Wow! What a day of Worship. Sunday started off with our Sunrise Service; New Paradise Membership I love and appreciate you, for you came out for the 6:00 a.m. Service. The Voices were wonderful. I must give a shout out to the Associate Ministers: Rev. Bryant Overstreet, Rev. Anthony Long, Rev. Kevin Petrie and Rev. Marvin Davidson. You all were outstanding. I want to give a shout out to Zenobia Watkins and the Hospitality Committee for making a wonderful Breakfast.

Once again, Church School was a tremendous blessing. We started out in our classes and we then reassembled for the Easter Program. I am so proud of Sis. Rhonda Bateman and Dea. Donnie Little for the wonderful job they did in putting together the Skit and Speeches. Then to our High Schoolers for sharing What Easter Means to me. Props to Niara Walker, Diarra Thomas and Kamaria Walker for their tremendous praise dance to the CeCe Winans song “It Wasn’t Easy,” these young Ladies were a blessing to everyone. Major Props to Zenobia for Choreographing the praise dance.

The Joy did not stop in Church School; the Mass Choir was off the chain. Tina and Everett lead and showed out on “Jesus Loves Me” and Tommie showed out on “No Greater Love.” I preached from John 20:11-18 “The Benefits of the Resurrection. ” It was so good seeing all of the visitors and we had another blessing of seeing Mother Langston. We acknowledged Mother Everett’s Birthday.

Once again New Paradise, I love you! You are a blessing to me. Thank you for being a wonderful church. God’s continued blessings to you!
