At 10:30 a.m., registration begins for our free community Easter egg hunt. We will have four age divisions starting with ‘walkers’ to fifth grade. There will be lots of eggs and door prizes for everyone.

Community A/G
• Last Sunday, Rhonda used 2 Corinthians 4:7, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” (NIV). She titled the message, ‘Can God use Cracked Pots” and mentioned several persons in the Bible that had flaws, but God used them mightily. At the end of the message, seven people came forward and shared how God had delivered them and transformed their lives from one having been a drug dealer, one hooked on pornorgraphy, others drug addiction, alcoholism, rage and more.

• Ever notice the word anger is just one letter short of the word danger? Anger presents a difficult issue for Christians. If we can keep our anger under control, we still have to deal with the anger of others. The book of Samuel tells of King Saul’s anger toward David because the king wanted to be the center of attention. Unhealthy anger causes physical problems and unresolved anger can lead to danger. Let God help you deal with all issues, including any unresolved anger you have. Unresolved anger becomes bitter fruit.

First Love
Community Fellowship
• Thank God for a wonderful day as pastor began a new series: How to be blessed and happy biblically! Today, many people are unhappy and for many different reasons; they range from not having this or that or being able to go here or there or being accepted or approved just to name a few. If we want blessed happiness, the Word of God will lead us; read Matthew chapter 5 and put the first 12 verses for starters in your life. Pastor David’s sermon can be read in its entirety at www.firstloveky.org.

• Pastor Pullens preached “You can’t have two kings in your life” (I Kings 1:5, 39). Adonijah tried to take the kingship that belonged to Solomon. You can’t have two kings living in your life. Everyone deals with their own Adonijahs and Solomons in their own lives. The Adonijahs that want to have pride and covet what isn’t theirs. But we also have Solomons, the side wants us to be blessed, wise, giving and having support from God. Recognize the two kings in your world, get rid of the Adonijah, the world, and anoint the Solomon in your life so you can be blessed.

• The Power of the Cross, with Scripture from Mark 14;41-50, Galatians 6:14, and 2 Corinthians 10:3, was the theme of Senior Minister Gary Swick’s message at the Sunday morning worship services. He helped his listeners to look at the cross from the eyes of the disciples. They thought that their dreams and hopes were crushed by the cross. But then things changed: Jesus won; He was resurrected; and they finally understood the purpose of the cross. Special music was presented by the new youth minister and worship leader. On Sunday afternoon the minister and members conducted a worship service at Grant Manor.
