From your Pastor;

              Where did everybody go?
       
       It seems that the Easter crowd always forgets about the next Sunday and so on until the next Easter.  Quite unfortunate for them as well as we.  I’ve often thought about this along with the Christmas holiday, why people feel the need to attend church for His birth and death, resurrection celebration, but none of the other holy days we meet together.  I’ve yet to come up with a logical explanation except that they are not saved. But I’m just not satisfied with that. Could it be that we as the body of Christ go out of our way to encourage them on Easter and Christmas, then give up on them the remainder of the year?  O sure we pray for them, and invite them occasionally, but do we really want them the other 50 weeks of the year. Do we forget that Jesus died and rose for them as well. 
      I believe if we would apply our Easter and Christmas eagerness to the other 50 weeks we might be surprised who shows up.
