Luke 24:6-7 (NKJV) 6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, 7 saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ”
Can you imagine what it must have been like for Mary and Martha along with certain other women to hear those words from the Angel at the tomb of Jesus? The range of emotions went from the lowest of the low to the highest of the high as the news of the resurrection of Christ began to register first in their minds, then it moved to their hearts and finally made its way to their feet as they soon would be running to tell the Disciples!

Grace and peace to you as we embark on a journey of reflection, meditation, worship, and service over the course of the next several weeks.
The Lenten season differs in many ways from the Advent season: we don’t have a hanging of the greens, we don’t sing carols, and instead of anticipating the birth of the Christ child, we prepare ourselves for His death and resurrection. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him. –Genesis 18:19
Even though I’m a fan of technology, it seems like there’s no escaping it, even if you wanted to. In our modern, digital world, it’s easy to work around the clock: our cell phones are always on and everyone expects their text messages and emails to be answered instantaneously.

Senior Pastor Appreciation Letter to Staff – Christmas
I wanted to take this opportunity during the Christmas Season to express my thanks and appreciation for all you do, and more importantly WHO you are as we serve together here at (NAME OF CHURCH).
Perhaps as we work together on a regular basis, it might seem that we become used to it and fail to properly indicate how much we need each other, not only as staff members but also as brothers and sisters in Christ. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
Thank You to Choir Director for Christmas Musical – Anointed!
Greetings in Christ!
I wanted to take this opportunity to send a note to thank you for the Musical that was presented by the choir under your capable direction during this Christmas Season.
I must say that it was far more than just beautiful melody and harmony sung by gifted people whose voices were more than up to the task. Truly, the songs were songs of ministry accompanied by a precious anointing of the Holy Spirit. I believe the anointing makes all the difference as lives are touched in a far deeper way than any music or lyrics can do. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
I wanted to take this opportunity during this Christmas Season to send a letter to the entire congregation here at (NAME OF CHURCH).
What a year it has been! We had an election season unlike any I have seen, and I don’t know about you, but I’m just glad to be on the other side of it! America is reminded once again of deep divisions in so many areas, yet for the Christian, it serves as a reminder that we are to pray for our nation, as well as those who are serving in leadership regardless of where our political leanings may take us.

Truly at this Christmas Season, we are reminded that we are greatly blessed because of the love of God which was showed in such a powerful way by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to come to this earth.
We celebrate Christmas, and in that celebration, gifts are given and gifts are received. Many do so with little, or no thought of the real meaning of Christmas, yet for the Christian, it is so much more than what we see reflected in the world. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
