Make the Most of Easter (part 1)

We're less than a week away from Easter (April 4) and we're REALLY excited about it!!!  We've been spending a lot of time planning and praying for this weekend.  We don't know exactly what God wants to do but we believe it's going to be great!  Here are some ways you can participate in making the most of Easter this year:

1) Invite.  Invite.  Invite.  Our friends and family are extremely open to attending church on Easter Sunday, lets invite them to join us.  I've been doing this as much as I can!  One thing you can use to invite is that there will be a free Easter Egg hunt for the kids.  We also have more invite cards if you need any this week.

2) Utilize your Facebook status or Twitter updates to invite your friends to join you.   Let them know where you're going to church, what time, and where the service is (we are having one 10am Easter service at Seneca).  Don't be annoying about this but be genuinely excited about what God is doing in your life and in your church.

3) Begin praying now for our Easter service.  The most important factor in people opening their hearts to the grace of God is NOT the presentation.  It's the condition of their own heart.  Pray that our friends and family who attend on Easter Sunday would be open, ready and anxious to hear the message of God's grace and forgiveness.

4) Check out Evident's Easter themed website, and forward it to someone.  The site looks amazing!  Check it out and it's as simple as forwarding it on to a few friends and saying, "Hey, check this out!"  There are all kinds of resources on the website that will help them learn more about our church and possibly consider coming.  Do what you can and help spread the word, you never know how God is going to work in someone's life.

Can't wait to see what God does this weekend!!!
