Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! We had a great day worshipping yesterday! It was wonderful to hear from Dave Germann the special, “Glorious Day.” Also, his testimony was so encouraging about how one of East Madison’s early members who is now with the Lord, Peggy Blum, witnessed to him as a young man and planted the seeds of the gospel in his life. As we worshipped through Scripture readings, songs, and the proclamation of God’s Word, we thought about the triumphal entry of Jesus. We considered that we, along with believers from every age, need to boldly proclaim Jesus as King, Savior and Lord. There will be those who will seek to silence us by mockery, intimidation, economic pressures, and, sometimes, even persecution. We must pray for boldness so that these things would never stop us in proclaiming Jesus as King, Savior and Lord to our generation.
We will be having a Good Friday service this Friday evening, April 2 at 6:30 PM. We will be gathering physically and virtually. I will send out the worship order and link for this later this week.
We are looking forward to celebrating Resurrection Sunday by seeing George Linde and Laurie Skille confess their faith through believers’ baptism this Easter Sunday, April 4. What a great way to proclaim the truth of Jesus’ resurrection!
We will be beginning a new virtual Bible Study of the book of Galatians on Wednesday, April 7 at 6:30 PM. If you did not join us for the last virtual study and would like to be part of this study, let me know so I can add you to the email list to send you the weekly link.
We will have our annual business meeting on Sunday April 11 right after out morning worship. We will provide a zoom link for all who want to join us virtually on that day so we can receive your feedback.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
