Easter services may be over; but the good news is that we continue to experience the risen Christ! Jesus is loose in the world! And that means it is not business as usual, as Jesus' followers discovered. As Jesus' followers today, how does this risen Jesus impact our lives today? Join us this Sunday as we reflect on what it means for us.
There are people in our neighborhood who do not have a church home. There are people around us who are in need of the healing grace of Christ. God is calling each of us to reach out to them. Please be in prayer. How is God asking you to reach out? I look forward to worshiping this you this Sunday.
Yours in Christ,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! To all who made Holy Week and Easter Sunday meaningful and joyful experiences. Many of you did "double" and "triple" duty to insure that services flowed smoothly, people were welcomed, and hospitality was generously offered. You truly revealed the body of Christ in your selflessness and love. Thank you, all!
