Easter Sunday

ONLINE ONLY–April 12th Sunrise Service at 6:31 am


“Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance” (John 20:21).

This year’s sunrise service will be held on the church grounds on the river bank. Join us as we follow Jesus’ friends to the empty tomb.

Following the early service, hot drinks and breakfast snacks and food will be offered for free until 9:30 am before the normal 10 am worship service.
Bring your own lawn chair, please.
ONLINE ONLY–April 12 Resurrection Sunday Worship Service at 10 am

“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you… (Luke 24:5-6).

The angel’s question redirects us in six ways:

  1.   From death to life 
  2.  From the cross to the resurrection
  3.  From feeling to Scripture
  4.  From current events to God’s providence
  5.  From the Law to the Gospel
  6.  From grief to joy

Join us as we celebrate in scripture and song the event that reorients all of life!

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead….” (1 Peter 1:3-4)
