What a phenomenal Easter weekend we had. So many of you across both campuses volunteered in hundreds of different ways! Thank you!
I just received some great news from the offering this past weekend. More than $93,000 was given, and all of it will be dedicated to the building of homes for the homeless in Catacamas, Honduras and in the new Hickory Crossing development in inner-city Dallas (a CitySquare development). This is a beautiful expression of providing hope for others on difficult roads in life.
Speaking of which, if you missed the message this past weekend I do hope you’ll take a few minutes and watch/listen to “Hope For The Road” this week!
Easter is more than a day on a calendar. It’s a lifestyle. And it has everything to do with “having a faith that works.” This coming weekend, we kick off our study of the book of James to consider what it means to “have a faith that works” in today’s world. This will be a great series to invite someone to engage in.
If you’ve got a particular Bible that you love, bring it along with something to take notes. We’ll walk verse-by-verse over the next several weeks through James – taking the Word and then walking it out in our lives by the grace and strength of God.
There’s no better way to respond to Easter than by surrendering our lives to Jesus. After all, even death has surrendered to Him.
Grace and Peace,
See You This Weekend!
