Beginning Palm Sunday, April 5th, I will be sharing a special Easter series of eight episodes that are to be watched each day during Holy Week, ending on Easter Sunday. Each video is about 12-18 minutes in length, which addresses a portion of the Bible from the viewpoint of a Bible character. Also included will be a devotional that includes discussion and application questions for adults and teens.
These episodes will be available for viewing here on our church website (www.ashlandnaz.org), the church Facebook page, my personal Facebook page, our teen (private Facebook group page), and our teen Band app. These are not live events. I will be posting them each morning so you can view and participate as an individual/family at a time most convenient each day. Also, if you miss a day, you can go back and watch the previous one. They should remain on each site for the duration of Holy week. The very first one is going to be available on Palm Sunday.
If you are not part of our local church, you are welcome to still check out our website for these, or go to my Facebook timeline each day. I hope this can be a tremendous resource to you and your family as we go through Holy Week together, as Christ's followers.

What – Connect is A place to grow and connect.
(God, The Word, Others, Mission)
When – Some have already begun; more to begin soon…
Where – Homes, church, coffee shops, restaurants, parks…
Why – The purpose of CONNECT is:
1. To know God, know His Word, to know others, and serve (mission)…
Through CONNECT, The Ashland Nazarene family can build a stronger
relationship with Christ, learn more about Him through His Biblical truths,
build community by forming strong connections, and pay it forward (mission).
2. To create an environment friendly to those who need relationship with Jesus
Christ. Connect is an opportunity and place for those who feel more
comfortable in a place outside the church walls to experience the love of God,
learn about His Word, connect to others, and to serve (mission).
What Kind – Any topic or group that draws people to Christ
How often – Whatever fits the need
Who – Anyone who has interest
What Time – Whatever fits the need
How long – Semesters, Quarters, shorter or longer…
Is the Lord directing you to open your home to host a CONNECT group?
Is the Lord asking you to lead a CONNECT group?
