Hello Fellow IBC People!

I was reading somewhere that spring time usually comes this time of year and I thought we should be prepared for when it gets here. Therefore, I am announcing that we will be having a SPRING CLEANING DAY on May 24th at The Meeting Place!!!

We have a long punch list of things to do, so if you can wash a window, run a vacuum, use a paintbrush, hammer, or broom, know how to plant a flower or use a weed whacker, or a rake, please join us for some tidiness and fellowship. Also, we will probably have some snacks!

It will probably start around 10:00 AM ‘til whenever we are finished.

God Bless!

PRELUDE – “Celebrate (He Lives)” by Fred Hammond

Song –

Christ the Lord is Risen Today” by Charles Wesley

Scripture Reading – Matthew 28:1-9

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.

Up From the Grave He Arose” by Robert Lowry

Crown Him With Many Crowns” by Elvey, Thring, and Bridges

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH –

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried; and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; and he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets; and we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

POSTLUDE – “Forever” by Brian Johnson

So yesterday was Palm Sunday which is the beginning of Holy Week, when we remember the last week of Jesus’ earthly life.

This week we are doing a suggested Fast from sweets to focus our prayers and remember the bitterness of life apart from Christ and the bitter cup that Jesus drank for us.

On Good Friday we will be having a special service at 6:45 PM at The Meeting Place to revisit the crucifixion.

From Friday night through Sunday you sign up to pray for hour long slots.  Contact Abby at prayer@immanuel dash baptist dot net to sign up.

On Saturday we will be doing Evangelism in the UIC Area, sharing the gospel and inviting people to Easter service. We will meet at 10:00 AM at The Meeting Place and go out from there.

We will be having a potluck breakfast at 9:30 AM before our Easter service next Sunday.

Small Groupswill all meet this week as normal.

If you want to watch a short video explaining what happened historically on each day of this week, you can check these out:

Immanuel Parents:

The catechism question for this Sunday is – “What is God?”

And the children’s answer is – “God is the Creator of everyone and everything.”

Be working on this with your kids for this Sunday.

In preparation for Easter we are planning a time of continuous prayer from 10:00 PM on Good Friday until Easter morning. If you would like to participate, I have included a Google doc where you can sign up for a one hour time slot. You can pray alone, with a group, or with your family.
