Don't let the golf attire fool you. We will be inspired by the gifted music of Michael Conway who will be the vocalist for the service on Sunday. One of the numbers Mike will sing is "The Old Rugged Cross." Mike now serves on the Board of Trustees of the Church.
The focus of Lent leads to the Passover, Jesus' Last Supper, the trial and crucifixion. It was the Passover which compelled Jesus to go to Jerusalem rather than to remain in Galilee. Jerusalem was the center of Jewish faith as well as the seat of government for this Roman province. Throngs of people would be present for the Passover which celebrated Moses' and the children of Israel to miraculously escape their oppression from Pharaoh. In the face of overwhelming odds, Moses trusted God for the deliverance of his people from their bondage. As is stated in Hebrews 11:28, "It was by faith that Moses commanded the people of Israel to keep the Passover and to sprinkle blood on the doorposts so the angel of death would pass over their firstborn." Moses thus rightly deserves his place in the "Hall of Faith" for Israel. Sunday's message will focus on the example of Moses and how anyone can join him in "The Hall of Faith."
In His love and service,
