Meeting the Risen Christ
Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. Luke 24:13-16
We continue with the Easter Season, the time according to the United Methodist Church that: …also known as Eastertide or the Great Fifty Days, begins on Easter Day and ends 50 days later on Pentecost. Focusing on Christ’s resurrection and ascension and the sending of the Holy Spirit (Pentecost), Eastertide is the most joyous and celebrative season of the Christian year. We celebrate the good news that in Christ’s death and resurrection we, and all creation, are continually being made new by God’s love and saving grace.
Last Sunday our new sermon series Lessons of Easter kicked off with part one called “Doubting Thomas.” This week Pastor Steve continues with part two: “Meeting the Risen Christ.”
Our 9 AM service is the traditional service and our 11 AM Contemporary Service features the music of our Praise Band.
