Bunnies and Eggs and Tulips...NO!! Well, except TULIPs. TULIPs are OK.

We have entered the most important time of the year, Holy Week. This is the week that we remember and focus on the entrance that Jesus made into the city of Jerusalem to shouts of joy and praise. But in a matter of days he would be falsely tried, beaten, mocked, and executed on a cross. But then it happened. JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD!! Some of you reading this may not believe that. Some of you may think that's it's just so much fable and fairy tale. And if that's what you think, you are blinded to the truth.

We celebrate these events because we know they are real. Join us for our Holy Week services on Good Friday, April 2nd at 8p, And Saturday at 630p and Sunday at 10a for our Easter celebration. Jesus is alive! Come and meet him.

Okay...That Seems a Little Odd.

Hearing your own voice on a recording is just weird. "Do I really sound like that!?" But hearing on the radio is even more unusual. But it looks like it's going to happen. Last week Drew Krech and I visited KBEK radio and recorded an ad, letting people know about our upcoming Easter activities. We were also given the opportunity to produce a weekly one hour show as a lead in to their already popular 'Live in Studio J' program on Sunday evenings. We would include our weekly message and the music from the service. What do you think? Check out KBEK at 95.5FM. This isn't a Christian radio station per se, but the new owners want to salt the programming with Christian content. Check them out and support their sponsors.

There's a First for Everything

For the very first time in the history of Restoration Church (I know, it's only been about two and a half years), we are installing members into the church. So far, not even the pastor, not the elders, not anyone is a member. But that will change this Sunday. Our gathering that day will welcome 38+ people into a covenant relationship with Restoration Church. This is a very exciting time for us. If you join us that day you'll see what it means to love what Jesus loves. Jesus loves the church.

Consider joining us that day if you've ever thought you'd like to check us out. You'll see first hand why we believe that it's not that we're so special, or our church is so special; it's Jesus who's so special, and he's doing some great things here. Hope to see you Sunday.

New Year...New You!! (blah, blah, blah)

Don't let the date fool you. You're still you. The change in the calender didn't bring a new personality or new tendencies. You still need the same things--more Jesus, more love, more time, and more money. Or at least you think you need more money. In fact what you need is a better plan to deal with the money you already have.

Restoration Church is going to help with this. Starting Saturday, January 31st at 9:00am we will be offer the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University program. This is a nine week program that helps us to understand God's perspective on money--earning it, spending it, saving it and giving it away. The Bible has a tremendous amount to say on these topics, and the goal is to put biblical teaching into practice.

The cost is $93 per family and we'll need you to register as soon as possible so that we can order the materials. There is a limited amount of scholarship money available, so please respond soon. Contact us using the info@restorationchurchmn.org email, or call 320.566.1124 with any questions.

This is going to be good, and is highly valuable in dealing with one of the most contentious issues to face almost every couple or individual.

Vintage Christmas Eve Service

Our Vintage Christmas continues this week with our Christmas Eve Candlelight service. We'll start at 10pm and spend some close and candlelit time reflecting on the season of celebration. A few songs, some quiet reflections, and opportunity to just quiet our minds and hearts as we remember the meaning of Christmas and rejoice in the fact that, though Jesus came as a baby, he is even now preparing to come again. And the second Advent will be even more glorious than the first. Hope to see you here.

Is Your Pastor Smarter Than a Sixth Grader?

Well, we have some pretty smart sixth graders around here, so it will be interesting to see how things go. This Wednesday, December 17th, we will have a time for Bible, Christian, theology, culture, etc questions and answers. There may be more questions than answers, but we'll give it our best shot. All those seventh grade through adult are welcome to attend. If you wonder about something but have never been able to offer up the question, please plan on attending. There will be opportunity to ask the questions anonymously. Hope to see you there.
