In our American culture, this coming weekend is without question one of, if not, the biggest weekend of the entire year! It is Super Bowl Weekend! It’s a big game for the players! In fact, each player on the winning team receives $88,000.00 while each player on the losing team will receive half that much ($44,000.00)! It’s also big for the fans and viewers. Last year's game was the most watched program in television history with 151.6 million viewers in the United States. The game was broadcast to 230 countries and territories in 34 different languages. Broadcasters from 14 countries called the game live from Raymond James Stadium. This year’s contest will be even bigger! I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to what I hope will be a very good game with a lot of entertaining commercials.
As excited as I am about the game, I am equally excited about the morning of the game! We will have our regular schedule this Sunday morning with our Classic Service beginning at 9am in the Chapel and our Contemporary Services beginning in the Gospel Center at 9am and again at 10:30am. Because it is the first Sunday of the month, we will also be celebrating communion this Sunday. We will continue our study through the life of the Old Testament Character, Joseph, as we see him prepared and promoted. Along with great worship we also will have a very fun and entertaining “Game Show Skit” to catch everyone up to speed on what has happened in Joseph’s life so far in the series.
I am looking forward to seeing you this Super Sunday here at E-Free!
