Living the Resurrection
From 6:15–7:15 p.m. In the Heritage Room

Christ’s friends were utterly transformed by His resurrection. Their friendship, their work, and even their meals together took on a new meaning and purpose. The same can happen to us today.

Eugene Peterson, beloved pastor, scholar, and translator of The Message, takes you back to Jesus’ time so you can experience the Resurrection through the eyes of biblical witnesses. You’ll be a participant in the story, so its meaning and wonder can enliven your soul as never before.

Beyond the Broken Heart Grief Class
Tuesdays from 4–5 p.m., May 9–June 6, in the Heritage Room

We grieve because we love. How does the heart understand grief when it is broken by the death of a loved one? To survive and live forward, those who grieve must find answers. As we grieve, slowly we understand that grief is not a crisis of faith—it is a crisis of the heart. Here you will find comfort, guidance, and spiritual support on your journey through grief. The hope is that these resources will lead you toward renewed hope and fullness of life as you emerge at last from the darkness of grief into the light of new life, your soul restored through the steadfast love and faithfulness of God. Please register in the church office. For more information, please contact Mary Collier at (903) 753-4463
