RESCUE Series Starts this Weekend at Woodlands Church

Rescue - Lessons from the Life of Noah

God did an amazing work this Easter! Over 40,000 people attended our services at our four campuses. (The largest crowds in the history of Woodlands Church!) Most importantly, 601 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ and became new disciples on Easter 2011! The Bible tells us that when one person makes a faith commitment to Christ that the angels celebrate. There must have been a great party in heaven this Easter over all the new believers at Woodlands Church!

I’m even more excited about this weekend at all of our Woodlands Church campuses. I’m starting a new series called RESCUE – Lessons from the Life of Noah. God’s rescue of Noah from the floodwaters is a famous story with a forgotten message. In this series, we will take a fresh look at the life of Noah and discover how God can rescue you when the waters rise.

Our team of volunteers has gone over the top building an ark for the set that will help communicate the message of how God can rescue you from the floods of anxiety, stress and hopelessness. This is a series you will want to invite all your friends, neighbors and family to.

I believe God has begun a momentum with Easter that will result in thousands of changed lives. Please join me in praying for those who have already made commitments to Christ from the Easter services and for the many who indicated they are considering that relationship and will be coming to our new series.

I look forward to seeing you back this weekend!

Easter // Day 42

“He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.”  (Matthew 28:6, NIV).

Easter is the encore of heaven! It’s the triumph over evil, death and hell itself! No event in history can compare with the victory of the empty tomb! Because He lives we too may live! Our sins can be forgiven! Our lives can be filled with hope and a power beyond ourselves to live victoriously!

We’ve talked about how we would live our lives if we knew we had one month to live in this Lent Experience. But the resurrection presents a whole new challenge. How would we live our lives if we knew death was not the end! It’s not the final act. It’s really when the curtain opens and we get to see behind the veil. We get to live eternally! How awesome is that?
