Cairo

There are now 25 of us in our group, plus our leaders. They met us at the airport - kind of a rapture sort of thing?  Breakfast and then off to the pyramids  (I think - each day is supposed to be a surprise with new discoveries and gifts from God! )

Before our very eyes!

After Jesus had risen from the dead, he walked this earth for another 40 days.  And then, one day, he ascended into heaven. His disciples saw it - "he was taken up before their very eyes"!  We can now see evidence of God's presence, and of Jesus' advocacy on our behalf, right before our very eyes.  Join us as we celebrate Ascension Day, this Sunday, May 21, 8:30 a.m. at WilsonHUB and then at 10:00 a.m. at the church.

May and June

Everyone of us has a mom - today is her day.  Some of us said "good-bye" to our moms a long time ago.  May God bless you with good memories.  Pastor Adam leads us in worship this Sunday, May 14.  I will be preaching on May 21 and then, on May 22, Gerald and I leave for our trip to Egypt, Jordan and Israel.  I'll be back in the pulpit on June 18.

Things that overflow

I know what I usually think of when I think of things that overflow.... but let's go somewhere else.  How about a chocolate fountain?  That's a sweeter thought.  Here's another one, found in I Thessalonians 3:12: "May the Lord make your love increase and overflow..."  This verse is the theme of our GEMS girls' club.  This Sunday is GEMS Sunday and they'll be taking a number of roles in our 10 am service. Join us, April 23, 8:30 at Wilson Hub and 10:00 a.m. at the church on Garner Road.

Worship with us during Holy Week

We are in Holy Week.  It began on Sunday when we celebrated Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. On Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. we gather to remember Christ's crucifixion; Pastor Adam will lead that service. On Easter morning we celebrate Jesus' resurrection. Holy Communion will be served on both Good Friday and Easter morning.  (Note: there will be no 8:30 a.m. First Light service on Easter morning.)
