Christ is Risen!

Good afternoon everyone!

I hope and pray that this Holy Saturday has been one of peaceful reflection as we wait in the “in-between” day that bridges the agony of Good Friday and the jubilant rejoicing of Resurrection Sunday.

Don’t forget that tomorrow morning, Sunday, March 31st, the churches of Lake City are still having an Easter Breakfast in the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall at 8:00am. Bring an egg-based casserole, a bow

l of fruit, or something sweet and join us for this communal time of fellowship and food.

Then, at 10:00am we’ll gathering in the CPC sanctuary for our Service of the Resurrection! Following the service, will be a time of fellowship with coffee and cookies.

For those who missed it, we had a blessed time during our Sacred Meal of Remembrance on Maundy Thursday. Many thanks to those who helped prepare and clean up afterwords.

Here are your announcements for the week:

No Monday night Games Up Here this week!

Palm Sunday Community Worship Service

Hosanna! Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!

Happy Palm Sunday Eve everyone,

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost at the end of the lenten season. Tomorrow, March 24th, we’ll gather with the other Lake City churches for our first Palm Sunday Community Worship Service. The service will be at the First Baptist Fellowship Hall at 10:00am. With palms in hand, we’ll sing our “Hosannas” to our triumphant King. Also, don’t forget that our offering tomorrow will go to supporting CCS (Christian Community Service). After the service, please join for a time of fellowship with coffee and cinnamon rolls. For those unable to be present in person, the service will be broadcasted via Zoom through the link provided below.

Although our programs will look different this week, don’t forget that we’re still having our Wednesday weekly Bible study on March 27th at 5:00pm. We’ll wrap up our Sacred Days series by exploring the holiest day of the year–Resurrection Day (also known as Easter).

Fifth Sunday of Lent

Hey Everyone,

I hope this post finds you all safe and warm, but not too warm. I hear that it’s scorching in Texas this week, while we’re getting inches of snow. This coming Sunday, March 17 is a special Sunday. In addition to being the Fifth Sunday of Lent this year, it’s also St. Patrick’s Day. In honor of this remarkable saint, we’re going to have an Irish themed St. Patrick Potluck after the service. So break out your best Irish fare or just make a green dessert and join us in Darley Hall, directly after the worship service this Sunday.

This Sunday, you will also be able to sign up for our Sacred Meal of Remembrance, which will take place on Maundy Thursday, March 28th. Look for the sign up sheet in Darley Hall on Sunday.

Just a reminder that we will NOT be having games this Monday, March 18th but we are still having our Weekly Bible Study at 5:00pm on Wednesday, March 20th, however, this week’s study will ONLY BE ON ZOOM. This week we’ll continue with our Sacred Days series as we look at Good Friday.

Here are your Zoom links and the order of worship for Sunday:

Fourth Sunday of Lent

Greetings everyone,

Well, it’s that time of year again, that horrid Sunday when we turn the clocks forward to Daylight Savings Time. So don’t forget to set all your clocks tomorrow night, lest you be late for church on Sunday morning.

This Sunday, March 10th is the Fourth Sunday of Lent and we’ll be meeting as usual in the Sanctuary and on Zoom for the worship service. If you’re joining us via Zoom, please use the link below. There you will also find the Order of Worship for this week’s service.

No new announcements this week, other than to let you know that games, Wednesday Bible Study and Men’s prayer breakfast are all on for this week.

Third Sunday of Lent

Hey Everyone,

I hope the month of March has already been a blessing in your lives. I look forward to seeing many of you in worship tomorrow, Sunday, March 3rd, which is the Third Sunday of Lent. Tomorrow we’ll be celebrating the Lord’s Supper during the worship service. If you’re joining us online, please bring your own elements to the broadcast.

Despite being the first-Sunday-of-the-month, we will NOT be having our monthly potluck tomorrow, Sunday, March 3rd. This month, St. Patrick’s Day falls upon a Sunday, so we thought it would be fun to have an Irish themed potluck on St. Patrick’s Day Potluck on Sunday, March 17th.

Our weekly programming is starting back up this week with Games Up Here on Monday, March 4th, from 7:00pm until 8:30pm. This week we’ll also see the return of our Wednesday Bible Study on March 6th from 5:00pm to 6:30pm in Darley Hall and on Zoom. For the next four weeks, I’ll be teaching a four-part series on Holy Week. We’ll be exploring Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Resurrection Day. If you’ve ever wondered about the theology, history, and practice of these sacred days, join us for the next four weeks on Wednesday nights.

Below you’ll find your links for tomorrow’s service and the Wednesday Bible study and the order of worship for tomorrow’s service.
