Dear ALBC Family,
We are looking forward to such a great celebration this weekend! On Friday, we gather at 7 p.m. to focus on Christ's death on the cross. There will be a time of fellowship after this service. Then comes Sunday! The joy and hope that is inherit to the truth of the resurrection is transformative. During the 10:45 a.m. Service, there will be a baptism service where we as a church family will be able to participate in the acknowledgement of that transformation that has taken place in the lives of our brothers and sisters. Invite your friends and neighbors to come with you to these special services.
Please uphold John and Melissa LoRusso in prayer as they plan to travel to Haiti on Friday to take custody of their daughter, Jessica. They are still waiting to receive word that her visa is in hand, so please do not stop praying. When they do take custody of Jessica, they as a family have a time of transition to work through which also is something that we can uphold them in. God has been so faithful in this adoption and He is able! It is our privilege as their church family to stand with John and Melissa in prayer during this huge week in their lives.
We also want to remember to continue in prayer for Elise Gahman. During a sleepwalking episode this week, her feeding tube was removed. We are praying that she will be able to start eating and drinking again to the point of not having it be reinserted. Please pray for wisdom and direction for Matt and Jill and Elise's doctor.
It is such a joy to be apart of each other's lives and to get to exist as a church family. May we never take this gift of God called the local church for granted. I am so thankful for you all and am looking forward to what God has for us this weekend.
