Easter Gathering 
Please note the two gathering times
This will be our first Easter Sunday in our new building.  We hope you join will join us and we encourage everyone to invite your friends and family.
 

Join us this Sunday as we begin a 5 week series entitled; 
“Legends – finding inspiration from stories of Scripture”
This week’s message is about “Thomas-leveraging the power of doubt”  

 Remember, if you love what’s happening at aldea, we ask that you invite some friends to love it with you. See you at 10:00 am this Sunday

 
 
A message from our Director of family programs: Michelle

 The kids will continue to learn about the Heroes of the Bible this week.  We will be talking about Jonah and how he learned that “God’s love is for everyone.”  The verse for this week comes from 1 John 4:21close1 John 4:21 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother. (ESV) close1 John 4:21close1 John 4:21 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother. (ESV) 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother. (ESV) and says, “Whoever loves God must love others also.”

Jonah had to be swallowed by a whale before he could believe this – hopefully it will not take an act quite as dramatic for our kids to believe it.  They are, after all, a pretty enlightened group of kids.

See you Sunday.

A message from our Youth Director: Debbie

 The youth group has started a new series called, “Asking the Hard Questions!” Have you ever had questions you were not sure if you are allowed to ask in church.  Well the youth have just been given a free hall pass to do just that.  Come ask whatever questions you want about God, Church, the Bible, Life etc…  Many awesome questions have already been submitted and each week we will pick one question (or questions if they center on one topic) to talk about.  If you didn’t put in your question yet, or if you have another question, there is still time to submit it.  I will have a question box on Sunday for you to deposit your question incognito.

Also, a huge THANK YOU! to everyone who helped change the youth area around last Sunday!!  I think this new change will make a big difference for us.  We appreciate the help!!

Fifth Friday at Five Points Primavera

When: May 30, 2014

This is a great way to begin the new year by taking what we have and using it for the benefit of others by preparing and serving a meal to the residents.

 These are people transitioning back into the job market and striving to become independent after various unfortunate circumstances.  This is a great way to involve your children to help those less fortunate.  If you want to sign up to bring a meal, serve the meal, or both, please contact us at info@loveperiod.org and someone will contact you with more information.

Prayer For The Week

Spirit-

Fill me with hope.

Let me shine your rays of possibility into the lives of others.

 

Fill me with peace.

May your calm, centering spirit surround me so that I may be still, and gift others with tranquility.

Fill me me with love.

Let kindness, acceptance, and joy fill my heart so that when others look at me they will see You, O God, smiling back at them.

AMEN
