On the first resurrection Sunday, nobody expected Jesus to rise again from the dead—not one person. Everyone had watched him die in a moment of darkness in despair. Any hope the disciples had about Jesus being the Messiah was buried along with Him. They all hid in the dark, consumed by discouragement. The devoted women traveling along with Him, weren’t expecting Jesus to rise from the dead. Religious leaders certainly hadn’t been expecting a resurrection either. Soldiers were placed there to guard the tomb so His body wasn’t stolen. 

The Sunday following the crucifixion, they went to the tomb to anoint His body with spices, but were shocked by what they discovered—Jesus wasn’t there. 

The darkest moment in history occurred when our Creator was crucified.
The brightest moment in history was when He rose from the dead.
After the darkness of night, came the dawn of a new day. 

Join us this Easter Sunday, as we explore how the darkness can lead us into the light.

7 Challenges Men Encounter
by Vince Miller

Daily, it’s getting more challenging to be a man. Our present culture is redefining manhood and confusing men in their pursuit of Biblical manhood. But how will you respond? What will you say and do when the world demands a response? Discover how to respond by rejecting passivity, accepting responsibility, leading courageously, loving unconditionally, living with integrity, serving humbly, and investing eternally. Let others see masculinity and manhood through the lens of Christ in your life with these seven characteristics and become a better man, husband, father, and leader.

The Book of Philippians
by Jo Saxton
The life Jesus invites us into when we follow him is one of sacrifice. But does sacrificial living mean the Christian life should be riddled with sorrow? Paul answers that question in his letter to the Philippians with a resounding no. Paul, and the Philippians with him, lived joyfully in the midst of persecution, prison, and poverty.
Throughout the series, Jo Saxton takes us through Philippians to encourage us to follow Jesus no matter what life throws at us. Through Paul’s words and example, learn how joy and sacrifice can go hand-in-hand.
