#2- 3 people committing their lives to Christ this Sunday is always worth a celebration!!! RLC has recently partnered with godlife.com to bring to every new believer a guide to help them get a great start on their new life of faith. Click here to visit this resource. Also, let’s remember to pray for these new believers every day this week.
#3- I Decided to Stay. This past week’s message is by far my favorite of this series. This lesson is something that has been a huge catalyst in my life and continues to be something I learn fresh all the time. There are definitely times to leave but there are also times to STAY. We talked about asking God if there is an area in your life where you need to stay rather than go. Maybe it’s a dream you think is too hard, a relationship that’s in a difficult place, or maybe a job that seems to be going nowhere. The easy thing is to go, quit, or say goodbye. Is God speaking to you to Stay?
Here were the tweet-able moments:
- “Sometimes the greatest act of faith is faithfulness.”
- “Of course it’s hard. Welcome to the world of doing something awesome.”
- “If you knew it the hard part were almost over, would you stay.”
- “What story does God want you to tell? Where is He speaking to you to STAY?”
#4- Passion Week. This past Sunday was the kick-off of Passion Week. It’s called this because this was the last week Jesus spent before being crucified. There are many great devotions and Bible reading plans on YouVersion or other various places. I would encourage you to do a special devotion focusing on this special week. This is also a great week to take time out every day simply to say thank You to Jesus Christ for the cross, for forgiveness, and His acceptance in our lives.
#5- Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt Friday night beginning at 6:30pm. In the words of Toby Mac, “Ain’t no need to say what’s already been said.” This is going to be awesome. Check the RLC website for details.
#6- Easter Celebration 2013. At RLC, every weekend is a celebration of what Christ has done for us. This particular weekend though we want to take it to a whole new level. We want to celebrate the fact that Jesus isn’t in the grave, He truly is Alive. Be sure to arrive early to get a good seat and celebrate the Risen Savior at RLC March 31st at 9:30am and 11am.
This week is going to be awesome. We’re also in the middle of planning an exciting Summer as well. Great things are happening at RLC and the best is still yet to come. I look forward to seeing everyone at LifeGroup, AWANA, Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt, or Easter Celebration Sunday morning!
