Easter Monday Greetings

Members and Friends of Larison’s Corner Presbyterian Church – Happy Easter Monday!  – We know that the Good News of Easter continues way beyond Easter Sunday. I hope you had a nice Easter during these anxious times.  A reminder for all is that our God is with us and is our rock and our salvation.  Our hope is in the resurrection and our Risen Lord.  Hold on to this hope today and every day. 

Below are some updates for this week including the option for an online evening bible study. May God Richly Bless you!  – Pastor Courtney 

Devotion for Easter Monday, by Pastor Tom Acton – We are not sure what the disciples did on the Monday after Easter. Perhaps they stayed together celebrating the news of the resurrection, while keeping a low profile in case soldiers or other religious leaders came looking for them. We can’t be certain of anything, except we know that their lives were never the same. The men who had been so timid and fearful were now brave and courageous. Easter made all the difference for their rest of their lives.  Let it be the same for you! Do not allow the day after Easter to take away the encouragement, optimism and hope you felt and knew on Easter Sunday. The tomb was empty and no matter what unpleasantness you may face in the future, just go back in your mind to that empty tomb. There is real power, hope, and confidence there through Jesus Christ.

A PRAYER: Risen Savior, may the power of your resurrection, fill me today and for the rest of my earthly life. May the memory of your sacrifice never be far from my mind. And May I be an example of your unselfish love and care for all, today and every day. In your most glorious name, I pray. Amen.

All are invited to join an Online Bible Study for the coming weeks.  We will be studying, “Help My Unbelief,” by Barnabas Piper.  Please let me know if you are interested ASAP as we would like to begin the study this week during the evening.  There are TWO ways you can participate in the Study: The Study will be available first as a live online discussion through Zoom. Second, there will be a Recorded Bible Study for you to participate at your convenience. A preview of the study is here: https://www.lifeway.com/helpmyunbelief
An introduction to the study is here: All of us have questions about faith, but we often feel awkward or uncomfortable asking them. We assume doubt is always a bad thing. But instead of making Himself smaller and easily understood, God invites us into a larger faith—one that has room for questions, victories, failures, and mystery. This Bible study will help you see that belief in an infinite God by finite humans is an act of exploration. It’s a process of learning all we can understand and trusting God in all we can’t.
