An Easter Glow!

The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed! The Easter message reaches a crescendo at the gravesite of every Christian. It is there that loved ones remember Jesus’ promise: “Because I live, you also will live!” The Bible says that if only for this life we have hope in Christ we are to be pitied more than all people! If Christianity only has value to make us warm and fuzzy in our everyday life, then Christianity is a waste of time. You can get that same feeling doing lots of things that have nothing to do with Christ!

No, the value of the Christian faith is eternal! The Christian faith gives us peace and joy, hope and comfort every day.  But it does so much more for us!  It allows us to always look forward in life to

better days to come – no matter how we are feeling or what is going on in our lives! In the Bible we hear about a nameless woman – only known as “Lot’s wife”  –  who had such a tough time leaving all the good things of life behind her. She longed to live life with a rear-view mirror. And, because of that, she died becoming a pillar of salt.  You

can read the story in Genesis 19 especially verse 26.   The real value of Christianity is that Easter assures us that God has forgiven our sins and because of that death has been conquered and everlasting life is a reality for the child of God!

During the 40 days after Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday, he showed himself alive bodily to many believers living in and around Jerusalem so that God’s church might have many witnesses who

could testify to the facts that Jesus had died and has risen again! Then, on the 40th day, Jesus ascended into heaven. The Bible tells us that he did so in order that he might be “seated at (God’s) right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in

every way” (Ep 1:20-23). So on Thursday, May 21st, the Christian Church celebrates the Festival of the Ascension.


Because Jesus rules over all things, we know that we are safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This experience has taught all of us that we have little control over so many things that are going on

in our lives. What a comfort it is for us to know that our Lord Jesus is in charge! He is using this pandemic for the good of his church in some way, somehow. When we get through it whether in good health or in the glory of heaven, we will have reasons to praise Him for his loving care over us all. Yes, my friends, Easter has changed everything! We have a bright and prosperous future by faith in Jesus Christ.

In Christ,
Pastor Olson

Bible Information Class

We all want answers to life’s biggest questions. But the process for finding them often seems intimidating. Where do I even start? How do I read the Bible? Will I even understand it? 




We are excited to serve you and your child.  Your child will pursue Georgia’s preschool standards while learning to socialize with other children.  These academic and behavioral skills will prepare your child for all-day Kindergarten.
