This Sunday will be a strange one to not be together at Little Flatrock, but we can still be together in spirit AND in action — even while we’re apart. We are sharing a worship service at home idea with you that we could all participate in “together-apart.”
We encourage you to start service this Resurrection Sunday wherever you are at 11:00 a.m. (so we’re doing this together). The church bell at LFCC will be rung for those of you near enough to hear it, and the rest of us can imagine it. At that time we suggest you sing (or just listen to if you prefer) “He Lives.” Here’s a link to a lovely version of it that would be easy to sing to and has the words on the screen if you don’t remember them.
After that, read John 17:20-26, keeping in mind that Jesus prayed for us! For YOU! He knows our struggles and was willing to suffer with us and for us. Finish your Scripture reading with John 20 and rejoice in His victory over the grave.
Pray together, and if you are able, take communion (a simple cracker and juice will do).
Watch for Pat’s video message coming later this week to add to your service.
Finally, we ask that if you’re on Facebook, you share a picture of yourself and anyone else in your household that is celebrating Jesus with you. We’ll have a post asking you to do so, and you can add your picture in the comments. We’d love to “see” you Sunday, and we’d love for our community to know that we’re celebrating. Let’s share with them and each other the joy and hope we have. As someone shared “Church buildings may be empty on Easter, but so is the grave!” That’s something to cheer!
