“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly want to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Beginning with the Sunrise service at 6:00 a.m. in our Chapel, we are going to celebrate for over 5 hours Jesus' victory over death. All are welcome to join us as the first news 'arrives' that Jesus is not in the tomb and our youth will lead us in this initial celebration. At 7:00 a.m. we will go to the lower level to partake of a delicious egg casserole breakfast for a free-will donation and enjoy some wonderful fellowship. We will then head to the Sanctuary for the 10:00 a.m. victory celebration with our Chancel Choir, Mark Nelson Brass, JuBellation Handbell Choir, and organ. The Strife is Over!

Hear about Peter's denial of Jesus, Pilate's washing of his hands of Jesus, and the soldiers' torture of Jesus during Jesus' final 24 hours on earth. Held in our street-level chapel, all are welcome to come and pray for forgiveness.
