For the Month of March, “Life-Changing Moments” in Worship
Beginning on Sunday, March 3 as we gather around the table in the upper room First Baptist and Elevation Ministries will be joining Christ on his journey to the cross throughout the month of March. The stage area will feature prominently a table on March 3 in both services of worship – First Service at 9:15 and Elevation at 11:00 – and we will be talking about the 13 people who gathered around that table on that fateful Passover night. “Is It I?” is the focus of the sermon as the disciples considered the prediction of Jesus about who would betray him…and who would deny him.
The following Sundays we will go with Jesus to the Garden of Gethsemane and witness his passionate prayers, his own struggle with total submission to the will of God, and ultimately his betrayal and arrest. Each week will lead us closer and closer to the Easter Experience that the congregations will celebrate on Easter Sunday, March 31, in a joint worship time at 11:00 am. That service will feature drama, video, music, and the spoken word as we see, hear, experience and realize the power of life that exploded from the grave on that great Resurrection Day.
March will be a great month to bring family members, friends, and the “missing-in-action” as we all reconnect with the Christ of God who has brought life and life abundant for ever more.
