to miss. This is a great event to invite your friends and family to come be a part of as there is something for everyone.
Sunday - April 17th at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 am
Easter Services – We will offer three worship services on Easter Sunday at South Campus. People are more open at this time of the year than any other to come to a worship service in a church. I want to encourage you to be praying for who it is that you will invite to come with you to Easter service this year.
2. WORSHIP PASTOR SEARCH
Please make it a point of your personal prayer time to pray for our worship pastor search. God knows exactly the person that we need to lead us in this key area of our church. I am confident that as we pray and ask God to lead us that He will. Pray specifically that God would lead us to someone who is gifted to lead our church in God-focused, powerful, moving worship. I have all confidence that God will lead us to who He has for us for this season in the life of our church.
3. THE SCOTT FAMILY
I do not make it a habit to come to you and solicit your prayers for my family, but I feel I need to in the season of our lives. Sending Nick, Melissa, and Eliana off to Japan on mission was a great moment for our family! We are so happy to see them go and serve the Lord in this way. As I shared on Sunday, for us to feel any other way would not be right. But it is hard to “lay down your objections” when God moves in ways that you were not expecting. Please do not misunderstand me, we are glad they are there, but just pray for us because there will be days that we will be tempted to pick up some of those objections that we have laid down.
We know that God will take much better care of them than we ever could. We trust Him. But there will be times when we will miss them tremendously. Pray that when those times come that we will remain faithful and focus on His will for their lives and not our own selfish objections that we may be tempted to pick up and hang on to in that moment. Thank you for your prayers.
I love you and I love being your pastor!
