Join us as we relive the Passover Jesus shared with his disciples, at which he washed their feet, spoke a New Commandment, and gave us the Eucharist to remember his death until he comes again.
"In Jesus, God became vulnerable to us. God drew near to us—drew close enough to feel the kiss of Judas, to hear Peter’s denial, to bear our mocking, rejecting ‘crucify him!,’ to endure Pilate’s horrific death sentence. Instead of ‘sinners in the hands of an angry God,’ I like what William Paul Young says about the cross—it’s actually ‘God in the hands of angry sinners.’” Read more of Pastor Tanner’s reflection on Good Friday and join us for awhile at the foot of the Cross.
"Whenever two or more Christians gather, there is a Person who is also present with us. In his ongoing humanity, he bears the wounds he suffered, the cross he carried, a memory of the temptations he conquered, the touch of his mother’s hand on his face, a last meal with the ones he called friends, the sawdust and grime that covered his body after a day of labor with Joseph, turning Cana’s water into wine, his baptism by John in the Jordan, talking to Moses and Elijah on Tabor, raising Lazarus from decay near Bethany. Wherever the resurrected Jesus goes these experiences live on in him and through him.” Read more of Pastor Tanner’s mediation on Holy Week and enter the story of salvation.
“I am the one who raises the dead to life! Everyone who has faith in me will live, even if they die. And everyone who lives because of faith in me will never really die. Do you believe this?” Bring bells and join us for a celebration of the Resurrection—Christ’s and ours.
