Easter Sunday is one of the most important days in the Christian year! On this day, for almost 2,000 years, Christians all around the world have celebrated the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, and our own spiritual rebirth. The introspective joy of Easter morning transforms us. With Christ’s triumph over death and the grave, God’s promise of eternal life in Him is fulfilled. We live anew because our Savior lives. This assurance brings with it a personal and spiritual awareness of the depth and scope of God’s profound love and grace for each of us, no matter who we are or where we have been.
We invite you to join us on Easter Sunday, April 5th, at 8 am, 9.30 am or 6.30 pm for one of our three vibrant and joyful Easter services. Filled with beautiful music, each service centers upon the heart of the Good News, that our Savior lives and loves us. On this day we’ll begin an exciting, new, twelve week sermon series entitled A.D. The Bible Continues. We will journey along with the NBC TV series of the same name, exploring what the followers of Jesus did with their new lives. We’ll also examine how they took their faith into the world, despite rejection, persecution and martyrdom. Learning more about the acts of the disciples and the early church will challenge each of us to consider what we will do with our new life; and to think about how the beauty of God’s creation made manifest in each of us can blossom and shine, through our words and actions, to bring to fruition God’s Kingdom here on Earth.
As we go forth from Easter Sunday, we’ll see again and again this pattern which our Creator has woven into His world: from death back to life, from being dormant to an awakening, from a shell of our old selves into a new creation, just as occurred in a garden on that first Easter.
