New Beginnings


 

“He is risen!”

That was how a member of the early church would greet another member, to which the member would respond,

“He is risen indeed!”

Today, in the church, this is a customary greeting around Easter. In our church we typically start our Resurrection Sunday service with this greeting. For the early church though, this was a greeting every day of the year, that’s how important the early church considered the resurrection to be. Jesus’ resurrection was so important and central to their faith that early church members celebrated it every time they saw each other.  Do we look on the resurrection in the same way today?

I hope you are planning to join us this weekend as we remember and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus!

On Friday we will take time to remember the great sacrifice that Jesus made for you and me.  Our Good Friday service will begin at 10:30 am with singing and conclude with a time of silent reflection and communion as we reflect on scripture and words spoken.

Then on Sunday at 10:30 we will celebrate the resurrection with music, baptisms and the story of Thomas’ encounter with the risen Christ in John 20:24-29.  Together we are going to discover what the early church knew; your life hinges on the resurrection.

He is risen!
