A Message from Pastor Rodney:
April 27, 2014
For many, Easter is a day, usually in April, sometimes in March. We get dressed up, buy special dresses, received baskets of candy, and spend time with family. All of these things are wonderful (the candy might not be so healthy, but …). But Easter is so much more. In the Church, Easter is a season. We celebrate for 50 days, seven Sundays looking to the significance and life changing joy of Jesus’ resurrection. In fact, we really understand that every Sunday is a celebration of Easter. We come together to rejoice that Jesus is our risen and living Lord. So you might say, Easter is our defining reality as a Church.
This Easter Season we are going to study the book of Acts, as we try to uncover some basic characteristics of what we are calling an Easter Church—that is a community of believers defined by Jesus’ resurrection. This week our focus turns to the first identifying characteristic: We are witnesses to the resurrection. What is a witness? What are the responsibilities of a witness? What difference does a witness make? There are a number of great questions that we can ask about this first characteristic, and there are many answers we can give. If you are curious about a life defined by Easter, if you wonder what being a witness is all about as a Christian, join us this Easter season. We worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Everyone is always welcome!
Jesus said, "Come to me all you who are weary & carry heavy burdens, & I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 NLT
