Jesus is alive!
For the last eight years Celebration Church has been meeting at St John Fisher church hall on Waltham Rd. This building has been a blessing to us and we have really appreciated the hospitality and assistance the local Catholic church have given to us during this time. However, when it was put up for sale at the end of 2016, and our offer to buy the building was not successful, we began to seek the LORD as to the way forward.
It’s quite fitting that our last Sunday in St John Fisher hall will be Resurrection Day. We can reflect on God’s goodness in all that has gone before and look excitedly to all He is going to do for us in the future. He has good plans for us, as individuals and as a collective fellowship together, and as we move we believe we enter a new and exciting phase of the church’s life!
We knew the LORD would lead us in all this, and He has done that! He has opened the way for us to move to the newly extended and refurbished Scartho Community Library on St Giles Ave. Our first Sunday there will be the 8th April, at the usual time of 10.30am!
The library is still in the final throes of the rebuilding and renovation process, so as you can see above in the photo taken on 29th March, it is still pretty much a building site on the outside.
Inside however, most of the work is complete, and so we will be able to move our all our various items and equipment next week prior to our first Sunday service there on the 8th April. Just to confirm, we will have front door access so we don’t need to negotiate whatever building works are still underway to the right of the entrance way. (For more information on the Library click here.)
So, as we approach the Passover, and remember Jesus’ death and resurrection in fulfilment of it, let’s contemplate the following verses:
Thus says the LORD, who makes a way in the sea
And a path through the mighty waters, Who brings forth the chariot and horse,
The army and the power (They shall lie down together, they shall not rise;
They are extinguished, they are quenched like a wick):
“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
