“Marching Orders”


I love the month of April!


My wife’s birthday, my sister’s birthday, my daughter Molly-Catherine’s birthday, March Madness comes to a maddening finish! Go Tar Heels!, and the Master’s Golf Tournament held in my old stomping ground of Augusta, Georgia!


Don’t forget! April is also National Safe Digging Month, National Canine Fitness Month, National Soft Pretzel Month, National Fresh Celery Month and National Garden Month.


Speaking of National Garden Month, the women who were at the empty tomb on that first resurrection Sunday morning ran into Jesus and thought he was the “Gardener!”


That’s right – April is also, National, International and Universe Resurrection Month!! In fact, every day, every week and every month is Resurrection Day!


I love the month of April!


Easter Sunday is April 16
th this year, which means Palm Sunday is April 9th

Which also means….

Maundy Thursday is April 13
(service at 7:00 pm)
Good Friday is April 14
 (services at 12 noon and 7:00 pm)


To experience the full impact of the resurrection please make plans to attend the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday service…Your overall experience of Easter will increase one hundredfold…


I love the month of April!

On Easter Sunday we will receive our “Marching Orders” from the Master Gardener on how we are to live out our lives as individuals and corporately as a church!


The orders are simple…

Come, find out what they are…

And let’s march together arm in arm, step by step to share the love, the grace, the mercy and the power of the risen Lord Jesus!


Grace and peace!

Laugh often and Fear not!



Ps – I don’t know if I mentioned this or not, but “I love the month of April!!”
