Churches will celebrate the resurrection of Christ, and for good reason. But what if the resurrection is inviting us - even challenging us - to allow the life of Christ to rise up within us, for the sake of the world? His story didn’t end in the grave. Neither will yours.
Easter is a time to share the hope we have in Jesus. What better time to step out and invite you friends, family, coworkers and community to experience the Gospel and to hear about the life changing love of Christ.
For generations, people had come and gone. Nations had risen and fallen. Hopelessness prevailed, until an ancient promise was fulfilled. Jesus came to to shine light in the darkness. He carried our transgressions on the cross and defeated sin and death so we could have life. He has overcome the grave. He has defeated death. He is risen!
What happens after we celebrate that Jesus conquered death and rose from the grave? Matthias stepped in as the 12th disciple after Judas was gone, and as he reflects on witnessing Jesus’ ministry over the years, he makes a declaration that he will love God, love others, and that he will lead others to Jesus.
This final mini-movie in the Who Do You Say I Am? Easter bundle gives congregations a chance to explore what comes next after Jesus has risen? Now that we know Jesus is the Messiah, what will we do about it?
At the cross, they thought it was over. Jesus was dead. Hope was lost. Love was dead. Three days later, all of that changed. Jesus was victorious. Sin and death were defeated and hope was restored. Jesus couldn’t stay in the grave, because love is alive!
Start your Easter Celebration with this call to worship and reflect on all that changed when Christ rose from the grave.
Sin had left us for dead. It had separated us from God and stolen our Hope. But God loved us. Through Jesus, sin has been conquered, death has been defeated and hope has been restored. The grave is empty, the stone has been rolled away…Hope has risen!
Lazarus missed Palm Sunday. Watch as Mary and Lazarus talk about what the day was like….the day that the King of Kings rode through Jerusalem on a donkey.
Scripture is the centerpiece of this powerful video, taking us from the cross to the grave to the resurrection. It’s time to celebrate and remember the work of Jesus, the gift of grace and the incredible mercy given to us by the Father. He is not here…He is risen!
Zombies, Chalupa’s and Tombs…oh my! Journey with Tommy and Eddie as they imagine what it must’ve been like to watch Lazarus walk out of the tomb. Sometimes it takes death to remind us what “abundant life” is all about.
