This Easter, we are encouraging every member of LBC to once again remember our privilege and opportunity to speak the good news of Jesus to this world! So here’s the challenge …

Following our gathering this Sunday, you will find a free book, The Case for Easter, in one of the main hallways. Plan to pick up a copy, read it, and think through it for yourself. Then, after you have read it, plan to give it to a friend, neighbor, coworker, family member, or other acquaintance, and invite them to meet together with you to talk about it.
Also, you’ll want to be sure to invite them to join you on any given Sunday morning to meet a whole group of people who are convinced that Jesus is alive and have given their lives to live for Him! In fact, Easter Sunday is coming up on April 4 and would be a great opportunity to introduce them to LBC.
Learn about this Book
You seriously believe that a man who was dead 3 days came back to life? Not only that, you believe that man was actually God? In a world of advanced science, when so-called faith has given way to modern intelligence, who can take the story of the Bible seriously?
Wasn’t Jesus’ death a sham?
Was the tomb really empty?
Did the tomb ever have anyone in it in the first place?
Is there even credible evidence for (or against) the resurrection of Jesus?
There certainly is no small amount of questions and criticisms surrounding the claims of the Bible.
In the Case for Easter, long-time legal journalist and former atheist, Lee Stroebel, looks into history’s most compelling mystery, by retracing the findings that led him to faith and belief in Jesus. This Easter season, we are pleased to offer this small book for any of our church family who would be willing to read it. Through it, you can be equipped to better interact with prevalent questions and criticisms associated with the resurrection.

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins … But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:17, 20)
