A Note From Dan

Dan HarrisonIt is hard to believe that Spring is already here. This year is passing so quickly. Spring is my favorite time of the year. Growing up in Florida it was a reminder that it would soon be warm enough to swim and more importantly school would soon be out for the summer. Now as a gardener it is a time to plant. I love to have things growing in my yard and garden. As I drive through the Forest Hills neighborhood there are many reminders of Spring. The dogwoods and the azaleas are beautiful and it is a reminder to us that Spring is here. Spring is also a reminder that Easter is just around the corner. For Christians, this is a time to reflect on what God has done for us through the person of Jesus Christ. Holy Week is a time when I reflect on the activities leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. I challenge you during this next week to follow in your quiet time the events that led up to the cross. Several years ago, the popular author Max Lucado wrote a book entitled “And the Angels Were Silent.” This book is about the events leading up to the cross. Whatever you do make Christ your focus during this next week, and remember to display your cross in your yard.

This Saturday is the youth choir community yard sale to help raise money for their choir tour and mission trip. Also this Saturday is the Men’s Ministry, “Bill Morgan-Father/ Son/Daughter/Friend Fishing Day” at the Larry Kennedy’s hide away. You won’t want to miss either of these church events!

Don’t miss the opportunity to Worship this Sunday as we celebrate Palm Sunday.
