Easter Worship Reminders

Sherry and I are getting prepared to head to scenic Beaufort, SC in the morning to do another wedding. We will be back on Sunday morning to celebrate Jesus' resurrection with all of you. Here are a few things that we talked about this past Sunday that we need to remember for this week:

-Where you sit is important.
We are expecting a full house this week, therefor I am asking all of you to sit as close to the front as possible. That way anyone who comes in late will not have a hard time finding a seat. Also, move all the way to the middle of the row before you sit. Again, this will leave the aisle seats for folks who are running late.

-Everyone is on the welcome team.
Scott Wolfe does a great job leading our Welcome Team every week. All of the folks who normally serve on that team play a huge role in what happens every Sunday morning at Freedom. Remember, you don't have to be an official member of the Welcome Team to greet guests. One of the things that folks who visit our church for the first time consistently say to me is that they were made to feel welcome. Be sure and keep that up this week. There will plenty of new folks for you to meet.

-Where you park is important.
If you are a regular Freedom attender I want to ask you to park in the large parking lot located at the far end of Greer High School. This will leave more of the spaces in the front parking lot for our guests. The weather is supposed to be nice, so this will give you a good chance to enjoy a short power walk before worship.

-Come prepared to celebrate.
The resurrection is certainly worth getting excited about. When we gather on Sunday it should be with an attitude of excitement, anticipation, and thankfulness.

Remember to invite your friends to come with you! I am looking forward to seeing you on Sunday!
