Passover: The Journey that Moves Us Toward the Cross

April 14, 2017

0417 Peacemakers Passover LetterOur Peacemakers Family is AMAZING! Thank you to you for being a part of it. We are each blessed to be a member of a community blessed with so many caring, generous individuals who truly believe in our vision and mission.

It takes all of us working together, praying together, and financially supporting the church together to fulfill our mission of reaching out to our community. I have faith that Jesus is going to do MIRACULOUS works through the Peacemakers Family in 2017!

“Three times a year all your men must appear before the Lord your God at the place he will choose: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles. No one should appear before the Lord empty-handed.” (Deut. 16:16)

Will you consider a special Passover gift this year?

This special “outreach” gift will help us “win the lost” through outreaches!

Many of our outreaches take place in the summer, which is a slower time financially. To help even out the financial needs for our major outreaches, we set aside the gifts from Passover to fund vital events such as our eight weeks of Summer Blast Daycamps.

Our Daycamps reach nearly 500 students, ages 5 to 14, five days a week. We also reach their extended families when they see positive changes in the children and attend the special programs and performances. Your donation is helping us reach thousands each week! We also use the funds for our our Back to School program, and our many other outreaches to the children and families of our community.

God has a plan for each of us, and we are blessed beyond measure when we agree with and work toward His plan. Part of His plan for each of us is reaching out to others and bringing them the message of Jesus’ sacrifice and love, a message that will change their lives forever.

Passover and Easter remind us of the amazing and miraculous sacrifice God made for each of us when He saved us from our sins by allowing the sacrifice of His only Son. That, my friend, is TRUE Love, a love that truly changed everything!

Passover retells the story of how God spared His people from death in Egypt. To rescue His people from slavery, God took the lives of all the firstborn Egyptian males, but He passed over the Israelites’ homes that had the blood of a sacrificed lamb on their door frames.

The blood of the Passover lamb foreshadowed the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He passes over the sins of each person who repents, sparing each of us from eternal death. His sacrifice changes our futures by giving us the chance to live with Him for eternity.

Christ is the true Passover Lamb.

For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (1 Cor. 5:7-8).

Passover is an event we are supposed to share with others, a part of our outreach to our community. I want to urge you to pray about how Jesus is calling you to reach out to our community, how He is calling you to Change the future of so many amazing children and families. Your Passover gift will truly CHANGE LIVES!

Thank you for helping us reach out and “win the lost” for Jesus! You are part of our Passover and Easter miracle!
