April Newsletter *|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|* News and Events at The Journey South County View this email in your browser Journey South County, Spring has finally arrived. The flowers are beginning to bloom and the grass is getting greener. I am starting to see my neighbors working in their yards and taking walks around the neighborhood. It’s always a joy for me to catch up with my neighbors after a long winter season. I want to encourage you to consider inviting your neighbors (friends and family as well) to one of the events in this newsletter. Let me highlight a few, but take a moment to read through the entire newsletter. There is our annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 13. Invite the children in your neighborhood! We will “Gather at the Cross” on Good Friday, April 19, with two local churches. We hope to be a witness to the community about our unity in Christ. Do you have a neighbor who is skeptical because of church division? Maybe an invitation will break down that barrier. Easter service on April 11 starts at 10 a.m. I encourage you to come early for photo booth pictures and to welcome our guests! Be willing to give up your seat if we are packed out. You might be surprised how open your neighbors would be to coming on Easter if you invited them. I will be teaching a four-week class starting Monday, April 29, called “The Bible: Nuts and Bolts.” Do your neighbors ever pose questions to you about the Bible? I hope you will attend and bring a neighbor friend as well. Grace and peace, Jason P.S. If you don’t have lunch plans on Easter Sunday, I want to invite you over to our home after the service. Details are below! EASTER SUNDAY LUNCH If you don’t have plans for Easter lunch after the service, please come have lunch at our house! Email us and let us know you plan to come so we can work out the details. We’re going to do the meal potluck style, so if you have a favorite dish, you can share it with us. The more, the merrier!
