Live Loved: Long Live the King

Psalm of the Day: Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29
Scripture of the Week: Matthew 27:11-54
Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share in his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you  and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Easter Egg Hunt
Join us, Saturday April 15 at 2PM at the Fellowship Hall for our annual Easter Egg Hunt.  We will also have stories and fun crafts.  Please invite any child you know to this great time of Christian fellowship.

Easter Service
We will have our Easter Service, April 16 at 9:30AM followed by sweet breakfast treats, coffee , juice and fellowship. Begin now inviting friends and family to this special service.

Easter Lilies
With the church renovation we will be putting only a couple of arrangements at the altar. Instead of purchasing a memorial lily please consider a monetary donation to go to missions.  A basket will be in the front of the church for your memorial contributions along with a way for you to list the loved ones you'd like to honor.

Lent Message Series
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on March 1st. Lent is the season that prepares us for Easter. Our Message Series during Lent will be “Live Loved.” We go through much of our day-to-day lives expressing what’s inside of us, whether we want to or not. Shouldn’t we be expressing Love, God’s Love? This series will help you grow in your faith and your love for God. Helping you to release the freedom of a whole and healed heart. It will help you navigate your interactions with the people in your life so they can see God’s love in and through you.
You wouldn't try to drive a car on an empty tank of fuel. You wouldn't try to vacuum your house without plugging into electricity. Your smartphone doesn't work when the battery is dead. Your glass doesn't quench your thirst if it's empty. So why would you try to live life without love? This Lent, discover how to Live Loved.

Easter Sunday
Easter Sunday is April 16th. Start getting ready now by beginning to invite friends to church. A personal invitation is the number one way that people get connected to a church. People need God’s love. Help them find it here as a part of the Clair Church family.
