Easter worship and a big feast: You are invited!
(Tim) All the people of Church of the Good Shepherd invite those of you within driving distance of Bloomington (who are not a part of a Bible-believing church) to come and join us for worship tomorrow morning.
It's Easter--the day of greatest joy in the Christian year--and it would make our day even more joyful if you would join us for worship and a real big feast set to start at Noon. In fact, if you can't make it for worship and you'd like to come just for the feasting, do it! We'd love to have you. Don't bother bringing anything--there's more than enough already and you and your family or friends won't go hungry. We promise.
If you're curious what the feel of worship is here, tomorrow's service will begin with the traditional Easter greeting, then we'll sing "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today." We'll confess our faith in the words of the Nicene Creed, sing "Crown Him with Many Crowns" and "Because He Lives."
There will be two Scripture readings from 1Corinthians 15 and Matthew 28 as well as a shorter sermon for children and Bob Dylan's "In The Garden" (from his Saved CD.) The main Bible preaching/sermon will be on the glory of Jesus Christ and it will be titled, "God Highly Exalted Him" from Philippians 2. Afterwards, worship will come to an end with "We Will Dance" and, just prior to the feast, a congregational sing-along of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus...
Worship will begin at 10:30 AM here across from Karst Farm Park on Endwright Road. (Take Highway 45 west from the Super Walmart, turn right about a mile west on 45, at Airport Road, then another quick right onto Endwright Road. You'll see the church up about a quarter mile on your right, almost across the road from Karst Farm Park.
Don't worry about what you wear or the car you drive. We're happy for you to show up Sunday looking like you looked when you were out shopping on Saturday. We're regular people. But do come ready to repent and put your hope and trust in Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
