Holy Week is upon us once again.
The week that we focus even more on the Lord Jesus’ death for our sins and resurrection on Easter morning.
But what evidence do we have for this celebration? On Sunday we’ll look at 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, and we’ll examine clear evidence that demands a decision.
Please join us in person on Sunday at 7:00AM for our combined English and Chinese Sunrise Service with communion! If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us online by going through our website: www.tcbcf.org then hit “watch livestream.” We’ll follow our sunrise service time with a special combined Sunday school for youth and up!
1. We need as many people as possible (at least 100) to subscribe to our YouTube page. You can do that by going to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgbRGVzvKD53vjQziNRl1ww . That should bring you to “Tucson Chinese Baptist Church.” Please hit “subscribe,” and you should be all set! This will give us greater control over how we manage our live stream capabilities. Thanks to all that have already subscribed! We’re almost two-thirds of the way to our goal!
2. Good Friday services. We’ll be joining with two other churches in Mid-town to do a combined virtual Good Friday service at noon on April 2nd. There will be three different ways to watch live (and share):
For those that can’t watch at noon, or would rather wait and watch together, we will also gather at church on Good Friday evening at 7 at the church and watch the same service again together.
4. Our Easter Sunrise service will be at 7AM! Share our church website and Youtube link with your friends, so they can join us during the live stream or later during the day or week. Remember, there won’t be any services after Sunday school, so if you show up at normal time, you’ll miss out on everything! Go to bed early on Saturday night, or plan on an Easter afternoon nap!
Until we meet again, by God’s grace, may you experience the power and joy of Jesus’ resurrection in your own life this week!
See you soon!
