Our Easter Celebration at High Peak begins this month and goes through the week after Easter. You’ll enjoy all the activities over the next month as we look forward to worshiping the Risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Read on for the news on what we’re doing to celebrate the Risen Savior.
Second Sunday Fellowship
On Sunday, March 12, we’ll enjoy Taco Night, sponsored by our Children’s Ministry. We eat at 6:00 PM and will fellowship together.
As we eat, Rev. Chip Stallings, pastor of East Valdese Baptist Church, will lead us in a devotional message. He’s also bringing some of his members from East Valdese.
To finish the night, the children will lead us in a game of Jeopardy. We’ll compete with each other to prove our intellectual prowess.
Before the Fellowship, the Choir will get together for practice and preparation for Easter.
Prayer Revival with Mark Mirza – March 26
Mark Mirza leads Common Thread Ministries. They teach people about prayer and lead churches like ours to refocus on prayer.
We desperately need Revival and Spiritual Awakening in this country. Mark helps people learn to pray, one of the key elements of Revival and Spiritual Awakening.
Mark will lead our adult Sunday school classes at 10:00 a.m. and worship at 11:00 a.m. Then we’ll have a special evening worship service at 6:00 p.m., where Mark will lead us in a Prayer Experience.
On Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m., Mark will share with people interested in taking a prayer-walking mission trip to the nation’s capital this fall in September. We will pray for our leaders and our nation while there. We’ll also seek to develop relationships with our leaders so we can pray for them as they make important decisions affecting us all.
Palm Sunday Lord’s Supper – April 2
Our church will celebrate the Lord’s Supper during our Sunday morning worship service. This is a big part of what the church worldwide calls Holy Week. Jesus celebrated it for the first time during Passover on the Thursday night before his crucifixion.
Easter Sunday Breakfast, Sunday School, and Worship – April 9
In lieu of a Sunrise service, we’ll have breakfast together at 9:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday morning. Then all the adult Sunday school classes will again meet, with our pastor leading the class. Then we’ll celebrate our Risen Savior during 11:00 a.m. worship.
Fill the Tank Baptism Sunday – April 16
We pray that God will bless our church with new members who trust Jesus as Savior leading to Easter Sunday. On April 16th, we will fill the Baptistry and participate in a statewide emphasis called Fill the Tank Baptism Sunday.
Would you like to talk to the pastor about being baptized that day? Please get in touch with him via his email address or call him on his phone at 828-448-2109.
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering supports missionaries serving in the United States and Canada. Our goal is to raise funds and honor God as we also pray for North American missionaries during March and Easter. These missionaries serve in areas that struggle to support pastors, missionaries, and other ministers, who are bringing the Gospel message to areas where it is not being preached as commonly as in North Carolina.
The first Aisle March for the offering takes place on April 2 during the morning worship service. Pray about what you can give to help missionaries, especially those outside of the Southeastern United States.
One-on-One Discipleship Training on Wednesday Nights
Wednesday night Bible study for Adults takes place at 6:30 p.m. We are going through training on how to disciple people one-on-one or one-on-a-few. We will only see numerical and spiritual growth through this kind of Discipleship.
Come and join us to learn how you can disciple another person. Let the pastor know if you want someone to lead you through discipleship. We’ll connect you with someone who will happily lead you through a discipleship process.
