A Look at Our Eastertide Sermon Series

Early Christian writers sometimes called Sunday “the 8th day”—because on Easter Sunday, Jesus rose again and started a new Creation. The old Creation came in 7 days, and the new Creation started on the 8th. It’s like finishing the alphabet and moving on from Z to AA.

In this new Creation, which we who follow Jesus start to experience now, Sin no longer has the power to enslave us and Death is defeated. When you know you're going to live forever, the terrifying dread that everyone tries not to think about gets lifted off.  You and I will know life and love in Christ forever.  

To help us live in this new Creation (even as we still groan for it to come in completeness), in the season of Easter, the church focuses on (a) Jesus' resurrection appearances and (b) his key teachings to his followers. We’re calling our series, “What Jesus Gives His Followers”:

  • April 27: “Reassurance--When We Doubt,” Sandy Richter

  • May 4: “Restoration--When We Blow It,” Fr. Kevin

  • May 11: “Protection--When We are Pulled Away,” Fr. Bill Richardson

  • May 18: “A New Command--When We Don’t Know What to Do,” Fr. Kevin

  • May 25: "Peace—When We are Afraid,” Fr. Kevin

  • June 1: “Unity—When We Can't Get Along," Dcn. Josh Steele
