“And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them.”
1 Thessalonians 5:14
Hi, Revolution community!
I pray that this week is going well in each of your environments, and that the love of God is being spoken to you and through you every day.
As most of you know, Saturday will be our Retro Rev Bowl! It promises to be a fun time with fellowship, costumes, food, bowling and an opportunity to provide financial support for both Revolution and Neighbor2Neighbor. While I am confident it will be a meaningful time to be in community with folks you know from Revolution, it is also an ideal time to invite someone who might not be familiar with our church.
Too often in our world, church (and Christians) are perceived as places (and people) of condemnation -- those who celebrate judgment rather than resurrection. I hope you will embrace the Rev Bowl as an opportunity to be conduits of the grace and love that have been offered to each of God’s children.
Even if you are unable to join us on Saturday evening, I’d ask you to take a moment at 7:00 p.m. to offer a prayer for our church as we join together in the joy of fellowship and seek to share that joy in a way that will draw us closer to our church, our community and the Kingdom of God.

“But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body.While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them. The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen!”
Happy Easter! Thank you to everyone who made Holy Week such a powerful experience for so many. From Good Friday to the Easter Egg Hunt to Easter Morning, the last week has been full of members of our community gathering together to provide opportunities to embrace the love of Christ.
We have some really exciting events coming up at Revolution, and I want to make sure that you are aware of them. First, Erik Keltner will be leading us in Smart Cents starting Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Erik and others will be guiding us in developing financial skills -- helping us discover how we can best be stewards of the money that we have -- spending, sharing and saving with faith, wisdom and joy! If you have been wondering how to develop a regular giving plan, Smart Cents is a great place to start!
A week from Sunday will be our first-ever Shrimp Boil! Please note that this is a ticketed event. The tickets ($5.00/adult) will help offset the cost of the shrimp and be sure that we have enough food for everyone. The Shrimp Boil is also a great time to bring goods to support the Baby Grace Ministry.
Finally, May 6 will be our Rev Bowl event -- come hang out with friends, bowl some frames, and dress like your favorite decade! (For me, that would solidly be the ‘80s -- I have been digging around in boxes looking for my rugby shirts and wrestling shoes.) This event is a fundraiser for both Revolution and Neighbor2Neighbor.
There are other events going on, too. Come join us in learning, laughter and fellowship. These are also great ways to help introduce a friend to the Revolution community as we celebrate the love of the risen Christ!
Peace be with each of you,
