Message from Principal Barnhouse

Dear Faith Families,

Happy Holy Week! This week we spend time looking at the events in Jesus’ life, from His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, to the institution of the Lord’s Supper and His betrayal on Maundy Thursday, His crucifixion on Good Friday, and the empty tomb and resurrection on Easter morning!

I hope as you look back on the events of this week, you are reminded of the love God has for you! He loves you so much that His Son willingly went to the cross for you. Through His resurrection you are forgiven and can look forward to the day when Jesus will come again and gather all believers to Himself for eternal life!

Have a blessed Easter, knowing what Christ has done for you!
