I'm thankful for a little slower pace in these days immediately after Easter. During Holy Week I actually spent no more time than usual working, but with 16 worship & prayer events from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, it's nice to have all that "on stage" time done for awhile.
There's less preparation too. This week our the local youth directors are sponsoring a "DC United" event on Wednesday evening and Sunday worship will be blessed with a message from another of our outstanding young adults. So I can work on some things that get left behind most of the time.
There are lots of exciting things happening among us in the Dassel-Cokato area. I'm hoping that, in the future, we'll all be able to be more connected and know what's going on. Our church council approved funds to get a website going for our church -- hopefully more information on all kinds of things will be available at elchome.net -- for now you can see announcements from April 12 (Easter Sunday) by clicking here (6 pages, PDF).
Also, look back at Victory Garden and Faith in Action. And, coming up at 7:30 on Friday evening, April 24 at the DC High school PAC, Shane & Shane will be in concert with Matt Maher -- a one page PDF brochure is available here with info -- if you want to go and can't afford tickets, let me know.
Please feel free to use the "comments" section below to let people know about what's going on, or send an email my way so I can put it up on this blog.
It's good for all of us to be aware of the things that are going on in the body of Christ in our area. After all, the resurrection of Jesus from the dead demonstrates that it is what we do for and with Jesus that endures. Everything else fades away.
See you in church if not elsewhere!
