Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor

There Arose a Division Because of Him

John 7:40-52

Word From the Pastor

Given the dysfunctional moral nature of humankind, ugly divisions in society are persistent, however mindless. Let us not be naïvely idealistic, but realistic about the way life is on this planet, always striving and praying that by God’s grace and wisdom that we might regularly land in those spaces agreeable to Christ and the truth.

Ministry Spotlight

Children’s Easter Celebration

Easter Celebration

At Lake, our free children’s Easter Celebration offers us the opportunity to share the story of Christ’s final week before his crucifixion and resurrection, along with the gospel message, in a tangible and memorable way.

Children will make an edible empty tomb and an Easter tree with symbols and Scripture commemorating the story of what Jesus did for us on the cross.

They will hear the Easter story in a child friendly way and take home a book to remember Resurrection Day and the opportunity for new life in Christ.

We would love to have you bring your friends and family to this special event!

Saturday, April 8th from 10–11:30 AM in the Great Room for children PreK to 5th grade. One adult per family required.

Hope to see you there!
