Good news today! Jesus is alive, the tomb is empty. This was our focus last night at The Rock as we completed our look at the life of Jesus. We asked a very simple question; Who Is Jesus? That's a pretty thick question. We want our students to know what the Bible says about Jesus and ultimately what Jesus says about Himself. For the last 7-8 weeks we've seen Him teaching, healing, and living. Last week we saw the cross and last night we felt the sting and hurt of the followers of Christ. Imagine what they must have been thinking as their "King" laid in a tomb. All that He said, taught, did and promised now came into question. Forget that Jesus told them it would be like this....think about how they felt. You've been there too....you've concentrated on what you felt rather than what you knew.
I'm guilty of this all the time. In concentrating on how I feel I demean the promises of God and what I know. Their "King" was dead and all they knew was gone. But thank goodness for Easter morning. Thank God the cross was not the end....the tomb was not the end. Praise be to God that the tomb is empty and Jesus, our King, is alive.
This changes everything...
I'd encourage you to spend some time reading through the devotions of last week and this week. Be encouraged by the fact that King Jesus has kept His promises and will keep His promises.
KINGDOM COME DNOW 2016
DNOW is fast approaching! Last night was the deadline to sign up with shirt sizes. Students can still sign up but the possibility of them receiving a shirt that fits may not be so great. Good news is the weekend is not about a shirt....but a God and His Word.
Dates are March 11-13. If you're not sure how DNOW weekend works let me help.
DNOW takes place Friday Night to Sunday Morning. Students are dropped off here at the Church (at 6:30) and meet together for worship. After worship they head to a host home (a member of the church) to spend the night and have some small group time. Saturday morning they wake up and to the church for another worship and small group session. They return to their host home at some point to tidy up and then return Saturday night for the final worship session. After this they return one last time to their host home for their final small group time. Students wake up Sunday morning and head to church like normal and head back home after the morning worship service.
It's a jam packed weekend but one that has so much potential for discipleship, fun, and relationship building. Hope your student can come.
ALSO - We do need a home to host some guys. So if you're available please let me know. I'd hate for them to have to sleep outside in the parking lot.
Roatan - July 9-16
We really need to figure out our numbers for the Roatan Honduras Mission. We are now taking $100 deposits for airfare. If you have questions please see me or email me. I would love to answer any questions you may have.
We are hoping to finalize the team in the next 2 weeks!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
