Worship for Sunday, April 11, 2021 (Holy Humor)

For Sunday, April 11, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “Poke!” based on John 20:19-31. Like Thomas the doubting disciples, people poke and prod, sometimes to provoke and sometimes to prove. Nudge, nudge – “Get it?” Resurrection was the ultimate poke in the eye for Satan. Jesus rolls with the punches and elbows us: “I’m alive! Get it?!”

We celebrate Holy Humor Sunday with good clean jokes and plenty of fun! Dizzy Lizzy and the puppets share some church humor, and we’ve got fun songs and special music too!

Sandy Koster, Doug Huggett, Renee Kastenschmidt, and Kelly Maloney Wang lead hymns at the 8:30a Classic service. Zoe de Boer, Deb Boehde, Melissa de Boer, Pam Klinger, and Cathy Novy lead music at the 11:00a Praise service.
