Sermon by Dr. Daniel Glaze
“Embracing Thomas (and his Doubt)”
Whenever we gather as a people committed to worshiping the Risen Christ, Easter continues. Whenever we create safe environments for the honest expression of doubt, Easter continues. Whenever people like Thomas don’t quite “get it” but commit to coming back week after week, Easter continues.

Easter Sunday
Service of Worship
11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary

The service is marked by joy and emphasizes the Easter theme of new life. This year we will worship together at 11:00 a.m. The service will be preceded by music beginning at 10:30 a.m. Sunday School classes are planning their own gatherings before worship. If you’d like to attend a class that morning, please ask one of the greeters for assistance or contact Rev. Libby Grammer.

Sermon by Dr. Daniel Glaze
“A New Day is Dawning”
We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus—and that is incredible news! Yet we miss so much of the story if the celebration stops there. Christ’s resurrection means we too can rise–from all those places death has us in its grip.

John 20:1-18
