Alive, Alive, Alive forevermore


These are the words of a familiar chorus heard around Easter. But, they are meaningless, unless we finish
the thought-My Jesus is alive! We celebrate the Living Christ
...Not just on Easter-we celebrate the Living Christ every time we gather to worship -lifting up the glorious name
of our Lord and Savior. Praying over Joys and Concerns, we remember that Jesus is alive praying for us, and
with us.
...Not just on Easter-we celebrate the Living Christ every time we spend time together around Gods Word. In Bible Studies. In Vacation Bible School. In Sunday School. We discover the living Christ as he comes alive to us in
the Bible.
...Not just on Easter-we celebrate the Living Christ every time we reach out to meet the needs of others. Through
special offerings (like joyful noise, Christmas Eve, etc.). Through providing materials needed for others-shoes for
Soles for Souls; health, layette, and birthing kits for many, and many other ways. We discover the living Christ as
we reach out to his children around the world.
But...what would this community miss if we were not here? I believe that the presence of Christ is more real, more
alive because you are here-living out your faith in meaningful ways. That is what the church is all about. May we
commit ourselves to following the Living Christ wherever he leads.
Whenever there is a specific financial need, you come through. Thank You. And thank you for allowing me to be
your pastor, and I look forward to the blessings God has in store for us-as we allow the Living Christ to live in
and through us!
~Pastor Cory
