He is Risen!

Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! On Good Friday, we remembered His great sacrifice on the cross, that He was crucified, was dead and buried. Only Christ's death and resurrection could atone for our sins.

The Lee family celebrated Ava's baptism yesterday! As a reminder, the Team Brighter Days Facebook page will have brief posts, thoughts, photos or an occasional video. If you haven't bookmarked this page already, you can also find the link under the "Ways to Help" page for easy reference.

Ava was baptized today. It was amazing and moving and filled with love. Our friends worked through the week
and into the night to make it so very special.
Looking out toward the many faces shedding tears of joy over Ava's faith journey, reminded me again
that we are truly not alone.

Romans 6: "We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin - because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God."
