Easter

"Why Easter is Such Good News!"

Rev. Dr. Stacey M. Cox

"Why Easter is Such Good News!"

How do we demonstrate that news is 'good'? The news may concern an upcoming event in town, or something that took place, it may concern a product or the arrival of a person. What makes it 'good'? First, it must be true and, additionally, we believe our friends and family and neighbors will be better off if they not only know about it but embrace it. Sunday, we'll be reminded of why Easter is such GOOD NEWS. Bring a friend and join us!

I Got You!

Rev. Dr. Stacey M. Cox

I Got You!

Easter falls on April 1st this year, which is also April Fool's Day. Pranks galore! Grapes covered in chocolate egg wrappers, dyed uncooked eggs, broccoli inserted in a plastic egg. Ready yourself for a big 'gotcha' day! Have fun with it, but remember: Easter is about Good News not 'gotcha news.' It's about three words that we all want to know. Join us this Easter Sunday for "I Got You!"

Resurrection Responses!

Rev. Stacey M. Cox

Resurrection Responses!

The resurrection of Jesus Christ demands a response. There's no getting around it. Fact is, it has always evoked a response. The Gospels reveal the resurrection of Jesus as a shocking intrusion that no one expected, least of all Jesus' frightened followers. They reacted as any of us would react today, if a recently departed loved one rang the doorbell of our home, greeting us with a smile and a hug: with fear and great joy. Many would doubt such a story. Mockers would emerge. Skeptics would demand proof. But such an encounter would be an epic game changer. 'Martha,' Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life . . . Do you believe this?' So, do you? Join us Easter Sunday for "Resurrection Responses!"
