God bless you!! I hope this week's Email Encourager finds you doing well. I love this time of year. The beginning of Spring brings with it new growth and opportunities. Sounds like what scripture tells us, doesn't it?! (Check out this week's Victory Verse.)
I also appreciate this time of year because of the opportunity to touch thousands of lives with Christ's love through our annual Easter Outreaches. Easter Weekend is less than 3 weeks away!! We begin it with a special Good Friday Community Breakfast @ NV, where our special guest will be Michael Franzese, who brings an incredible testimony as an ex-Mafia kingpin. Though his life has been threatened and there have been many "hits" out on him, he continues to share his incredible story of a transformed life through the power of Jesus Christ.
Invite everyone you know and join us to enjoy an exquisite breakfast, music and Michael's powerful story, that you won't forget. He'll also be with us at our Easter services - but only speaking briefly. At the Community Breakfast he will speak at length, with Q&A. Ticket prices are nominal with added discounts for bringing a guest(s).
And 2 days later we celebrate Easter Sunday at our 23rd annual Easter Outreaches. The lineup is TREMENDOUS... there'll be something for the entire family. Our Sunrise Service program will be repeated on our NVCF campus at 10:30am.
Yep, Spring is in the air, along with a whole lot of opportunities to bring help and hope to thousands of lives throughout San Diego County. We're so blessed that as a New Venture family we have the opportunity to serve together, to make this the greatest Easter that folks have ever experienced. Ourselves included :)!
Blessings again on your entire day. Have a great one. I look forward to seeing you this weekend.
Your friend & Pastor,
