Not What I Expected

Waking up in the ICU, hopeless and with a broken heart was not what Erika expected. Everything in her life should have been good, but it just didn’t turn out that way. You’ll want to hear her story this Easter Sunday at Brazos Pointe.

Just like those who expected Jesus to lead their country into a golden era of power and freedom, watching their dream die one Friday night was not what they expected. I think most of us have experienced the loss of a dream. Everything seemed to be going well, and then…shock, disappointment, grief. It’s not what we expected.

But that doesn’t have to be the end of the story. As one chapter closes in our lives Jesus can open a new one. For the disciples looking back on the events we now call Holy Week, Jesus’ death was not what they expected. But…it ushered much, much more into their lives than they’d ever hoped for.

Bring your friends and family to Easter at Brazos Pointe. Together we’ll see how Jesus’ resurrection brings more life to us than we could ever hope for.

See you Sunday – Live Bold,

Greg

The Shift is On!

  • Everybody park in back and sit up front
  • If you attend the 9:45 service consider shifting down to 8:30
  • If you attend at 8:30 or 11:11, shift over to the right side, and into the center of the section

Easter at Brazos Pointe

March 31st will mark the last Easter we will experience at our Dixie Dr. location in Clute. And it looks to be our most powerful one yet. Over the past year God has done amazing things in our community of faith. You will hear one of those stories Easter Sunday as we consider what happens when life doesn’t turn out as you had hoped, or expected.

That’s what every follower of Jesus experienced when he was suddenly whisked away, falsely accused and then executed just days after it seemed everything they had hoped for was coming together. When all your dreams and expectations come crashing down around you on Friday, what do you do on Saturday?

You’ll be encouraged not only by what happened 2000 years ago with Jesus and his followers, but also by what God is still doing in the lives of those who love him today. You will also want to invite your unchurched family and friends to be here for the hope and inspiration Easter at BPF can bring. 

If you attend the 9:45 service I’d like you to strongly consider shifting down to 8:30 where we have plenty of room for the overflow crowds Easter brings. If you come at 11:11, please either stay put there or shift to 8:30. We could also use your help in our children’s area making the Easter experience for them fantastic as well.

Grab some Easter invite cards this weekend and start making plans for Easter 2013!

Live bold,

Greg
