From The Pastor
April begins with Easter Sunday. On April 1, we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For those of us who have surrendered our lives to that living Savior, there is not a higher or holier day to worship than Easter. Yes, we celebrate the resurrection every week, but there is something special about stopping to remember that He overcame death and hell and the grave for us.
Easter is also the perfect time to invite friends and family members to join us for worship. Many will accept that invitation on that day when they might not otherwise. Be faithful in inviting them. Many of them will come. All will hear the gospel.
On Sunday, April 15, we will have our third annual Celebration Sunday. All three local HBC campuses will worship together on the 7 Points campus. The Well Church - Huntsville will be involved by video. At 9 am, we will have breakfast in the CLC and then worship together at 10:15. If you have attended a Celebration Sunday before, you know what an amazing time of fellowship and worship they can be. Don’t miss the celebration.
Mission trip season has begun. For the next few months, mission teams will be going and coming and serving in many places and in many different ways. Please be praying for all of these teams as they take the gospel to places as close as Decatur and as far away as Botswana. If you would like information about how you can be involved, please stop by the global missions wall next to the Welcome Center. Information is located there about each of those mission opportunities. Check it out and jump in.
These are exciting days for the Highland family of churches and I am grateful to be part of all that God is doing. Let’s make the most of these days for God’s great glory.
Bro. John Brock
