Greetings in the name of our risen Saviour!
What a glorious week this is for all Christians everywhere around the world. We have good reason to celebrate the hope that we have because of Easter and what was accomplished for us on the cross. I hope you will take time to read the story in the last few chapters of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) and reflect on the significance of those events 2000 years later!
This will be the first year in recent memory that Stouffville Christian Church will not be hosting a Good Friday service. Many churches in town will be getting together Friday morning for shared services. You would be welcome at any one of these and we strongly encourage you to go!
Easter Sunday Service will be at the usual time of 11:00 a.m. at Stouffville Christian Church.
Keep our 175th anniversary plans in your prayers. We have many guests to host on the weekend of May 6th and 7th, including our own CECF conference and many local dignitaries, including mayor Altmann and others.
Other musicians and presenters will be participating in this celebration event. Pray that all comes together well and that God will be honoured and glorified through it all.
Please refer to your prayer sheet for April and remember to pray for the needs listed there throughout the month. Kindly add Al & Trudy Yetman to the list as Al is dealing with various procedures to control his cancer. It was so good to see them last Sunday!
Also add Joyce Green as she lost a family member who was especially close to her. May she know the comfort of God's presence and take strength in the hope of her faith at this time.
Thank you to Camilla for putting on such a fun Bingo Night again last week! We truly do get to see one another's true colours when we start competing for high stakes candies and chocolate bars!
Have a great Easter week and we'll look forward to being together on Easter Sunday!
