Easter Invitation

This is the Lord for whom we have waited;
let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Dear Beloved Children of God:

Easter is the day for which we have waited, the day of the resurrection of the Lord; let us be glad and rejoice in the salvation he brings. We celebrate together at the end of Holy Week, at the end of Lent, at the end of waiting. We have waited long to see this day.

This is the day we celebrate: the Lord, our God, has vanquished death. He is triumphant, trampling down death with death. He brings life to all – and this life he brings in abundance.

Come celebrate with us this wonderful day – let even the night shine with the glory of the Lord's resurrection. This is good news for all people – the Lord brings life!

Our Easter Sunday celebrations include a traditional service at eight o’clock, and a more contemporary, family-oriented service at 10:30 in the morning.

Following the second service is the Easter Egg Hunt! All children are invited.

Be with us – and celebrate this joyous morning. And when you go forth from this place, take with you the good news, the news of the resurrection and life that are found in Christ Jesus.

You are witnesses of these things. And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.
