Last week, we celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. In conjunction with this celebration, Pastor Christopher has started a new series, "Resurrection Living". Now that Easter is over, the work has just begun! Easter wasn't so much an ending as it is a beginning. With the revelation of Resurrection and its power - it was up to the disciples then, and now to demonstrate it - the power to overcome death and sin, the power of love, the power of hope!
Please join us every Sunday at 10:30am as we rediscover and experience living out the Resurrection. Today's Scripture reading was from Luke 24:13-49.
Here are some more announcements from the First Reformed Church:
