Easter at Discovery

Good Friday & Easter Sunday
Easter resurrection Sunday is this Sunday. My favorite quote about resurrection is by Frederick Buechner, "Resurrection means the worst thing is never the last thing."

Today is Good Friday and we remember Jesus' tremendous sacrifice. We remember Jesus carrying His cross. We remember the brutal flogging, the mocking, the betrayal, and the death of Jesus on Calvary. We remember the words of Jesus upon the cross: "Father, forgive them." "Father, why have you forsaken me?" "Into your hands I commit my spirit." The most horrific event in history is also the greatest moment in history. Resurrection means the worst thing is never the last thing.

I believe that resurrection is the most applicable truth to the pain we experience in this life. We know that it's never the last thing. God has proven His nature as Redeemer over and over and over. The story of Jesus is the story of redemption. I believe every one of us can find something that God can redeem this Easter.

We are starting a new series called, "I Am Jesus." We are looking at specific moments in Jesus' life when He said "I am." This week we are looking at Jesus' statement "I am the resurrection and the life." I hope you will be with us and invite a friend.

You can invite friends, co-workers, and family via Facebook at the following link:

I can't wait to see you on Easter Resurrection Sunday. Please join us at 9 AM for free breakfast, inflatables, and face painting. Please join us at 10 AM for service and an egg hunt following the service. All at Discovery Community Church on Ray & Lindsay.

Discovery regulars: Please be reminded that we are encouraging you to park at South Valley Junior High School on Lindsay Road, just south of the church. Shuttles will be running from 6:30 AM until everyone has been delivered back to their cars. The Discovery Community Church parking lot is being reserved for guests and handicap parking.

See you Sunday! It is an honor and privilege to serve as your pastor!
