Resurrection Celebration

The word “celebrate” has a very positive image in our minds. Who doesn’t want to go to a celebration? Even a “Celebration of Life” gathering (which is a nice way of saying “funeral”) offers the hope that something good will come out of the event.

Celebrations offer a needed break from our routine lives of work and fulfilling responsibilities when we can cut back, relax and just enjoy ourselves. But unfortunately, they are just that, infrequent breaks from the routine. In fact, if we celebrate too much, our pleasure tends to diminish.

There is, however, the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus which can’t be experienced enough. The Apostle Paul dedicates a whole chapter (15) in his letter to a group of Corinthian Christians to this subject and why we can’t get enough of it.

This weekend we’re going to be finishing our Resurrection sermon series with a celebration that doesn’t need to end – ever. Why don’t you join us?

Saturday evening worship: 6:00 pm
