The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” (Matthew 28:5-7)
Dear Abundant Life,
We have so much to celebrate because of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus! We hope to see you all this weekend at ALBC as we celebrate Easter together!
What a great morning we had this past weekend! We thank the Lord for the opportunity to meet several new families from the community at our Easter Egg hunt and during the fellowship time afterwards. Many thanks to the Cheke and Bruton families as well as everyone who volunteered their time and resources to make this event a success. You can view pictures of the event on our facebook page.
Thank you to those who signed up for Friday night’s Seder meal. During the meal we will be talking about how the Israelite's freedom from Egypt foreshadowed Jesus' saving grace on the cross, looking at both the Old and New Testament. This is a free event, and you are welcome to bring guests, but if you haven’t signed up yet, please let Gary Rader know how many you are bringing prior to 5pm on Thursday.
If you have any questions, see John Supplee or Gary Rader.
The highlight of Easter Week will be our Easter Service this Sunday, a joint celebration service with our friends at Providence starting at 9am on April 21st. The children of Grace Place will share a song leading into a time of worship led by ALBC. Pastor Tim Doering will then bring the Easter message followed by communion led by Pastor Curtis from Providence. We are looking forward to celebrating the free gift of salvation made possible by Jesus’ death and resurrection. Come celebrate Easter with us!
Our ushers will be looking to maximize our seating capacity. Please be sure to be on the lookout for any guests that may be looking for open seating.
Don’t forget to invite a friend!
