Dear CCR Family and Friends,

This week is one that history remembers as the one that changed the world. Sometimes in our comfort with religion we miss the paradox of the ordinary and extraordinary. Two thousand years ago, a Jewish carpenter turned itinerant preacher, named Jesus of Nazareth was executed by the Roman government with Jewish religious and political support.

For news of the event check out -

To remember this horrific event Christ’s Church in Rwanda will have a Good Friday Service this Friday, 22 April at 7:00 p.m. We will use candles to symbolize the light of Jesus.

The Romans executed many people who they saw as threats. However, something was radically different about the death of Jesus. His family and friends were confused and grieved. What had happened to his promised kingdom?

Then three days later he rose from the dead. This is the reason for our Easter Celebration. We cannot escape suffering and death. However, Jesus’ resurrection confirms that death has no final mastery over man.

We are planning a special drama for both our 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. Sunday Services to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection this Easter Sunday.
I hope you will be able to join us.
