Happy Easter!

 
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…” 1 Peter 1:3
 
None of us expected to be celebrating Easter this year surrounded by the challenge and pressure of the Covid 19 pandemic. However, as believers, the resurrection reminds us that in the midst of everything that is happening around us, we have hope because of the resurrection of Jesus. Our prayer this Easter, is that the hope of the resurrection will flood your life!
