Heads Up

We have all become familiar with severe weather alerts. Accurate long distance forecast make it possible to prepare better. I have The Weather Channel App on my smart phone like many others. Right now there is a wind advisory banner running across the top: From mid-day until noon, strong winds gusting up to 35 to 45 mph.

Hats, hairdos, and trashcan lids be warned; just saying. It is nice to be alerted by your smart phone device when data usage is nearing maximum availability or when favorite products are going on sale. If you are traveling, headline news warns of traffic slowdowns and detours. Technology gives us the heads up on lots of practical and helpful information.

In a similar way I have found the (YouVersion) Bible App very helpful. I read a little bit every day with a reading plan that takes me through the entire Bible in one year. You might also find this App a favorite on your smart phone device.

Today, as I was thinking of Easter weekend final preparations at Journey this verse really popped out at me. “Our God is a God who saves! The Sovereign LORD rescues us from death.” Psalm 68:20 NIV

At Journey Easter weekend, we are launching a new five-week series, Downside Up. In this series we’ll look at the Biblical perspective compared alongside our cultural view. This weekend, because it is Easter we describe that death, from God’s perspective, is really life. God will guide us on how to flip things around to His viewpoint. It may sound really obvious but Easter really does change everything.

Maybe you have been attending church services in a traditional church all your life, but still are not clear what you believe? Or possibly you just don’t understand what all the noise is about with another religious holiday. Got Doubts? It’s OK to not be OK. Give Easter services somewhere another chance.

At Journey Easter weekend, we would love to greet you and welcome you regardless of what level of faith you might have. You will find many other people just like you. You’ll meet people who did not arrive at faith in Jesus as a straight-line decision. We’re all in this this together. We like to say, People Matter Most.

What can you expect when you arrive? That is a good question. Let me give you a heads up. Our audience is casual in dress, even at Easter. This is not a place you have to stress about your Easter clothing. Come, as you are works well. I will have jeans and button down shirt. If you like to be a little dressier and plan for something special for worship that is great also.

We are making final plans for guests to join us for Easter. We hope to see you in one of our weekend services. Saturday @ 6pm. Sunday @ 10:30am.
