Easter at actionchurch

sundaymornings...

This Sunday is Easter, the day we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus, the REASON we meet together EVERY Sunday!  Don’t miss it as we REWIND the the story of Easter, through the eyes of an man named Simon Peter who made this incredible statement:

“God raised Jesus from the dead, and we are all witnesses of this.  Now he is exalted to the place of highest honor in heaven, at God’s right hand. And the Father, as he had promised, gave him the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us, just as you see and hear today.”
(Acts 2:32-33)

Be sure to bring your “FRAMILY” to listen in as we REWIND and explore what Jesus’ resurrection meant to Peter…and by extension ALL OF US today!

This Sunday will also feature a special musical guest “Willet” and the actionkidz crew have an incredible hour of learning, fun, and an Easter surprise waiting for your kids!  We also have a gift for all your first-time guests, so make plans to invite them now!   As always there will also be loads of yummy Maple Donuts, Muffins, Bagels, Hot Coffee,  water,  and great actionchurch people to hang with.   It all starts at 10:30 am  at Frank Theaters Queensgate (Directions).

Jesus’ final prayer (and you’re in it!)

This morning as I prepared for Sunday, I read Jesus’ final prayer as recorded by his best friend on earth, John.   If you are a follower of Jesus, I just wanted to remind you that in his final hours on earth…as he looked forward to what he knew would be a horrendous trial, torture, and crucifixion…he was praying for-YOU!

13 “Now I am coming to you. I told them many things while I was with them in this world so they would be filled with my joy. 14 I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 15 I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. 16 They do not belong to this world any more than I do. 17 Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. 18 Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. 19 And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. 20 “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. 21 I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.  (John 17: 13-20)

If you are a follower of Christ today, remember that even in his final hours, Jesus prayed for YOU!  You are the “light of the world”!  You are the “salt of the earth”. You are the “city that sits on a hill and can’t be hidden”  (John 5: 13-15)  As a follower of Christ you can know that not only did Jesus pray for you…YOU can be an answer to that prayer- TODAY!  ( as you Love God, Love People, and take action!)
