Main mS phon « 2-2342 H COME TO THE And Shore In the Miracle of Easter The world has only one certified religion, only one religion which bears the signature of heaven, and that is the religion of Jesus Christ. The miracle of the first Easter is God's own signature, attesting the validity of every claim and every promise which Jesus Christ made. He had claimed that He was in truth the very Son of God. He had claimed that He would lay down His life for the sins of the world and would rise again on the third day. He had promised that all who would repent of their sins and would trust in His death for their redemption would be assured of a place in His "Father's House" above. Did He have the right to make these promises? Did He have the power to fulfill them? The miracle of Easter shouii a loud affirmative. "He was declared to be the Son of God. . . by the resurrection from the dead!" Christians throughout the world rejoice in the knowledge that they are worshipping, not a dead prophet, but a living Christ, » Christ who is eternal in the heavens, a Christ whose Easter resurrection stands unique and unassailed as the signature of heaven. First Lutheran Church of Blytheville invites all Christians of our community to share with her this miracle of Easter at our Sunrise Service on Easter Sunday. The service will be held mt "Starvue" Drive-in-Theater — your car Is your family pew. The time of the service is 6:30 A.M. The gates will be opened at 5:45 A.M. Come early to avoid traffic problems.
