From the Pastor
“For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures…” – 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Dear Church Family,
This week is probably the biggest (and busiest) week of the year for Christians. Certainly it can be argued that what we remember and celebrate this week represents the most vital aspects of our faith. For it is on this week that we remember the sacrifice of love that Christ made on the cross so that we can find new life through faith in him. It is on this week that we remember the depth of love that God has for us and just how far God was willing to go so that we could be brought back into a loving relationship with our Creator. It is on this week that we remember just how horrible we can be, as human beings, and yet just how great the love of God is for us in spite of our sins. And, it is on this week that we celebrate abundant and everlasting life in Christ with the story of resurrection…a story of resurrection for us all. This is an important week and I pray that you all take the opportunity, as you are able, to engage with the many opportunities we have for worship during this time. Easter, of course, is a busy and exciting day for the church each year. We have a lot going on and we will have many people coming through our doors, perhaps for the first time. If there is ever a time for us to “step up our game” as a church then this is the day to do it. And so, if you are available to do extra things like greet people in the parking lot, or direct people around the church property, or pick up around the sanctuary between services then please feel free to help out wherever you can. The main thing, though, is to be present and active on Easter to help celebrate with the world on this most important of days for Christians. Worship on Resurrection Sunday is all the more amazing when the church is full and the people are joyful and full of praise. I want to conclude by saying a big “thank you” to everyone who makes things happen at our church each and every week. From our staff, to our volunteers in the praise band and choir, to the sound technicians, to the ushers and greeters, to the Sunday School teachers, to the children’s building workers, we are only able to do what we do because of the work of many different people. I also want to thank everyone who has helped out with the many extra projects around the church, including getting the palms and children ready for Palm Sunday, to those who put together our Palm Sunday luncheon, to those who will make our Bunny Breakfast and Easter egg hunts happen this week. I’m sure there are many others who need to be thanked and I really do want to say that you are important and we are very grateful for all that you do. This is a great church family, and this is a wonderful church, and we have a lot to be thankful for – so thank you. I hope to see you all this week and I look forward to all that God has in store for us here at First United Methodist Church, Port Neches.
