Look Up

Three days had passed. The women went to the tomb to anoint Jesus’ body, according to custom. No doubt the journey to the tomb was heavy. Perhaps they approached with heads lowered in defeat and grief. But then they looked up and it changed their lives. The barrier that they thought would be there was gone and what they discovered instead was life. Will we look up? Will we look up from our complacency, apathy, fear and depression about “the way things are” and be filled with the promise of new life and hope yet again?

Rev. Elbert Dulworth

Vesper Service Thursday

Thursday at 7 p.m. on Facebook

Unwind, relax, reflect, and connect with God.

Trust & Intimacy in Prayer

Sometimes, prayer can just be words spoken, without much feeling or focus. God has more for you in prayer. Through developing trust and intimacy with God, your prayer life can be recharged and refocused. You can learn to benefit from a new found closeness to God through prayer.
