Pastoral Notes for Sunday, April 14, 2019

As you prepare for worship at Cornerstone, the Shurden family is preparing for worship at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, MS. As many of you know, we moved from FPC Jackson to Franklin nine years ago to plant Cornerstone Presbyterian Church, and we have many fond memories and close relations there. Very kindly, FPC Jackson invited me back this weekend to lead a marriage retreat and preach Sunday services. Though saddened to miss Palm Sunday with the Cornerstone family, I am grateful for the opportunity to reconnect with the sweet folks of FPC Jackson this weekend.

Sweeter still is the opportunity we will have this week to worship on Good Friday and Easter Sunday! It will be particularly special to worship on Good Friday with our sister churches Christ Presbyterian Church Cool Springs and All Saints Presbyterian Church in Brentwood. Please note that Good Friday services are at 6pm and 7:45pm this year. Due to the convenience of the 6pm time slot, we are anticipating that service to be very full. In hopes of preventing overcrowding and spreading attendance evenly between services, I would kindly ask those of you with flexible schedules to consider attending the 7:45pm service. Thank you for considering this.
