We know that as Christians we are linked together through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the core of our faith and what makes us who we are. There is no better time of year to capitalize on that than Easter! It is a great time to celebrate and share that great news with everyone we meet!
On Saturday, March 19th, LINC held an event at Redeemer Lutheran Church to teach children about Holy Week using Resurrection Eggs. The children also enjoyed an egg hunt, bounce castle, other games, and snacks led by members of the congregation and LINC volunteers.
Redeemer is the fifth-oldest congregation in San Antonio. Like many other institutions in the city, it has seen its neighborhood change over time and has had a hard time keeping up with the changing culture. A couple of months ago the leadership of the congregation reached out to LINC to help them get more involved in their neighborhood. The catalyst for this was Redeemer members seeing the great things LINC has facilitated around the neighborhood of Christ Our Savior. This Easter celebration was born out of those conversations! The congregation collected donations of plastic eggs and snacks. The weekend before the event, volunteers walked through the neighborhood, praying selected Bible verses over it. The event and volunteers were covered in prayer and God blessed it all!
On Saturday the 19th, 25 neighborhood children and their families attended this event at Redeemer from 1pm-4pm. The rain held off and the sun dried up the area from the storms the evening before. Ten volunteers joined together to lead the activities and discussions with the families. Much joy filled the area for the afternoon as the families heard the story of God's love through Jesus.
This event brought a sense of excitement to the congregation of Redeemer, and conversations are already taking place about what can be done next in this neighborhood. Join us in praying that God continues to foster discussions and excitement about serving His people in this area.
