I wish each and every one a blessed Easter!
If you have not been at Eastminster before… or have not been here for awhile… know that your presence is deeply appreciated! Eastminster is in an “Easter Season” of its own—a time in which God is being experienced afresh and leading the church in exciting directions.
So relax and enjoy worshipping God today. Let the music and the Word, the sights, sounds and smells, bring you close to God, who loves you dearly and gave his Son that you might have Life. Lift up prayers as we worship. Praise God. Thank God. Ask God for help and guidance. Give God your burdens. Release your prayers and feel relief as the blessings flow.
My prayer this Easter is that we focus on the living Christ rather than the empty tomb. May we proclaim Christ crucified and raised and alive by the power of the Holy Spirit. May we live in assurance of Jesus’ promise: “Lo I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” May God’s Holy Spirit—God with us now– roll the stone away from those “dark places” in our hearts and lives where hurts, wrongs, unforgiven sins, and resentments dwell. May we surrender into loving, saving arms and come away stronger for having worshipped this day!
Welcome to worship. I hope that this is an exciting day of a renewed spiritual journey for you and for Eastminster. I’d love to get to know you and hear your story, so feel free to contact me or one of the other pastors as you desire. God puts us together for a reason… let’s explore together.
