He is Risen!
On that first Easter morning women went to the tomb to finish anointing Jesus’ body. To their surprise, the stone at the entrance had been moved and the tomb was empty. Even more astonishing, Jesus himself appeared to Mary Magdalene, to Peter, and later to all the disciples. This is the most important day of the year for Christians, for we worship and serve a risen Christ! In this we find hope for re-birth, a second chance at an abundant and meaningful life now and for eternity. Thanks be to God!
Every Easter we have the privilege of participating in a special offering, One Great Hour of Sharing. Your gifts restore hope, feed the hungry and empower the oppressed. What better way to put our faith into action during this Year of One than to make a gift to these lifegiving ministries?
In person outdoor worship:
COVID and weather permitting, we will joyfully gather to celebrate the risen Christ at 11 am on the south lawn of the church. As is our tradition, we will “flower the cross,” so plan to bring something from your garden or a purchased bloom to add to the vibrant display. “He is risen, He is risen indeed!” Bring chairs or a blanket to sit on. Masks must be worn at all times and social distancing observed.
Joyful, joyful we adore Thee, God of Glory Lord of Love! Join us online on Easter Sunday for glorious music and inspiring words of hope. Christ IS risen! Let us rejoice and be glad!
