Will you come and be a part of this Sermon Series: 3 more Sundays…April 27, May 4, May 11 –

I just went to church on Easter…now what?

So, you made it to an Easter service at a local church. Not only did you feel good that you went, you actually liked it.  You got a sense that life is bigger than what gets depicted on a prime-time sitcom.  You felt the gravity of the occasion and even a bit of joy.  The preacher didn’t make you fall asleep and a few of the songs connected with your soul.  This Jesus who lived in real space-time history, conquered death, and offers forgiveness is quite captivating.

What do you do now?

Option #1: Assume it was just a random coincidence and stay far far away from those crazy religious people.

Option #2: Plan to go back next Easter. Seriously, it can’t be that good every week (could it?)…or

Option #3: (my recommendation) Go back to the same church this Sunday. Feel free to email the friend who took you this week or contact the pastor who preached (you can usually find them on the church’s website). Ask them questions. Express your doubts. Heck, most pastors would even buy you lunch to talk about your impressions, concerns, and thoughts…that’s what they love to do!

And if you attended my church this Sunday, shoot me an email ( or call me at 447-1688. Let’s do lunch.

Important info (especially for parents) – Good Friday Service

Dear friends,

At tonight’s 6:30PM Good Friday service at Northbrook Baptish Church (1700 Boyson Rd NE), a skit team from Center Point High School will be performing a mime to music about the victory Christ offers us.
I want to warn parents that some of the thematic material may be too much for small children (alcohol use, seeking life in the opposite sex, suicide, etc.). Please preview the sketch by watching this YouTube video. This is not exactly how the Center Point students perform the sketch, but it is similar.
If you think the material is too heavy for your children, feel free to step out into the hallway or use the restroom during the skit (it’s about 7 minutes long).
Also, if you could bring a few goodies to share after the service, that would be most appreciated.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Matt
