Church for Holy Humor Sunday, April 19, 2020

For Holy Humor Sunday, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “Surprise!,” based on Luke 24:13-32. After the resurrection, many friends of Jesus failed to recognize him. Maybe he just wasn’t what they expected? When they do see what Jesus is up to, they are surprised and delighted. Do we recognize Jesus right now? How is Jesus surprising and delighting us, even in the midst of pandemic?

Holy Humor Sunday is a chance to celebrate the resurrection of Christ with joy. The devil never knew what hit him! To help us get in the mood, the puppets share some giggles, and we’ve got jokes sent in by our congregation.

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