Today is Daisy’s Little Red Wagon! At the contribution time we will invite all our children to fill up the wagon with the coins they have been collecting over the year. This collection is the first fruits of our Grace Offering which will be next Sunday, April 9. Our financial goal is $156,100, almost 8 times our weekly budget. Please be prayerful about how you can support the PACOC outreach ministries. For more details about the Grace Offering and information on our outreach ministries go to pacoc.net/go.
Speaking of Easter, we have available for you invitation cards that you can use to invite friends to our worship. Pick up a few and take the step to reach out to someone who needs to hear the good news!
We do normally have a large crowd for Easter, so we do ask our members to park in the outer lots or even on the grass (weather permitting) to allow our guests parking spaces. Also, move up front in the pews and fill them up so guests can easily find a seat.
Today I will continue through 1 Corinthians 15 focusing on the resurrection body. There are a lot of unknowns about the nature of that new body but Paul is confident that it will be unlike our perishable earthly bodies. It will be imperishable!
