Hello New Life!
Below is an order for in-home worship for Easter Sunday, April 4.
If you start your in-home service at 9:30 am, you'll be synchronized with us and you'll be able to stream the sermon as it starts going live (at about 9:45 am). Don't worry if you miss the live-stream; a recording of the sermon will be available on our sermons page by Sunday afternoon.
And here is this week's sermon-based activity sheet with questions for kids (If you'd rather not print, the same questions are available for discussion at the bottom of this blog post, as well):
ORDER FOR IN-HOME WORSHIP
Call to Worship - Prepare your heart for worship by reading:

Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21 NIV)
Discussion Questions for Kids
1. Sometimes, we get great news, like when parents tell their kids that their family is going on a trip to Disneyland. What is one example of great news you have received in your life?
2. As you listen to today's sermon, Pastor Marttell will be talking about the greatest news ever. What is that greatest news?
3. A long time ago, God promised to rescue us from sin and death, and he kept his promise! He has rescued us through the death and resurrection of Jesus. As a way of showing love back to God, what are some ways you can serve God throughout your whole life?
