Happy Easter to everyone! Today is Good Friday; many will be planting gardens and flowers. The dogwoods are beautiful and have really bloomed out. Hopefully all the cold weather is gone. I’m ready for warm days!
Providence will have Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. on the hill in the cemetery behind the church. Afterwards we will have donuts, coffee and juice in the fellowship hall. All are welcome! We will have Sunday school at 10 with preaching to follow. Our life groups will not meet.
Monday is TAX DAY! Usually, it would be today, Friday, April 15. But it’s on Monday, April 18, this year because the IRS District of Columbia offices will be closed that day in observance of the locally recognized holiday, Emancipation Day. For the last couple of years, there have been extensions because of COVID-19 so it’s good for it to be back to a more normal schedule.
The Historical Society will meet on Sunday, April 24, at 2 p.m. at Twenty Two & Crew in Rockford. Ronnie Joiner, our vice president, will present the program. Ronnie is a fountain of knowledge on Coosa County and always has an interesting topic to share. You don’t have to be a member to attend, but we welcome anyone interested in joining. We will be discussing plans for our fiftieth anniversary and other items. Refreshments are furnished by the members.
This Sunday we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Christ willingly died on the cross to save every person who has and who will ever live. What a powerful story! While we celebrate His birth at Christmas, His death, burial and resurrection offer us the promise of eternal life. He went from being heralded as a king to being ridiculed. However, His brutal crucifixion was necessary for the ending of the story, His resurrection.
John 11:25-26 reads, “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?’”
That is a question that we need to answer in order to be saved. We can’t be good enough on our own; we must believe in Him. Not by works or deeds or being good, but only believing that Jesus is the savior and died in order to be resurrected to give us eternal life.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, and others have family that are having health issues. Please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs.
Until next week, take care and be joyful!
