A Sermon Series for the 50 Days of Easter
The days between Easter and Pentecost are for us as Christians a time when we contemplate our response to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What do we do now? What is the nature of our consideration? Where will this walk with Jesus take us from here?
Romans 8:18-21 will anchor us as we move through these seven Sundays, culminating with Pentecost on May 31st.
Romans 8:18-21 (NRSV)
18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; 20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
The desire for this season of preaching and teaching is to gain fresh understanding on not only the event itself, but the power of resurrection in our daily lives. Are we willing to submit all our experiences to the work that God wants to do in and through us? Do we believe that our present “sufferings” may be the very ground from which something new is being created and revealed in us? How shall we profess this living hope together?
Join us for worship (virtually, for now) as we offer our thanks and praise to God and allow the Word to speak into our lives More than just digital transactions, we believe that these ‘gatherings’ still hold the power for divine transformation. So again, we say, Easter people, raise your voices! Whatever it takes!
