Hold That Thought…
Are the only three words possible to describe this past Easter Sunday morning! Everything about the day, from beginning to end, was pure joy. Gathering with some 250 people at the break of dawn made for a special sunrise service not soon to be forgotten. All who shared faith and fellowship beside the beautiful beach received the greeting that Christ Is Risen Indeed. The Spirit of the Risen Lord was alive and well as we worshipped in the Sanctuary for three more glorious services. The music and the message, the lilies and the liturgy combined to inspire one and all. Many thanks to those who participated early and often, as well as to those who made these services possible.
The joyful note continues this week as we experience Jazz Worship at all three of our worship opportunities. Once a year, on the Thursday (6:00) and Sunday (8:45 & 11:00) following our Easter Celebrations, we tap our feet and clap our hands to the beat of jazz. Join the enthusiastic band as we sing spirituals and songs of praise, as the Psalmist says. My guess is that you will leave with your spirits feeling the faith and humming the tunes. The only way to make these services more joyful is invite family and friends to join us. Together we will gather to make sure the beat goes on…
