More people attend church on Easter weekend than any other time of the year. More people receive Christ on Easter weekend than any other time of year. It is the most important weekend of the Christian calendar. That is why it is important for you to be involved this Easter. Here are four things you can do to make Easter weekend a great moment in your life.
1. Show up.
You need to attend and worship on Easter. At Avalon Church we have several opportunities for you to attend. Service times are 6:00 PM on Saturday and 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM on Sunday. I hope you will take advantage of one or more of these options.
2. Bring someone.
Studies show that most people will come to church if someone would simply invite them. Invite your friends, neighbors, family, and co-workers. Grab a handful of Easter invite cards and pass them out. We are praying for 100 people to receive Christ on Easter weekend at Avalon Church.
We need all hands on deck. Studies show that for every one volunteer four people attend. We need you to be involved. This is not for us, though we certainly have a big vision for how God is going to use us. This is about you. The Bible teaches that serving precedes spiritual growth. Get involved! Serve in at least one service. Find out how to get involved at one of the services this weekend.
4. Bring a special offering.
We are taking a special offering on Easter. This offering is over and above the regular tithes and offering that you normally give. I am asking every person who attends Avalon to give something. Pray about what God wants you to give. Kim and I have prayed and we agreed that God has led us to give our 2015 tax return. No matter what the amount is, pray and ask God to reveal to you what you should give. This offering will go toward helping our student ministry, our children’s ministry, and our outreach and evangelism efforts.
I can’t wait to see you this Sunday. Let’s pray for a great Easter at Avalon Church!
