A Note From Pastor Alan
In three weeks, we will celebrate what I believe is the holiest holiday -- Easter. During the last supper our Lord had with His disciples, He told them (us) to observe the Lord's Supper until He comes again. We are to remember what He did on the cross to bring salvation to us through His payment of our sins. The resurrection is proof that He is son of God and the only one capable of mediating between the Almighty God and sinful humankind.
The apostles, followed by the early church, chose to mark the resurrection by worshiping together each Sunday. In addition, the early Christians continued to observe the Passover with an emphasis on the death and resurrection of Jesus as our Passover Lamb. By the middle of the 2nd century, the church began to celebrate the resurrection annually that became our Easter.
During the next few weeks, begin to prepare yourself for Easter and join us in celebrating what no one else has done - rise from the grave! Read the gospel accounts of the passion week, the time between Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the resurrection. Meditate on how Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection changed your life and give praise to God.
Invite your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to join us Easter Sunday, April 4 for a great day of praise and celebration. Our theme for the day is "I'm Sure; He's Alive!" We have plenty of room for social distancing for you to attend that Sunday or you can watch us on Facebook.
Remember: He is Risen!
Pray For Our Missionaries
Joshua Valdez says Farmington is a place of emotional and spiritual darkness and that many struggle with feelings of despair or worthlessness. It’s also a melting pot of culture and religion. Its residents are mostly Hispanic and Navajo, and the Navajo are very much “a forgotten people,” said Joshua, who also has both heritages.
In addition to serving as a church planter, Joshua also works as an intervention specialist at a local high school. “I see the hopelessness of the youth,” he said. “Most of them are coming from really rough situations.”
But many have grown to trust Joshua and visit his church plant, Higher Ground Church. During youth group gatherings there, he intentionally teaches the Bible verse by verse. Many are hearing it for the first time, and it’s changing their lives.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM (CP) is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support of both CP and THE ANNIE ARMSTRONG EASTER OFFERING provides Joshua the opportunity to build intentional relationships and share the hope of Jesus with others.
PRAY for more students to join Joshua’s Bible studies and for members of Higher Ground Church to be a light to their community.
