Sunday the 15th of April - 9:00am

Bendigo Lutheran Church

For the nest few weeks we will be celebrating the events of the first Easter, and hearing accounts from the Bible of Jesus’ appearance to his disciples. This week we will be hearing about how one of the disciples, Thomas, doubted that Jesus had risen from the dead.

The Bible does not say exactly why Thomas doubted that Jesus was alive. We know that his fellow disciples, who had seen the Lord, could not persuade him to believe. It was only when Jesus appeared directly before Thomas that he could say to Jesus, ‘My Lord and my God’.

This week as a church we will be thinking through the different things that cause us to doubt the resurrection of Jesus, and we will be hearing how Jesus assures us of God’s blessing in our lives. We will especially be focusing on the way Jesus’ word of peace and forgiveness frees us to join with Thomas in confessing that Jesus is our Lord and God.

We will be meeting at 9:00am for a service with communion. Sunday school is in recess during the holidays.

God's peace,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
