It’s been an amazing week to serve as your campus pastor teaching a virtual session to our confirmation class, visiting with a Zoom small group studying Mark, in-home baptisms, a pre-marital course with many couples excited for their future, and planning and preparing for the launch of in-person worship on March 14 and our Egg-citing Easter Egg Hunt outdoor event on March 27. Easter is coming and we couldn’t be more excited for the hope it will bring!
Next Sunday, March 14, we resume in-person worship with two services, 9 and 11 am! This is exactly one year from the Sunday we suspended worship due to the pandemic. No reservations are needed for worship – we will have plenty of room, safely distanced, with masks required. But, if you could take a minute to fill out the in-person worship survey at cor.org/next it would help us prepare for these services.
Our Nursery will be available for children ages 2 and under. If you are comfortable coming back to in person worship, we’d love it if you could volunteer to serve as an usher or greeter. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know which service you prefer, the 9 or 11 am, as we begin welcoming everyone back to Resurrection West! Online, YouTube, and TV services will continue along with in-person services at all campuses.
We are still working on our plan for Easter weekend services but registration is now open for our Saturday, March 27, (2-5 pm) Egg-citing Egg Hunt. It’s all outdoors, so invite some friends to come with you and register here.
We are also excited to launch Upward Soccer! We have almost 60 kids already signed up, with practices and games held on our Resurrection West soccer fields, and we could use some more coaches and referees. David Robertson is coordinating this effort and would love to hear from you before the March 23 practices begin. Email him at email@example.com.
Finally, we hope you’ve been joining with the hundreds of others participating in our Lenten Study through the Gospel of Mark at cor.org/live on Wednesday nights. It will be my privilege to teach the final Wednesday during Holy Week. Thanks again to Pastor Chris and Lisa Holliday for the first two weeks of our Thursday Couples Conversation on the RezWest Facebook page. Hundreds are viewing and engaging the course. You can enjoy the first two weeks in the video archive now as Scharme and I prepare to teach the next two weeks on "Family, Past, Present, and Future" along with our final week on "Love and Intimacy."
Pastor Blake and Christie Walker are currently developing our next Thursday Facebook teaching series, where they'll be talking about parenting.
It's going to an amazing weekend of worship as we continue moving closer to the hope of Easter!
