Holy Week 2020

 

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, Easter joy and peace to you all!   

For many of us, 2020 has been a time of uncertainty. We are under attack by COVID-19 and we are all a little anxious. As we “shelter in place” and maintain “social distancing”, we may feel scared and alone. This year we will not be able to gather together at Good Shepherd and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus as we normally do. This year Easter may seem a lot different than Easter celebrations of years past and yet, our Easter celebration this year may be more like the very first Resurrection Day!

2000 years ago at the dawn of the first Easter. The disciples were scared and they felt all alone.  They were anxious and filled with sorrow because they had seen their Master Jesus put to death and then placed in a tomb. The people were filled with fear and there was little hope. Into this darkness, the Risen Christ shared His Light!

Today, two thousand years after THE RESURRECTION, we have been called into the light of Christ! By God’s grace you can be filled with the light and love of Jesus that brings hope and salvation! May Jesus’ victory over death give you victory in your life today!  

We won’t gather in a building this year, but we will gather around the love of Jesus Christ! I welcome you to join with your Good Shepherd family for our Easter celebration ONLINE on Sunday April 12 at 10:00 AM. Please go to our Good Shepherd Church and School Facebook Page or subscribe to our YouTube Channel, our services are also available on our webpage.

Thank you for your prayers and gracious support of our ministry.   Please prayerfully consider how you can continue to faithfully support our Good Shepherd ministry through your regular offerings and tithe commitments.

Our Easter celebration may look a little different this year but make no doubt, we WILL celebrate the victory of Jesus Christ over sin, death and the Devil!  I look forward to the day when we are all together in God’s house here at Good Shepherd, but in the meantime stay healthy and be safe!  We will get through this together with Jesus!

May your Easter season be a celebration filled with the love of Jesus Christ!  

I wish you a HAPPY, BLESSED and JOYOUS EASTER! 

Christ IS risen!  He IS risen indeed!  Alleluia!

Pastor Steve Maske            

“Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. 
­You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy!”  John 16:20
