Easter Service to be held at Lakeview Auditorium

Please join us for our Easter Service on Sunday, April 5th at the Lakeview Auditorium.  All are welcome. Coffee and donuts will be served.

Dear Swan Lake Family,

This Easter, we will hold our Easter Morning service at the Lakeview School Auditorium.  This is always a special service as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and new life we have in Him.  We encourage you to take some of the flyers from the back of the sanctuary and share them with your family and neighbors – helping us to spread the word about this service.

Even in a society where people are skeptical about churches and religion, 80% still say they would attend a church service – if invited.  Obviously, having someone with you when you come to a church service makes people more comfortable.  Also, more people are simply more inclined to attend around special seasons like Easter.

Our hope is the school auditorium will provide a neutral location and make it easier for people to attend.  One of the hardest things for a person to do is walk through the doors of a church – often times there is just too much guilt and too much unknown.  So we are praying an auditorium setting, where they have likely been before attending concerts and performances of their children and grandchildren, will be a little easier.

With Easter just a week away, please join me in praying for Easter Sunday morning – that God’s Spirit would be working in the hearts of people even now.  Pray about whom you might invite and make it a point to contact them – perhaps even have them join you for Easter dinner afterwards.
