April Pastor's Corner

I would guess that many of you are happy to be able to put your snow shovels, winter boots, and winter coats away. I have to admit that last weekend as I was putting my snowmobiles away for the year I couldn't help but wish our winter months were a tad bit longer. Living in Michigan gives all of us the opportunity to fall in love with the seasons that we are blessed to experience here, and I love winter. Spring gives us the opportunity to watch the flowers bloom, the tree's bud, but the greatest opportunity we have is to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus! As we begin to move towards April 16'th I would like to challenge everyone to spend some time each day praying for our Easter Services. Pray for hearts and lives to be changed and for the Holy Spirit to move in a mighty way. Pray and ask the Lord whom He would have you invite. Most of us spend a great deal of time spring cleaning, spring repairing, shopping for Easter baskets, chocolate bunnies, and maybe even Easter clothes, but how much time do we actually spend praying for our church and our Sunday Services? Prayer is the most important thing we can do. Jesus loves for us to spend time with Him. When is the last time that you made a commitment to pray daily for something? Won't you consider my challenge and join me in praying intentionally for our Easter services.
