Current Series

UPDATED: 4/6/2020
The very first Easter was not in a crowded worship space with singing and praising.  On the very first Easter, the disciples were locked in their house.  It was dangerous for them to come out.  They were afraid.  (Sound familiar?) Alone in their homes, they wanted to believe the good news they heard that Jesus had RISEN, but it seemed too good to be true. Alone in their homes, they dared to believe that hope was possible, that Jesus was ALIVE!  
This year we might get to experience a taste of what that first Easter was like, still in our homes daring to believe that hope is on the horizon.  Then, after awhile, when it is safe for all people, we will come out, gathering together, singing and shouting the good news that God brings life even out of death, that love always has the final say! JOIN US from the comfort of your own home this Sunday, April 12th as we celebrate that Jesus is alive, that hope is not lost, and there is life in Christ!
