Glorious, Indescribable Joy

 

Happy Easter Everyone!

Into this Easter season we are facing the need for more joy than ever before, and it is for times just like these that people like the apostle Peter can be a blessing to us.  We’ll read from the account of the first Christian sermon (which he preached) in Acts 2:14a, 36-41, and we’ll read from his first letter, 1 Peter 1:3-9.  How in the world can we have what he calls “glorious, indescribable joy” when the world is so chaotic and, well, un-joyous?  Well, the secret lies right where it should – in Easter.  Let’s open our hearts, our minds, and our Bibles as we worship on Sunday morning!

Since we’ll be worshipping online this Sunday, we thought it would be helpful to have links to all our content for this week in one place.

Sunday’s Service—if you log in to your Google/YouTube account about 10-15 minutes early, you will be able to easily access the chat and fellowship through the YouTube premier page both before and during the service. Find the premier page on our YouTube channel at: 4/19/20 Online Service.  The premier page will be active from the moment the video is uploaded, so you can practice any time this weekend!

We have introductions to both our SPKidz Church and iClub lessons on our YouTube channel. After you watch the introductions to the lesson, be sure to download the packet with discussion questions and activities to do at home!

We will also have a special lesson and learning for our iClub at 10:00 on Sundays, just as we would if we were together!  You will be able to access this through Zoom, which is an online conferencing tool. Contact Kraig by email for directions on how to access this.
