We serve a RISEN Lord – a man who was sent to this earth as a baby, who walked and lived as a man. He was later crucified and that could have been the end of the story. As a matter of fact some people worship “gods” that lived and died and they celebrate the anniversary of their deaths. However, as Christians we celebrate the life, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We are looking forward to celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Easter Sunday, 2021!
While the past year has been challenging in so many ways, we must never forget that over 2,000 years ago Jesus rose from the grave! No tomb could hold our sinless redeemer who had come to take the guilt of sin to the cross just as if He was the one who was the sinner!
The cross was the cruelest of deaths in that day and was reserved only for the most hardened criminals. As we know, Jesus was not at all anything like that, and as a matter of fact, the main thing He was “guilty” of was loving and forgiving sinners!
Sanctity of Life Sunday is on (DATE), and this year we will be dedicating time during the morning service for this essential day.
On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God's gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protect human life at every stage.
Churches continue to recognize the third Sunday of January each year as National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
