A Message from Chaplain Mark Javery

Over the past month I have not been made aware of any in our membership who are hospitalized or diagnosed with a new illness. Still, so many in our membership have recently lost a beloved family member and many others continue their journey with chronic illnesses. I believe prayer truly matters so keep our NCYC family in your prayers and let them know they are in your thoughts. As our temperatures fluctuate daily it is apparent that spring is approaching. I have seen the return of various birds and even buds starting on a tree. Unfortunately, the weeds in my lawn have also started to show. Spring welcomes new life from the dead of winter. This is a reminder to me that the life-giving passion and the death of the Lord brings forth His glorious resurrection. I pray that this Easter the truth of Jesus’ resurrection refreshes your hearts and minds with new hope. Let us join creation in rejoicing in the Lord’s love for us. The perfect sacrifice Christ made for us, His blood shed on the cross for our sins, His resurrection, assuring eternal life in his presence…if only we believe.

May our risen Lord bless each of you and your families with good health, happiness, and joy.
