This Week’s Need to Know – 04/13/2017

“Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but has risen.” excerpts from Luke 24:5-6

This Sunday, we celebrate the Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  I hope you will invite your friends and neighbors to join us at the Castanea Fire Company Picnic Grounds at 10:00 AM, as we worship and celebrate together.

Make sure your share the above video with your friends on social media and invite them to join us this Sunday!

If you would like to have your picture updated in the church directory, Mike Rodo will be taking photos at the Easter Service this Sunday.

Your Help Is Needed
Please come out and help us set up for this weekend’s service.  We could use your help this evening (4/13) with loading up chairs to take over to the picnic grounds.  If you can help, please meet at Big Woods at 6:00 PM.

Good Friday Service
You’re invited to a special Good Friday service hosted at the Calvary Baptist Church in Jersey Shore tomorrow evening at 7:00 o’clock.  There will be several churches represented in attendance.  Our very own Sue Ulmer will be playing the piano for the choir during this service.

There will be a baptism service at Cedar Heights Brethren in Christ Church immediately following the second service on Sunday, April 23.  If you are interested in being baptized, please fill out the tear-off portion of your bulletin and place it in the offering plate or contact the church office.

Ministry Around the World
It was a joy to celebrate God’s working through friends of Big Woods.  On Sunday, Rut Chamale shared how God is working in The Learning Center at Cruz Blanca, Guatemala.  If you missed her presentation in Sunday school, you can watch it here.

On Tuesday, Damodar Sharma shared with the LHU New Life group and several others from Big Woods how God is working in India, and many are responding to the Gospel and being discipled.  We rejoice that whether it be Lock Haven, Cruz Blanca, or all the way around the world in India, the Gospel is being preached and lives are being changed for eternity!  Thanks to all who came out on Tuesday night to listen to Damodar.
