Title: Among Jesus’ Last Words
John 19:25-27, Luke 24:50-53, Mark 16-19-20
Welcome to the Lord’s House. This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day and we remember the Ascension of Jesus forty days after His resurrection. We do both as expressions and offerings of worship to our God. May He be highly praised!
I pray that the spirit of God will place upon all members the desire and determination to fully participate in all the regular and special occasions of celebration which are ours throughout the course of this year 2018. In this calendar period we pay special attention to some of the manifestations of God’s favor throughout our 120 years as the White Rock Church family. How good and glorious God has been. Next Sunday, Women’s Day, we highlight “The Daughter of Zelophehad” and follow throughout the months with activities distinguished by the numbers 40/50/60/120.
As we celebrate what God has done let us all resolve to respond to the need we have to give this year an extra $100,000 to underwrite needed building repairs and the need to maintain fiscal solvency and health. As Pastor, I am pledging at least $10,000 beyond regular tithes to be contributed on Women’s Day, Men’s Day and Church Anniversary Sunday. God will bless us with the ability to exceed our goal if and when we give to Him NOTHING LESS than our BEST. “May God’s grace and peace be multiplied unto you . . .”
Joy! We are one in the Lord.
