Week Five of the Covid-19 Exile
At the direction of the Governor of California, the County of Orange, and City of Anaheim, and in light of the CDC’s recommendation about avoiding groups and assemblies, and the need for social distancing, all Lord’s Day services and week classes are cancelled for Easter Sunday, April 12.
This Easter Week (Good Friday, and Easter Sunday) we will focus upon Mark’s gospel and his account of the climax of Jesus’ messianic mission.
On Good Friday (April 10), we will consider Mark’s account of Jesus’ crucifixion and its meaning for us (Texts: Mark 15:21-41; Psalm 22:1-31)
On Easter Sunday (April 12), we will take up Mark’s account of our Lord’s resurrection in light of Isaiah’s prophecy concerning the defeat of death (Texts: Mark 16:1-8, and Isaiah 25:1-12).
Please pray that the spread of the Covid-19 virus is contained by such measures staying at home, social distancing, and the regular washing of hands. Pray for your fellow church members. Be sure to check-up on any of your neighbors who may be in need. More importantly, pray that Jesus Christ be glorified in all that we say and do during this unprecedented public health crisis.
