By April 12, 2017 November 19th, 2019 Tom's Weekly Email

To my Grove family,

Our Easter Weekend
Pastor Daniel Bishop will be speaking at all the Easter services this year and his title is, “The Moment Everything Changed”. If you will read Matthew 27:47-54 and Luke 24:1-8 you will be ready for this very special Easter message. We have many services happening this Easter weekend so I am listing their times one more time.  Our Good Friday services are Friday, April 14, at 5:00 p.m. (deaf interpretation) and 7:00 p.m. (no Children’s programming). Our Easter services are Saturday, April 15, at 5:00 p.m., andSunday, April 16, at 7:00 a.m. (outdoor service so bring your own chairs; no Children’s programming), 9:00 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. (Spanish Service in C-100). Deaf interpretation will be at all Easter services. Remember as we approach Easter weekend to be inviting friends and family who need to hear the good news of Jesus. After Easter on April 22/23, we will be starting a new four-week sermon series called, “The Pursuit of Happiness”.

Easter Egg Hunt
After the 7 a.m. service on Sunday, April 16, there will be 1,200 Easter eggs around the grass area for the kids to go find. In each egg will be a little treat. We want there to be plenty for all so please limit your child to a five-egg maximum. Parents, we’ll need your help by allowing the little ones (5 and under) to have a five-minute head start then the older ones can join in. This should be a fun experience for the kids, but parents feel free to go egg hunting as well (one-egg maximum for parents). Please enjoy.

Baptisms are available to anyone interested this Easter weekend. They will happen after the 5 p.m. Saturday service and after the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.Sunday services. Send interested people to the Gym so they can meet with a pastor before getting baptized. As usual, we will be giving baptism t-shirts to everyone being baptized. For those people who did not plan to do this in advance and therefore didn’t bring a change of clothes, we’ll loan them a pair of shorts and a towel to be returned after their baptism.
