What Does the Resurrection Mean?

2000 years ago, a man named Jesus lived in and around Jerusalem.  He attracted followers by his personality, teachings, and miraculous healings.  Some people thought that he might lead an armed rebellion against the occupying Roman Empire.  Instead, he was arrested by the religious authorities, handed over to the Romans, and executed in the most degrading way available:  he was nailed to a cross and left there until he died.  He was buried and his followers fled, terrified.  Three days later, Jesus was seen alive.  Some doubted, but Jesus showed them the marks of the nails in his hands and feet.  Jesus said that he had defeated death.  What did this mean?  What does it mean for us?  The Church has been unpacking this gift for two thousand years.  Come and see what we have discovered!

The period from Easter until Pentecost is called the “Great 50 Days”. There is much that happens between these two events. We will explore all that we can at our two regularly scheduled services on Sunday at 8:00am & 10:30am. Easter tide blessings!
