Easter Morning!  10 AM
Happy Easter!
I look at my son's hands and I see his commitment to pole vaulting.  His hands are rough with lots of callouses.  He can vault high because he practices--a lot!  He knows the only way to reach his goal is to suffer a little on the way there.  He would be foolish to think he could succeed without sacrifice.

Traditionally, Easter is a hugely attended service.  I hope ours has a huge attendance too.  But, I also hope that we have a well attended Maundy Thursday service.  We cannot really know the joy of Easter unless we know the suffering and sacrifice that began on Thursday and ended with Christ's death on Good Friday.  Without the suffering and death of Jesus our Easter happiness is something we have to manufacture.  We put on a smile and piece together some good feelings from our store of happy memories.  This thrown together happiness cannot begin to approach the joy that comes from knowing the true depth of our Savior's love for us. True joy comes when we comprehend the suffering love that has set us free.  So, I hope you will experience the full joy of Easter by passing through the moments of sacrifice as well. We will celebrate the Lord's Supper together at our Thursday service.  - Pastor Kris
1 Peter 1:8-9 (NIV)
8
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
