Egg Hunt!

We have an egg hunt every Easter as the egg is a historical way to look at life and rebirth. As Christians new life is found in the empty tomb and with Jesus’ Resurrection. Each of us find new life in the waters of our own baptism where we were born again! 

 

As you travel throughout our Easter Drive Thru, see how many EGGS you can find. Let Shelly know at the end how many you found for a special treat!

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-9),
when palm branches were placed in his path as it was foretold that the nation of Judah would line the street leading up to the entrance of the Temple of God at the beginning of Passover every year. (Zec 9:9) spoke of how the Savior then would ride in on an unladen donkey. The palm branches and donkey were symbols of peace for the nation and not war.

Washing of Disciples Feet

Washing of disciples feet. In the Gospel of John – Jesus washes the feet of the disciples. As the group of men enter the room Jesus stops Peter and tells him that He needs to wash his feet. Jesus does this to show how He becomes our servant to teach us how we are called to love one another and be servants to each other. We find our place in the kingdom when we become willing to serve with humility.

The Last Supper

Jesus sits down to have a meal with His disciples. They gather and celebrate a traditional Seder meal as they Jews have been doing since Moses led them out of Egypt and through the desert. A Passover lamb was sacrificed for the sins of the people. Jesus reveals that he is God’s lamb that takes away the sins of the world. He provides his own body and blood to be sacrificed for the forgiveness of our sins. We remember Jesus every time we celebrate the Lord’s supper. We receive in with and under the bread and wine His very body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins.

The Cross of Calvary

Jesus was convicted by the people who demanded his crucifixion. Jesus was whipped, crowned with a strand of thorns and forced to carry his own cross to the hill of Calvary. There he was nailed to the cross and crucified as his own mother watched. Jesus cried out from the cross “It is finished…” and died. What was finished? The atonement of humanity was finished. We stole from the tree of life through the actions of Adam and Eve. Jesus lived the only life without sin and was sacrificed and died for us. His life was an exchange for ours. We are saved by his grace and mercy and his willingness to die freely for you and me.

Flower Cross

Confession and Absolution –
We ask that you honestly take a moment in silence and go to God and confess your sins. In 1st John 1:9-10 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is
faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. God freely went to the cross so that your sins are forgiven in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

Communion

We receive the True Body and Blood of our savior for the forgiveness of our sins. For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.

Gifts and Tithes

We offer our gifts to God after we have received his body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins. We are Thankful for God for HE provides all that we have in our lives. We return portion of our blessings. This is first mentioned 5000 years ago in the book of Genesis 14:18-20 After Abram’s return from his great victory at the hand of God over Chedolamar Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. As he was a priest of God, Most High. And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
