FIFTHR.I.P.  (Respond in Prayer)

Dear God,
Thank you so much for coming to earth and living a life here that modeled how we should live, and then enduring such suffering and pain for us – to pay the price for our sin, so that we might have forgiveness for our sins. You love us so much, even when we donʼt deserve it! Thank you for welcoming those today into your family who accepted you as their Savior and Friend for the first time. For all of us, help us to live for you, every day, in every way, even when its hard.
We love you Jesus!

In Jesus Name, AMEN!

Below is our THEME VERSE for the Month, work on memorizing it!

BONUS VIDEO: Below is the Resurrection Story actied out with Pastor Karl toys - but using the actual text of the Bible from all three Gospels, woven toegther and read by Sara, Pastor Karl's wife. You might just see some surprising characters you'll recognize that weren't in the Bible, but they enjoyed being  a part of acting it out! ENJOY!


Often, the Resurrection Story is only taught at Easter time, when we celebrate this amazing event. However, the Resurrection of Jesus is central to the Christian faith. As the Apostle Paul said in I Corinthians 15:14,17- 19, “And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith...And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.” He goes as far to say, “If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.” There is hardly a teaching in the Bible that is more important than the Resurrection of Jesus, since all others fall away if Jesus didnʼt rise again. It is what gives us our hope and it is ultimately why we can have no fear of death. How wonderful to know that we have nothing to fear in life or death because Jesus faced death and came back! And that is why we KNOW He can bring us back from it as well. No other founder of any other religion ever accomplished that feat. That is why only Jesus is worthy of following with our lives!
