Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives!
Dear MVCC Family,
What a marvelous melody describing the gift of Resurrection! April has many glorious ways in which we can recognize and celebrate life in Christ because of His sacrifice and resurrection.
As I prepare messages for Holy Week, I am given the opportunity to personally reflect on the events leading-up to the crucifixion of Jesus. How will you find personal reflection as we celebrate Holy Week this month? I can offer words of guidance, but ultimately personal reflection is just that, personal. We will have opportunities here at the church for you to quiet yourselves and reflect.

+ Maundy Thursday April 13th at 6:30pm
+ Quiet reflection to stop into the church for personal prayer time on Good

The wonderful thing about taking time to reflect before Easter is how God can gently nudge us into thankfulness. In the midst of our busy lives it is important to keep perspective on what our eternal lives cost. My kids have asked at different stages in their lives why we celebrate Good Friday. “Why would we celebrate the day that Jesus died?” For a young child that is a question that can be difficult to understand. We celebrate His death because His death gives us LIFE and we are thankful. We are thankful, therefore we celebrate! Join your MVCC family as we reflect on Jesus’s sacrifice and celebrate the resurrection with thankful hearts.
