A HEART OF GRATITUDE AT EASTER
Happy Easter to everyone!

Over the last couple of weeks we had many wonderful reminders of the Gospel. Our students participated in Easter Walks and special programs on both of our campuses to emphasize the importance and details of what Christ did for us. These events are deeply meaningful and impactful for the students and loved ones alike. Most of all, I think the students actually planning and presenting in the Easter Walks are forever changed by the power of what they are studying and performing.
 
As we consider the cross this week, I am humbled by the sacrifice made upon it, but I am overjoyed and forever changed because of the empty tomb. Indeed, we serve a RISEN Savior.

In recent Coffee Chats we have discussed some of the things we take for granted at Westminster (I plan to write about that soon as well).  However, I am also struck that there is such a myriad of other things we take for granted.
  • FREEDOM & PROSPERITY. As Americans, we can sometimes take our freedoms or our jobs and homes for granted. Most people in the world don't have anything close to what we take for granted every day. 
  • GRACE. As Christians, I am afraid we often take for granted the great grace our Lord gives to us DAILY. Most of all, the grace we have through Christ leading to salvation. WOW!! I do not deserve one little bit of what Jesus did for me on the cross. NONE of us do. He died for us anyway, despite our sin and rejection. May I never take that for granted. May there never be a day that I do not give thanks. May my life and may your life be lived in a way that demonstrates our gratitude for His great love and sacrifice. May others see it and be affected by it such that the Gospel can penetrate their hearts as well.
Join me today and every day in giving thanks and living as a reflection of the grace and love shown to us. What a joy to live with a heart of gratitude.
 
Have a happy Easter as you celebrate our Risen Lord. I pray your time with family and in worship is restful, yet impactful for you.
 
Have a great week and HAPPY EASTER!

EASTER CELEBRATIONS 
The Lafayette Campus 3rd grade classes held their Easter Program with a touching musical celebration and a powerful narration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The program shared the greatest story ever told - the story of God who loved us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to bring us eternal life. The students sang songs and hymns that celebrate Jesus and His gift of salvation!

                                                                                                               

On our Opelousas Campus the 1st and 2nd grade classes held their Easter Program with a beautiful musical celebration! The students have been working on this program for months and all of their hard work paid off because it was truly a beautiful program! They sang songs that celebrate Jesus and the sacrifice He made for all of us!
In celebration of our Savior's precious gift to us by His death and resurrection, the Lafayette campus experienced the Easter Walk. The fifth and sixth graders orchestrated this event to let each child experience a walk with Jesus. This was a holy time for the children to take part in an interactive Bible lesson that covers the last week of Jesus' life on earth. A special thank you to all of our parent volunteers and fifth and sixth grade students                                                                            for working so diligently to make                                                                              this sacred walk so special!
On our Opelousas Campus the sixth grade students put on the Easter Walk. The students were diligent to prepare for this event and it was truly amazing to witness them acting out the last days of Christ's life, His death, and resurrection for their classmates. Each of the stops on the walk were a different scene in the last moments of Christ's life.  This reminds us what Easter is really all about! Jesus loves  us so much that He 
paid the  price for our sins and 
offers us  eternal salvation.
