A Shared Easter Celebration Builds Bridges
For some time now the Anchor Point Church plant in Stanfield, Ore., has shared space with the Living Water Four Square Church in what many years ago was the Stanfield High School. Anchor Point members have enjoyed a good relationship with their Four Square brothers and sisters, trading spaces Sabbaths and Sundays. As Easter weekend neared last year, both churches recognized a desire to celebrate with a special program for their friends and neighbors. They also recognized their limited resources, and so they decided to join forces. They wrote a script depicting the events surrounding Jesus’ death, mostly focusing on the experience of Peter. The services were a positive and moving experience for both congregations.
This coming Easter brings another opportunity for churches around the Northwest to build bridges and bring the gospel to our world.
