Sunday is the day. It’s the most holy of days in the world of the Christian. Now, you probably think I’m talking about Easter and I am. Easter Sunday is the traditional day of resurrection celebrated by Christians the world over. It’s a special day for gathering with family and attending services at sunrise and normal hours at your place of worship. But each Sunday is considered to be the Lord’s Day and a day of rest. In the book of Genesis we find that God created the heavens, the earth and everything in them in 6 days. He then rested on the seventh. Elsewhere in God’s Word we find God’s ten commandments listed as in Exodus 20 verse 8, “Remember the Sabbath Day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God…” Each Sunday we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord by worshipping God in song, reading God’s word, reading the Psalms, the Gospels, prayer and sharing the feast of the Lord, Communion.
Join us this Sunday, Easter and every Sunday at 9:30 for Sunday School and 10:30 for Easter Celebration. It’s a service of remembrance and worship of God. All are welcome, no matter where or how you find yourself in life.
This Thursday is a day known as Maundy Thursday. Maundy is a word used to describe the acts that Jesus performed particularly at the Last Supper with his disciples. He served them, instituted the meal of communion and washed the feet of his followers. In short Jesus demonstrated how the first were to be last and the last were to be considered first. He served his followers at feast and in commitment to their health and comfort. On Thursday April 13 we will serve a candlelight meal and hold a short devotional session. Following the meal we will take turns staying awake at the church until the morning of Good Friday. Jesus had asked his Apostles to stay awake and pray and we will honor that request.
I have to mention that worship will be followed with the most important act of the day, at least it was when I was younger. We will hold an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. The bunny has been very busy and there are always plenty of eggs to find. In fact we found some last week when we were sprucing up the lawn. The only thing worse than not finding all the eggs is finding more than you hid.
Take advantage of all that this season means and holds, join us for opportunity to serve the Lord and worship him together with your family, friends new and old. We are easy to find, just three colorful blocks north of historic downtown Tallula at 311 North Yates. I’m sure you will be glad you came or my name isn’t Dave Poeschel. Pastor and as I always say, “A sweaty bunny means lots of eggs, and We’ll leave the light on for you, the light of Christ.”
