|A Note From Our Pastor|
RESURRECTION SUNDAY 2022
Dear CG Family & Friends:
I pray that each of you is well and experiencing the abundant blessings of God in your life. As we enter the final weeks of the Lenten Season, I encourage each of you to stay the course as we continue to seek a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. As in the words of the African-American Spiritual, I truly believe that “every ‘round goes higher and higher.” I have no doubt that Resurrection Sunday 2022 will be a powerful testimony to the awesome power of God at work in the world.
Can you believe this will be the first Resurrection Sunday that the congregation has had an opportunity to worship together in-person, in the sanctuary since 2019? I don’t know about you, but I long to fellowship with you — to see you, to hear you. I also pray that each of you will begin to invite your friends, relatives, associates, and neighbors to join us at Center Grove as we celebrate what Jesus has done for us through his life, death, and resurrection! I am believing in God for a season of both spiritual and numerical growth.
The weekend schedule is as follows:
Family Fun Day & Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday, April 16th
Children & Youth Easter Program
Sunday, April 17th
Resurrection Sunday Service
Sunday, April 17th
We will continue to follow our COVID-19 safety protocols in the building by checking temperatures as you enter, face masks are required, and there is plenty of room in our sanctuary for social distancing. Our team of greeters and ushers has been trained to ensure that we do all that we can to remain safe as we worship together. Simply put, we are ready for this great day of celebration!
I close by saying: “Thank you!” Thank you for your faithfulness in supporting the church and our ministry together with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness. We are blessed at Center Grove and it’s because of the power of God working in and through each and every one of you.
