Worship with us as we celebrate the wonder and mystery of the empty tomb and the good news of Jesus' resurrection! There is always hope for new life, even when all around us we see death.
The tomb was found empty by women who came to prepare his body for burial; resurrection proclaims life in the midst of death! Jesus appeared to disciples who were deep in sorrow, despairing over an unjust death; resurrection proclaims hope in the midst of hopelessness! Jesus showed up with the disciples who were locked in an upper room in Jerusalem, fearing the harm that might come to them by stepping beyond the doors; resurrection proclaims courage in the midst of fear!
And on Easter morning, the Risen Christ will be revealed to us, even in the midst of our present pandemic, because resurrection bursts forth even during times such as this.
Christ is risen! Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Outdoor Decorated Cross On the corner of 65th & Freya throughout Holy Week
We have set up the large wooden cross (which every year on Easter Sunday we fill with daffodils as a sign of resurrection and new life) outside on the southwest corner of the property (corner of Freya & 65th), near the original front door to the Sanctuary. Throughout the week, the cross will be decorated to reflect each day of Holy Week -- Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter.
If you find yourself out to get groceries or run errands, we encourage you to drive past the church each day to see the cross and offer a prayer -- and especially on Easter Sunday, as the cross will be filled with the beautiful daffodils that we love so dearly from our Easter celebrations. We hope that seeing the cross reflecting this season will be a blessing to our congregation and our community and a reminder of the hope and promise of Christ.
