A Message from Pastor Bruce

Pr. Bruce Wilder
Senior Pastor

Dear Friends in Christ:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

This month we will celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord. Once again we will commemorate the world changing events of that Holy Week which culminated on Good Friday. Our Easter joy reminds us that Jesus was victorious over sin, death and the grave…and is alive.

 

I’m old enough to remember the “God is dead” movement of my youth. At the center of that movement were self-important men who believed their pronouncements and cerebral powers were greater than God. A few even called themselves “Christian atheists.” As always, that movement died. Mortal men and women cannot write or think God out of existence…no more than Pontius Pilate could keep Jesus’ body in the tomb with Roman soldiers standing guard and the authority of his royal seal.

The Apostle Paul was correct and reminds every generation of this truth when he wrote:

“God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.”

-First Corinthians 1:25

 

On Easter weekend, Pastor Watts will be proclaiming the Gospel of life through Christ’s resurrection. On the following weekend, I will be preaching on what the resurrection of Jesus means for our daily discipleship and mission together.

 

If you worship in person in our sanctuary, then please invite a friend or neighbor to join you. If you are still worshipping at home, then let your friends know how to watch our live broadcasts.

 

God bless you with His peace and love.

Your brother in Christ,

Dr. W. Bruce Wilder

Senior Pastor
