From the Pastor
The Three Days!
The momentous three days began yesterday with Holy Thursday. The services of these days are considered to be a single whole. There is no benediction until Easter Sunday when the Triduum (Three Days) is over. We walk with Christ from His new testament to His arrest by wicked men, His crucifixion, entombment, and glorious resurrection. These are the three most important days in the history of the world, because they are the days when our salvation was accomplished. Your hearts will burn within you when you hear of your salvation accomplished in the suffering, death, and resurrection of God's Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Bring your friends and family to experience this. It's an amazing Three Days!
