We are so glad that you have chosen to worship with us today on this weekend that we look back and celebrate our freedom as Americans!
Someone rightfully said one time that freedom isn't free. Those of us who have lived in America for any period of time recognize that truly this is the case. Men and women have given their lives over the years so that you and I can enjoy the freedom we know, as well as the freedom to be here today to worship God together.
We want to extend a warm welcome to our Easter 2021 service to all of you who are either with us here in person or watching online!
Let me take a moment right here at the beginning of the service to let you know that Jesus Christ is STILL alive and well! I realize we live in a world filled with challenges, and many of them may not seem to have an answer at this moment. Yet, we believe with all our hearts that not only is there “an” answer, but Jesus is THE answer for all you are facing!
We are so glad you have chosen to worship with us today here at (NAME OF CHURCH)! Whether you are joining us here in the Sanctuary or watching online, we trust that this service will be an encouragement to you!
Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a borrowed Donkey which was hardly the typical transportation for a King. The people believed this would be when they would finally break free from the oppressive Roman rule.
They waved palm branches and proclaimed praises to Him, yet those same people would be shouting a far different message just a few short days later. That message would be “crucify Him” as it became clear to them that His Kingdom would not be one that would overcome the Romans at that time.
