Easter draws near!
For Christians, every Sunday is a reminder of Christ’s resurrection, but there is something very special – holy – about the annual celebration of Christ’s victory over death, and its implications for our faith (1 Corinthians 15:4). As Easter draws near, Christians around the world join hands to worship. The Mission Arlington® family looks toward Easter too with great anticipation and joy.
Because we have been loved so much, our hope and our heart is to share God’s love as far and wide as we possibly can. Every day we are providing food and emergency financial assistance to families who find themselves in a moment of crisis. Every day we volunteer dentists and doctors are providing medical assistance to people struggling with their health.
Every week, we are assisting students with their homework, so that they can be successful with their education now and in life later on. Every week, we are loving young people through sports in multiple venues – including wrestling, baseball, basketball, and now volleyball. Every week we have the privilege of teaching God’s word in accessible Bible studies & congregations spread out in nearly 350 places across our community. We are so incredibly blessed by your support and for the privilege we have to serve our Lord in this community day by day.
As Easter draws near, we have many opportunities ahead of us to share God’s love in a few special ways:
- Our Easter Store is designed to help families have a few of the extra things they may need at Easter. The store opens April 12th and 13th from 10 to 6 each day;
- On Maundy Thursday, at 6:30 p.m., we host an annual service designed specifically for 7th – 12th graders who attend our Bible studies & congregations each week;
- Our giant Easter Egg Hunt, affectionately called the “world’s largest,” happens on Saturday, April 15th, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This event is open to the public. Easter eggs and candy are still needed for this event;
- On Easter Sunday morning, our congregations will gather all over the city to worship a risen Lord. Contact us if you have an interest in joining a Bible study near you.
Everything that happens in and through Mission Arlington® can happen because of your faithful and generous support of this ministry. We want you to know every day how grateful we are for you. May our Lord bless each of you in and through this Easter season.
