There is so much to be thankful for following the wonderful revival here at Grace. We saw increasing attendance throughout the week, with 74 participating on the last night of the meeting. It looks like in all we saw 267 people take part from Sunday night to Wednesday. I thank God for the faithfulness of our membership.
There were 200 Eternal Life tracts which were placed in the seats of the Worship Center last Sunday morning. All during the week, these tracts were given to people by our members as a means to share the Good News about Jesus. Each night during the revival, people shared how God gave them an opportunity to give the tract and to tell someone about the Lord. Each person relayed an amazing testimony of the way God used them to do His work throughout the week. I want to praise God and thank Him for everyone who shared a good word about Jesus, invited someone to attend or prayed for people to be saved during the week. God answered our prayers. There were 4 who professed faith in Christ. Numerous people came forward to make commitments for a closer walk with the Lord. At this time, we are planning to baptize 5 people on Easter Sunday as a result of our revival emphasis.
I also want to thank God for our Praise Team who served every night preparing our hearts for worship. The team was fantastic in leading praise songs which glorified the Lord, encouraged us all to sing and prepared our hearts for the preaching of God’s word. God is doing a great work through those He has called and placed among us to lead our worship. We thank God for you.
We are now headed toward the celebration of RESURRECTION SUNDAY. In preparation, we will worship together on Good Friday with music, worship through God’s word and the observance of the Lord’s Supper. Make your plans to start the Easter weekend with the people of God here at Grace for our praise and worship service at 6:30 pm.
Young people will gather at our home following the service for snacks, fun and stuffing Easter Eggs. Our Children’s Easter Celebration will be Saturday morning, March 26th at 10:00 am. Bring your children and grandchildren, invite friends and neighbors. EVERYONE WILL ENJOY THE FUN!
Can God give us 200 people Easter Sunday morning in Bible Study and Worship? I believe He can and will according to our faith. Let’s BELIEVE BIG—PRAY BIG—ANTICIPATE BIG as we look forward to RESURRECTION SUNDAY. God is “…able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us” (Ephesians 3:20).
