Prepare for Passover

April 2019 J.B. Bernstein is coming to Eitz Chaim to teach us how to share our faith in preparation for the April 22nd Passover Seder Outreach to the community.

As Part of our preparation we are wanting all of our adults to work on memorizing verses to share with people they meet. We are beginning with John 1:12 and John 3:3 please try and learn it in the NIV  – this is the most user friendly version for non believers.
Week five Scriptures:
John 10:9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. New International Version (NIV)
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; New International Version (NIV)

During the Praise and Worship there will be rooms available in the office for Healing Prayer and other needs. Ben will make an announcement, and there will be periodic slides inviting folks to come back for prayer as they feel the need. We will have 3 rooms available, See one of the ushers for directions any time during the Praise and Worship service prior to the Message.
