As we compile our thoughts for each update, we cannot help but praise our awesome God for the work that He alone has done. What an amazing thing that he uses imperfect people to accomplish His perfect work here on Earth!
One of the ways that we have seen the hand of God working lately is in the hearts of our members. We are so blessed to have Godly, dedicated people who are willing to do what it takes to accomplish God’s will. We have finished our landscaping projects purely by volunteer help from within the church, and it truly is a testimony to God’s grace in the lives of our people.
We are also excited about what we saw this past week for our Easter Celebration! Our teen youth group was able to help on Saturday by setting up all of the tables and decorations in our auditorium, and they were also in charge of making all of our homemade cinnamon rolls! We were excited that they had this opportunity to serve the Lord. On Easter Sunday, we were excited to see over 120 people show up for our free buffet breakfast! We had many volunteers from our congregation cook the breakfast, and they were blessed to be able to participate in this important outreach. Afterward, we took the tables and chairs down and set up our auditorium for church. We stood in awe as even more people showed up, with an attendance of over 150! Of course, the most exciting part of this day was seeing 3 souls trust Christ as their Savior! What a way to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!
As always, we do ask that you keep our church in prayer. We have a burden to reach our whole community with the Gospel, and we want to do this in God’s will and way. Pray as we minister to the youth both in the community and within the church. Also pray as we start planning for our first Vacation Bible School this summer! Pray for hearts to be prepared even now to accept the Gospel. We are grateful for your past and continued partnering with Cape Baptist Church in this powerful way.
