Church for Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020

Wesley Bros: Easter COVID-19For Easter Sunday, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “All Shook Up,” based on Matthew 28:1-1. Thunder and lightning, very, very frightening! In Matthew’s account of Jesus’ death and resurrection, the earth moves. How has Christ shaken our world and shifted the earth under our feet? How do Christians celebrate and live resurrection during a pandemic?

To celebrate Easter, we’ll join in the great shout of acclamation: “Christ is risen! Christ is risen indeed!” Many of you sent in videos to join in the shout virtually. We can’t wait to share them! We’ll also hear special Easter music by the World Methodist Choir. Jessica Gobel has a special Easter kid message, and Zoe de Boer will share a God Moment about her experience “On Mission.”

Hymns at the 8:30a Classic service will be accompanied on organ and piano by Sandy Koster. Zoe leads the music team at the 11:00a Praise service.
