Easter Sunday we will gather as the sun rises at 6:30am in the courtyard for an early worship experience. Together we will remember that resurrection began in the dark. Together we will bring our questions. Together we will pray through words and fire. Together we will celebrate the Resurrection! All are welcome! Then at 10:00am we will again gather, this time in the sanctuary. We will hear the familiar story, sing the familiar truth that ”Christ the Lord is Risen Today!” We will discover our ”alleluias” and speak them with abandon! Together we will bask in the joy of the resurrection in the midst of our wonderings and questions. Come as you are, all are welcome!

Everything Changes
In our sermon series we are exploring how our brains were designed to be suspicious of change, and for good reason–homeostasis in good measure helps us thrive, protecting us from danger. But if we look closely at what the Creator set in motion, we find that change is the most constant part of life and necessary for animating our spirits as we find renewed purpose throughout life. Jesus advocated for changes that would keep us moving toward greater goodness!  “Everything Changes” John 12:20-26 In our scripture this week Jesus asks us to let go of life “as it is” in order to create and multiply the love that is eternal. What feels like the chaos, or recklessness, of change is the breaking-open of possibility and the sprouting of new life. This is what it means to follow the change-maker Jesus and serve his purpose of more love in the world. -Pastor Courtney
