Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Last week, we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. This week, for the Second Sunday of Easter, this celebration continued with a message, "Hearts on Fire" from Luke 24:13-35. This is a story of two disciples and their encounter with Jesus on the road to Emmaus. Learn more about this in Christopher's Chat. We also invite you to watch our worship service when it is uploaded to YouTube this week.
