Easter Sunday
Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” - Matthew 28:1-7

Join us as we celebrate our Risen Savior! Bible Study begins at 9:15 and Worship is at 10:30.

As you review and reflect on the Passion story you have heard this week, let yourself process the events and process your feelings before Sunday comes. You’ve heard the story before. You know what will happen. You know the celebration that comes on Sunday. But wait. Before you leave the tragedy of Friday, use Saturday to let yourself see the story playing out in your mind, hear the noises, smell the odors, feel the tension. Process the story in a way you’ve never heard or felt it before. (

Join us tomorrow as we celebrate our Risen Savior.

Good Friday
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” - Matthew 27:45-54

Join us for Holy Week service at 12:05 with Jeff Casteel bringing the message. Lunch will follow. The sanctuary will be open from 3:00-7:00 pm to offer the Lord's Supper.

Maundy Thursday
And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” - Mark 14:22-25

Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. John 13:3-5

Holy Week Services continue Thursday with Wayne Hedrick speaking. Services begin at 12:05 at First Baptist Gate City. You'll enjoy music, a message and a meal -all on your lunch hour. Worship with folks from churches in our community.


Arrangements for Betrayal
Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew near, which is called the Passover. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to put him to death, for they feared the people. Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve. He went away and conferred with the chief priests and officers how he might betray him to them. And they were glad, and agreed to give him money. So he consented and sought an opportunity to betray him to them in the absence of a crowd. - Luke 22:1-6

Join us as we continue Holy Week services with our Pastor, Andy Barnes, speaking at 12:05. Lunch will follow.

[04/11/17]   Holy Tuesday
As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away to its roots. And Peter remembered and said to him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered.” And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” - Mark 11:20-25

Join us as we continue celebrating Holy Week with Gordon McBride speaking today at 12:05. Lunch to follow!

Holy Monday
On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it. And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. And he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.” And the chief priests and the scribes heard it and were seeking a way to destroy him, for they feared him, because all the crowd was astonished at his teaching.
And when evening came they went out of the city. - Mark 11:12-19

A tree not bearing fruit and a temple being used as a market and not a place of worship- may these examples cause us to examine our hearts and our relationship with our Savior.

Join us this week as we host Holy Week services. Lester Morelock will speak at 12:05. You'll enjoy music, a message and a meal-all on your lunch hour.
