Easter is not confined to one Sunday a year! We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus all through the year as the foundation of our faith. Paul says in I Corinthians 15 that if Jesus is not risen from the dead, then our preaching is in vain, our faith is in vain, and we are of all men most to be pitied.
But, Paul says. But now Christ has been raised from the dead! He stands in victory over sin and the grave!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine,
Bought with the precious blood of Christ!
–In Christ Alone
Join us, as brothers and sisters who have been bought with the blood of Christ, to worship our risen Lord this Sunday! Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Good Friday Service
Friday, April 14, 6:30 pm
At our Good Friday observance, we will use images to realize the full story of what Jesus suffered for us: the cup and the bread (symbols of His body and blood), the silver coins of Judas’ betrayal, the robe and crown of thorns used to mock Him, the nails that held His hands and feet to the cross, and the shroud that wrapped His body in the tomb.
Our service will begin with the joy and triumph of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, when the crowds greeted Him with palms and shouts of “Hosanna!” We’ll observe the Lord’s Supper just as He instructed us on that Passover night—in remembrance of Him. Then we’ll follow Him through His betrayal by Judas, to the Garden of Gethsemane, to His trial, to the cross. Finally, we’ll end in darkness and silence, leaving Him in the tomb.
