How wonderful it is that we have, and will continue to, celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is such a blessing! It’s no coincidence that Easter is celebrated in Spring. For our Lord has designated a time and season for all things. In nature, we observe the transformation from winter (cold and barren) to spring (hope, renewal, rebirth). Our great and powerful God (Elohim) conquered the darkness and barren grin of death and rose again on the third day to bring hope, renewed and eternal life to those reborn in spirit. Praise be to God! His MIGHTY omnipresence is seen in all things…in all of His creation.
In the month of April, Children’s Ministry has some fun and important events for your children. If you haven’t heard already, Rush Creek follows the Faith Path Steps. The Faith Path was created as a step-by-step plan to help you be intentional as you prepare for key faith milestones and foster spiritual disciplines in your child’s faith journey. If you would like to get your hands on some excellent Faith Path resources, please stop by the children’s check-in desk at your local campus. On Sunday, April 22nd, we will be hosting Parent Dedication Orientation from 5-7 PM at the Green Oaks campus. Parent Dedication is simply making a commitment to raising your child in a Christ-centered home. We would love for you to sign up for this event!
Don’t forget, with the Faith Path Steps come incredible faith decisions. I’m talking about Salvation and Baptism! When your child trusts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, create a time of celebration and guide your child into believer’s baptism. We would love to have a conversation with you and your child if you feel she is ready. Baptisms will be at a campus near you very soon! If you have any questions, please email us at
. Happy Spring!
