Dear CrossRoads Family,
This weekend, literally millions of people around the world will come together to remember the single most important event in human history. As one pastor remarked, "Christians, mainly, but even a lot of Muslims, Jews, Hindus and even atheists recognize that a man named Jesus was nailed to a cross and crucified almost 2000 years ago on the first Good Friday."
As Christians we also believe that Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday- a point that is rejected by many. To accept this truth is to accept Jesus is God, which is what we've been studying in our sermon series entitled "FrontRunner." And His resurrection is what we'll be celebrating this weekend (as we do every weekend)!
HERE'S THE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS FOR THIS SUNDAY, RESURRECTION (EASTER) SUNDAY:
- 6:30 a.m. SUNRISE SERVICE on the church property, 2610 Calvary Road, Bel Air. We’ll have a re-enactment of the women finding the empty tomb and Mary Magdalene encountering the risen Christ! Of course we’ll also have a wonderful time of praise and worship as we witness a beautiful sunrise! Dress warmly, bring a lawn chair, and invite a friend!
- 10:30 a.m. CELEBRATION SERVICE at C. Milton Wright High School. We’ll continue our celebration with a "relighting" of the Lenten candles, signifying the new life we "take on" after having released those things that don't honor Christ. Of course we'll have an inspiring time of worship including a Reader's Theater and a new praise song. Be sure and invite a friend!
I hope you’ll make every effort to attend one or both of these services! And please be praying for those who will come who don’t regularly attend.
See you Sunday! He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
