This Sunday, we continue in our I Believe Series. Mark will be preaching “Jesus Christ – suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried”.
It is so easy to move past the cross to the empty tomb. To get you ready for Sunday, I invite you to hear from one of the great early church fathers, Athanasius. Linger with his words to help you focus on the Cross and on the suffering that Jesus endured.
“He, the Life of all, our Lord and Saviour, did not arrange the manner of his own death lest He should seem to be afraid of some other kind. No. He accepted and bore upon the cross a death inflicted by others, and those others His special enemies, a death which to them was supremely terrible and by no means to be faced; and He did this in order that, by destroying even this death, He might Himself be believed to be the Life, and the power of death be recognised as finally annulled. A marvellous and mighty paradox has thus occurred, for the death which they thought to inflict on Him as dishonour and disgrace has become the glorious monument to death’s defeat.” Athanasius, On the Incarnation
On Sunday, as we linger at the cross, we will also take communion together. If you are worshipping at home, make sure to prepare some elements. To register for in-person, CLICK HERE.
On Sunday, immediately following the 11 am service, we will have our annual congregational meeting. The session has called the meeting of the congregation/corporation for the purpose of electing officers, receiving the annual report and an update from our capital campaign committee and building committee.
