CBCGL EM Update 04/02/2021

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,  


            Today is Good Friday. Throughout the passion week, we can see Jesus heading towards the end. He finished well, not cursing those who cursed him, not calling out false witnesses, but submitting to the will of the Father. On Good Friday, we remember the sacrifice that Christ made, the sacrifice He was and the sacrifice He perfected. Tonight, we focus on the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Join us via the Friday Night Bible Study Zoom Link @ 7:30 pm (Link below). 

Crossway put together a number of videos back in 2014. There is a video for each day from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday. I don’t know if you got a chance to watch the videos from last week. But I’ve included Good Friday – Easter Sunday for you here.  

            As you watch, listen, learn – consider not only what Christ did but why he did it.

            The Combined Easter Service sign-up filled up in less than a day! If you didn’t get a chance to sign-up for the Service, please join us online via the normal English links facebook or youtube. The COVID Taskforce has asked that we tell you not to show up in person if you didn’t sign-up. For those who did sign-up, please follow the COVID-19 protocols set in place by the COVID-19 waiver, particularly symptom checking, mask wearing and social distancing. 

            Finally, I really do want to get to know you. Please sign-up to meet with my wife Angie and me, just for the purpose of sharing life and better understanding of each other. We want to get to know you! To do that, I’ve put together a calendar where you can sign up. It lists out the times in the coming months and times that we have available. I have made it editable so you can claim a spot or time. (You may need to copy this link and paste it into your browser.)  

We have been doing these meetings online. In the coming months, we hope to do these meetings in person (post vaccination). If you don’t want to edit the calendar, feel free to send me an e-mail to set up a time to meet! We look forward to talking with you and sharing life together through conversation.
