From the Cross to the Promise: April 2 & 3

As it has been done for several years, Sis. Smith and her Drama Team are preparing a dramatic production of the Easter story to offer and minister to the community about the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus. Last year, they strayed from the biblical Easter story with The Fire Still Falls and presented the historical twentieth-century story of Pentecost in America. This year, the play will be the biblical account of Jesus’ life, but will entail the story of the crucifixion to the day of Pentecost.

The plot revolves around Peter (played by Frank Forsythe) and his denial of Christ, but also follows the other disciples and their decisions of what they will do with their lives.

Mark Kickbush, who is co-directing the play with Sis. Smith, was involved in arranging and changing the script.

“Because the focus is on the day of Pentecost, it is similar in many ways to The Fire Still Falls. There is an effort to draw the audience into the worship aspect of Pentecost.”

Mark helped Sis. Smith in re-writing several of the scenes, from the crucifixion to the tomb scene, but he says they worked very hard to keep it as scriptural as possible.

All involved have put a tremendous amount of time and work into weekly practices and a quality production, as is always the case, can be expected.

Performances will be on Friday and Saturday, April 2 and 3, at 7:00 each night.

"Shaping Our Heritage: Growing Morally Strong Kids" by Tim Daugherty

Pslam 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

1.  Nurturing strong growth takes time: Must invest the time.
2.  Proper prepartion will guarentee strong growth: Do you have a plan?
3.  Proper growth takes pruning and shaping of the tree: Shape the habits and character you desire in your child.
4.  Live the life before them.
5.  Shaping your heritage: Studies show we can affect 7 generations after us.

Bro. Daugherty taught this message Wednesday night.  If you missed it make sure you get a CD!
