Easter Sunday 2017

Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!    He is Risen indeed!  Alleluia!  In the darkest moments of our lives, when fear and despair overwhelm us and  death drains us of all life and hope, an angel descends and rolls back the stone of doubt and despair.  When believing does not come easy and our fears outweigh our belief,  we hear the words:  “He is not here.  He is Risen!”  Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!  He is Risen indeed!  Alleluia!

GLAMA’s Palm Sunday March on Lexington

Tell the City of Lexington, Christ is coming!  This is the day the Lord has made!  We will rejoice and be glad in it.  Hosanna!  Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord.  Hosanna in the highest!

Today’s Palm Sunday Celebration was planned by the Greater Lexington Area Ministerial Association.  We are grateful to the City of Lexington, Davidson County Government, and the Lexington Police Department for their assistance.  Thank you to the Alive Praise Band for sharing their gifts with us.  Thank you to all the churches who enrich this community with love and grace and who made this celebration possible.

Palm Sunday

Hosanna, Christ enters our lives!  Blessings are here, yet haunting truths lurk in the shadows.  Death comes even to the most innocent and loving of humanity.  Celebration and sorrow intermingle in our world.

Associate Pastor Affirmation

A historic day of Celebration and Calling, March 19, 2017 at First Baptist Church, Lexington, NC  USA.  Simply wonderful, inspiring and providential.

The Christian life is not so much a destination as a journey. True worship is found when we experience God’s providence and faithfulness along the way. March 19th is a celebration of praise and joy as we affirm God’s leadership in our search for an Associate Minister. We welcome Meagan Smith as we join hands together in the great quest of building the Kingdom as we worship God, love each other, and serve the world.  Bonus:  It was a M&M Sunday!

Advent: Simply Beautiful!

“The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before…. What is possible is to not see it, to miss it, to turn just as it brushes past you.  So stay.  Sit. Linger. Tarry. Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder. There will be time enough for running. For rushing. Wait. Something is on the horizon.”  –Jan L. Richardson
