FAQ, Part 2
Dear Spry Family,
What a glorious celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ! With all we've been through over the last year, I've never been more excited about, or more ready for, Easter.
Do you remember the reflection question from our Easter message? "If Jesus is really risen from the dead, how can that affect my life today--my relationships, my outlook, my purpose, and more?" I put my post-it note on my bathroom mirror, and every time I look at it it's a reminder to consider this question and pray. We can live every day in the power of Jesus' Resurrection.
This Weekend in Worship
This Sunday we continue our FAQ series by looking at what the Bible says about suffering, and how we can find strength and hope in hard times. You probably know someone who needs this message. Why not reach out with an invitation to worship with us this weekend?
Alpha: A Chance to Explore Life's Questions
We’re offering the Alpha course in two formats this spring, in person on Tuesday nights and online on Wednesday nights starting April 20 and April 21. Alpha is for those who want to explore the big questions of life and faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment either online or in person. Each week we’ll watch a 25-minute film that looks at a question around faith and is designed to create conversation. No question is out of bounds. Let’s explore the big questions in life. Invite your friends, too! Alpha is free and open to all. Register by April 12 at SpryChurch.com/alpha.
Grow in Your Understanding and Practice of Prayer
We’re also offering The Prayer Course, an 8-week journey that will help you grow and deepen your prayer life. Tuesday nights from 7-8 starting April 20. Register by April 16 at SpryChurch.com/prayer-course.
Your Input Wanted
We’d like to hear from you! Our church is working with a leading consultant in youth ministry and we’d love your input--whether or not you are a parent or grandparent of youth (youth will have the opportunity for input in other sessions). Our consultant, an experienced Youth Pastor and Messiah University professor, would like to talk with anyone from our church who desires to share their thoughts around the youth ministry of Spry Church. These 30-minute interviews are a time to share hopes and dreams on the development of a ministry to, with, and through young people. The conversations can be done in person at our church or by Zoom. Sign up for a time through our church office (Office@SpryChurch.com / 717-741-1429) for any of the following times:
Monday, April 12: 6:00-6:30, 6:30-7:00, 7:00-7:30, 7:30-8:00
