The renowned theologian Karl Barth says that there is one question that keeps people coming back to church week after week. That question is, "Is it true?" During the season of Easter, we boldly declare that it is true that Jesus Christ has risen from the tomb. But there's another question that we all must ask ourselves in light of the resurrection. If the resurrection is true, how should it change us and our lives?
You see, the message of Easter isn't meant to be packed away beside plastic eggs, empty baskets, and bags of plastic grass. The message of Easter is meant to be lived out everyday. So what if we lived like Easter happened? How would it change us? How would it change our community? How would it change the world? Come and join us for worship throughout the month of April as we explore these questions.
In Easter, we confess that the resurrection of Jesus has forever changed the way we view ourselves, our families, our friends, our enemies, the world we live in, and all that God created. On Wednesday nights at 6:00pm throughout the season of Easter, we will be exploring Easter confessions made throughout the Gospel of John, and discovering how these ancient confession still echo in our lives today.
The story of Easter turns everything we think we know upside down. Death is transformed to life. Hate is conquered by love. And brokenness is turned into beauty. On Sunday nights in April at 6:00pm, we will continue to examine how the God of the universe uses the broken pieces of our lives to reframe our purpose, turning our discarded hopes and dreams into something beautiful and useful - a mosaic in which God uses all our pieces.
