This Easter Season brought about many activities but in the center of it was worship of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and reflection on His death and resurrection. We as a family and church attended the community Holy Week Services at noon each day. Our church co-hosted on Monday with another local church and helped to provide the lunch. Our youth did a wonderful job of helping to serve, we are so proud of them. The youth attended each service which was awesome. A few days they came over to our house afterwards for some fun. (They were on spring break that week) Then on Friday we had a "Destination Unknown" planned for them. We took them to Greensboro that afternoon to the mall and had a Scavenger hunt planned for them. It was a blast and extremely tiring! We thank the Lord for Pastor Ryan and Alicia who God has called to our church to work with the youth. We have seen some real growth in the hearts of our youth as well as numerically. It is an encouragement to see.
The Saturday before Easter we had the annual Easter Egg Hunt at church. We had over 25 children participating plus parents/grandparents. Amy, our children's worker, always does a wonderful job with this and shares the Gospel message with the children so they know the real reason for the holiday. At one point during the hunt I realized that this was Isaac's 2nd Easter!!! My how time goes by so quickly! He was introduced to alot of our church family at the last Easter Egg Hunt and his first Sunday in church was Easter Sunday last year! He had a good time and got 2 eggs which he was very content to hold and play with. Next he will be running around all over the place and we will be trying to keep up! (He is still not quite walking yet but He is so close!)
