It's almost here - the time of year where we stop to celebrate and reflect on the heart of the Christian faith. On Easter weekend, we gather to consider the implications of the news about Jesus for our lives today. You see, at the heart of Christianity is news about a person and an event. The person is Jesus Christ, and the event is his death and resurrection. If the news is true, if Jesus really died for our sin, and if God really raised him from the dead - then everything Jesus said and did and taught about God, about himself, about us, about the world we live in can be trusted. And that's good news because what Jesus says is that he loves us and wants to give meaning and purpose to our lives through our relationship with him.
So whether you're a believer or a skeptic or somewhere in between, we invite you to join us on Easter weekend to consider the implications of Jesus for your own life and faith.
Here's a brief breakdown of Easter Weekend Events and Service Times:
