Hello Baysiders! Hope as is well in your souls.
My prayer is that we can take the resurrection power from Easter Sunday into the next journey God is taking us, because Jesus is still risen! Alive! For a lot of us, even after the resurrection, not everything is still in order; bills need to get paid, homework needs to be turned in, doctor appointment needs to be made, and more time needs to take place for the heart to be healed. God knows this and is in the process of restoring this world and your life. The resurrection of Jesus is the beginning of world transformation and the start of turning all our wrongs into right–that is where the power is found, where the hope begins and where life is promised. Be encouraged to know the same Jesus who walked out of the tomb 2,000 years ago is the same Jesus who walks with us today. Let’s have faith to trust that and live out that resurrecting power in our lives.
I am excited for our next church outing. On May 5th, we are having guest preacher and evangelist Brett Butler give an exhortation on sharing the gospel and the meaning of the Great Commission Jesus commands us to follow. After fellowship lunch, Brett will give a training session on how to share your faith and then we will be going door to door in our neighborhood and invite them to Bayside Church. Mother’s Day is May 12th and there will be a special Mother’s Day sermon, so make sure you invite your mommas and anyone else to church to celebrate Christ among His heavenly family. Also, clear your calendar for Saturday May 18th for a Church Family Outing, as we will be going to the shooting range! More info to come on this fun event. In addition, Thursday Night Devotions will be on Summer break for month of May and will resume on June 6th.
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Aaron ?;^)
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Jesus, Matt 28:18-20
