Hi Good News family!
Here’s a few things you should know this week…
> WHERE IS JESUS NOW? We’ll answer that question this Sunday we’re talking together about Jesus the Son of God. You can jump ahead to be prepared with God’s word; just read Matthew 17; 21; Mark 8-12; 14; Luke 9; 22; John 7-8; 11-12 (Chapter 25 in The Story).
> BAPTISM ON RESURRECTION SUNDAY! Are you a believer in Jesus? Have you been baptized as a believer in Jesus? Not yet? Pick up a Baptism Application from the Information Rack outside the Gym door for info what the Bible says about answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Baptism. Fill out the Application data sheet and give it to any of the elders – Ray Anchan, Freddy Perez, Dave Stebbings of Steve DuPlessie. They’ll schedule a time to talk it all through with you – and get you ready to rise up out the baptism water on the day we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection!
> “CELEBRATION OF LIFE” SERVICE FOR STEVE HIGGINS will be tomorrow, Thursday, April 4th, with visiting hours at GNBC from 5-7PM, followed immediately by a celebration service at GNBC from 7-8pm. Private burial. Details online.
> PRAYER & PRAISE…
- Pray for Kory and the rest of Steve Higgins’ family as they celebrate God’s grace in Steve’s life.
- Praise God for a fantastic re-launch of the Second Chance Clothes Ministry last Saturday! The Friday night Life Group showed up Friday night to help set up. Saturday morning there was a line of Attleboro neighbors at the door to receive free clothes in Jesus’ name!
Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Frances Ridley Havergal | b. 1836-d. 1879
