Welcome to Hope Talk
Today is Good Friday. We call it that because of traditions that teach that Jesus was crucified on Friday, and so it is a “Good Friday” in that the Pardon for our sins was procured by Jesus on the Cross. I hope you are preparing your heart to celebrate the truth that Jesus is Alive because He is Risen! Indeed! We will begin the day at 7am having a Sunrise Service at PG to celebrate at the very beginning of the day. Then, PG has invited us to have breakfast with them at 8am, and Mutt’s Restaurant has graciously provided much of the food as a gift to our two churches, free of charge. Make sure you thank them, both PG and Mutt’s. Next is our Celebration Service at 9:30am in the gym together, where we will praise the Lord, listen to testimonies, and remind ourselves of the truth of God’s Word. Following this, we will go outside and let balloons go up in the air as a reminder of our future when the Lord comes back for His church. This is His world, and He will remake it creating a New Heaven and a New Earth, (Rev.21:1) both of which will be used to glorify Him without sin. And Jesus will make all things new (Rev.21:5), and God Himself will be with them and be their God (Rev.21:3) ALL OF THIS PROCURED BY JESUS on the Cross and Accepted by the display of the Resurrection. Blessed Be His Name.

Please listen to the songs that we will sing on Easter as they are in the next segment of this bulletin. We will have a song sheet for you; but if you can listen and learn them, then you can sing with a full heart of understanding unto the Lord. Also invite your family and friends to join you as we celebrate.
