Preparing for Easter Week as a Christ-follower!

>> Thursday, March 21, 2013

Spring Break is coming to an end and it's time to turn our thinking to the celebration of Easter week.  The first Spring Break Mission Trips will return tomorrow morning and then soon all five of our teams will return--our Jamaca team returns late on Sunday evening.  They will probably be shocked by our cold tundra type weather and the snow and ice remaining in our yards and driveways.

As a church we've been focused these last four weeks on the book of Galatians.  It has been a powerful and good focus for our church family.  We will do our last teaching on Galatians this coming Sunday and that will also finish our Daily Scripture focus upon Galatians.

Our Daily scriptures (from Orchard's website) will move to scriptures from the Holy week story.

In my own preparation for Holy Week and Easter, I will be reading John 12-21.  I will track with the steps of Jesus and try to imagine His feelings, His thoughts, His pain and His ultimate celebration.  I encourage you to add a focus on the scriptures that follow the final days of Jesus' life in the gospels. 

I pray that each person who calls Orchard their spiritual home, will give some extra time and focus upon the final moments of the life of Christ.  And then, make plans to celebrate Easter with us!
