Hello Friends,

I hope in this Lenten season you are able to be more intentional about prayer and preparation for the Easter celebration.  As part of that I want to encourage to be praying about who God may be putting on your heart to invite to Easter service.  Many people have some positive experience with Easter and are willing to consider reconnecting at this time.  We want to be very intentional about reaching beyond our four walls to be the hands and feet of Christ.  

Are you also encouraged by the new sermon series?  If you didn’t get a chance to read the book of Ruth, please take a few minutes to read it, it’s only four chapters.  Pastor Steve’s message about the book of Ruth shows us that the plan for redemption (our redemption) came through the love and dedication of a Moabite woman who was faithful to her mother-in-law.  The savior of the world was not going to be for one group or locale, but for all mankind.

I hope your week is blessed,

Pastor James
