Did You Know...? 03.20.16
March 20, 2016 – Easter is coming!
Did you know that next Sunday is Easter? (umm…yep!)
Did you know that we are expecting lots of people to walk thru our front doors? (Last year over 3,000 in our four services).
Did you know that we love it when we can gather as Christians and celebrate what Jesus has done for us?
Did you know that we also love having new people join us, even if they aren’t regular church-goers or ‘Hopevalers’?
Did you know that next week, when all those people are here, we want to nudge you to go the extra mile in making them feel valued and welcomed?
Did you know that going the extra mile could mean doing a lot of things – smiling, shaking a hand, introducing yourself, giving up your seat, giving up your place in line, speaking kindly?
Did you know that going the extra mile could mean NOT doing a lot of things – talking only to insiders, making sure you get the best seat, rushing past people on your way out, judging the way someone looks, grabbing the closest parking spot. (You get the idea).
Did you know that Jesus is so honored when we ‘consider others more important than ourselves’? (Philippians 2:3)
YOU ARE SO GREAT AT THIS, HOPEVALE! Can’t wait for Easter!
