Welcome to St. Matthew's United Church of Christ

Pastor Cliff Herring

Dear Friends in Christ,

We are weeks away from the celebration of the greatest event in human history. Christ chose as God to come to earth, to live among us to live for us, to die for us, and to be raised to redeem us. There is so much that He did for us, and we have the unique privilege not only to worship Him but to live for Him and give Him the glory due His name.

Jesus Christ has literally changed the course, character, conduct and climate of history. The event of the resurrection forever confirmed the fact that God would not leave mankind without hope and amazingly allows us the privilege to be His child and His friend, and to dwell in peace with Him forever.

As You prepare yourself for Easter Sunday be reminded that there are those that He still seeks to redeem and to call to Himself. Another awesome fact is that He chose us as vessels of mercy to share this good news. Luke 24 reminds us that the women who arrived at the tomb heard great news from the angels.

.... very early the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to, the tomb ..... They found the stone rolled away from the tomb… they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus... suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them… “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how He told you ...The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again." Then they remembered his words. When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. - Luke 24:1-9

The first thing the women wanted to do was to tell the story that Jesus was risen from the dead. That should be our first priority as well. Tell the story of Jesus to all we come in contact with and' give them a glimpse of the hope that we've experienced.

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. For one hundred years St. Matthews UCC has been telling the story of Jesus and the story continues to be told. Amen!

He is risen, He is risen indeed,

Pastor Cliff Herring
