Day 5 (April 22): It’s Good Friday!

Approximately two thousand years ago today, Jesus was nailed to a cross. Your sins and mine were borne on His shoulders. Fortunately on the third day He arose triumphantly holding the keys of death, hell, and the grave.

The world has discovered: There is no grave deep enough, no seal strong enough, no guard powerful enough, no stone heavy enough, to keep Christ in the grave. Our salvation was paid for through His death, burial, and resurrection. He has risen! Alleluia!

Tonight at the East Campus we will feature a moving concert in celebration of the Power of the Cross. Simultaneously @ 8:00 p.m., our West Campus will host a Good Friday Service centered on the Seven Last Sayings of Jesus and Holy Communion. Our aim at both campuses is to win people to Christ and set the stage for believers to have their faith reignited.

Seize the opportunity to invite family and friends alike to either one of these meetings. And, for this Easter weekend consider inviting someone to God’s house by making a phone call, sending an email, or kidnapping them.

They will hear about our amazing God in a way that is easily understood. At the same time, you will be encouraged in your faith through a celebrative environment designed to capture the mysteries of our faith.

Make sure you tell your guests that our dress is very casual and we have an astounding Children’s Church.

Come prepared to celebrate the risen Lord tonight and anyone of our eight weekend services. Yes, this Saturday we offer two services at the East Campus: one at 5:00 and the other at 7:00 p.m. On Sunday, we will have our four services in Montclair and two meetings in Rockaway.

It’s Good Friday! Rejoice because Resurrection Sunday is coming!

Watch for my blog on Monday, April 25th that will have powerful stories of what God did this weekend!
