THIS WEEK’S TEXT:  Exodus 9-10A Plague of Problems | God Will Do Whatever is Necessary to Get Your Attention (Part 2)
Taught By: Pastor Tim

We will be hosting a Community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4, from 10:00 AM to noon.  The purpose is to reach out to our community to build relationships that will lead to opportunities to show them the love of Jesus and to find opportunities to share the Gospel with our words and life.  You can be involved by volunteering (click here to sign up) or by helping provide some of the supplies we need.  We need about a dozen people to help register families, guide kids to their designated areas, and be a friendly presence to the many guests from our community that will be there.  We also need the following items:

  • Individually wrapped candy (we need enough to fill 7,000 eggs)
  • Prize donations – we’ll be doing a prize drawing for those in attendance.  We hope to have some bigger items like scooters, or even bikes.  However, we will gladly take themed baskets (example: outdoor fun basket with chalk, bubbles, sand toys, etc.).  If it is laid on your heart to donate anything like this, it would be greatly appreciated.  Feel free to team up with your family, your home group, or other friends from the body to put a basket together.

Finally, please pray that we will continue to develop relationships with people in our community and that these relationships would ultimately lead to more people coming to know Jesus as their Savior.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jenn BraunJill Sims, or Melissa Varholak.

Make plans now to attend a community wide Good Friday service (April 10, 7PM) hosted here at Big Woods Bible Church.  Pastor Tim will be partnering with Pastor Doug Packard (FBC Lock Haven) as well as Pastor Josh Grimes (The Common Place Church) to bring a special message focused on Jesus’ Passion that evening.  Invite someone to join you for this special service.  Communion will be served at this service as well.  Be sure to share our Facebook Event page as well as mark that you will be attending!

We’re honored to host Matt & Rebekah Karchner on Sunday, April 5, during the Sunday school hour.  Matt will be sharing his testimony of how God saved him out of a homosexual lifestyle and has redeemed him to now share his powerful testimony of a life transformed by the Gospel.  Join us as we celebrate God’s goodness in Matt and Rebekah’s life and hear how they are ministering to people in the LGBTQ+ lifestyle in Cambodia.
