Eastertide 2021

Courageous Celebration!

The Season of Eastertide is a season of courageous celebration for our church. Courageous celebration does not mean that we ignore the pain, despair, and death which surrounds us, but instead it means that we acknowledge simultaneously that all is not right with the world and the Jesus has conquered sin and death and he now sits on his throne. This is a season of awe and wonder, a season to develop eyes to see and ears to hear all the beautiful things God has done in and around us. Hopefully you’re finding ways to celebrate the resurrection each week throughout this season.
