Dear Friends,

The Apostle Paul ties Christian baptism to our Lord Jesus in Romans 6. Just as Christ died, we die in our baptism. So too, as Jesus resurrected to new life,  we come out of the waters of baptism with new life. God speaks amazing promises over us through baptism. On this side of heaven, we feel the weight of suffering, sin and death. Soon, however, those in Christ will see all trials as light and momentary preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comprehension (2 Cor. 4:17). And all this, secured by our Messiah’s death and resurrection. He is risen; he is risen indeed.

#1: Check out the weekly Pastor Encouragement YouTube Video ( There’s a bonus interview on the end with two amazing Christian women from our church family.

#2: Good Friday Service (6PM); Resurrection Sunday Service (9:25AM). Both services will be via our church’s Facebook Live broadcast and then posted for future watching when the services end ( Sunday’s bulletin includes the lyrics for both services.

#3: Easter Hellos – Today is the last day to send me your short (10 second) videos wishing your Cornerstone Family a joyous Resurrection remembrance! We’ll put all these together for our service Sunday (include your name with a brief verse or word of encouragement).

#4: Church Family Encouragement and Prayer, next Thursday April 16 @ 6:30PM on GoToMeeting ( – Before you join next Thursday’s web conference, spend some time meditating on John 16:33. What did this promise from Jesus mean for the original disciples? How does this promise speak to you and our church family today?

All glory be to Christ our King,
Pastor Matt
