Good Friday
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

April 19, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 19:1-30

On Good Friday the ways of God stand in stark contrast to the ways of humanity.  On this day the mystery of God’s wondrous love and power are displayed and suffering and death.  We will never fully understand the crucifixion but understanding is not the purpose of the day. On Good Friday we gather as God’s people to stand in awe and horror, in wonder and gratitude at the foot of the cross. 

Join us as we reflect on Jesus’ passion and gather around His table to remember and receive the gracious gifts he won for us on the cross.

The Living Nativity

Dec 1/2

There are so many amazing things about Christmas, but have you ever just felt just a little bit… awkward about it?  Even when we have the best of intentions, sometime the very things we do to celebrate Christmas can become uncomfortable distractions from what we know to be the marvelous story of Christ’s arrival. Maybe it was even a little bit awkward for Jesus, himself, to go from striding effortlessly across galaxies to being born in a simple stable.

This weekend we hope that you’ll join us as our own Extreme Kids and Pastor Jerry lead us into this season of anticipation and worship. It’s our prayer that we will both laugh about the awkward moments and be reminded of the miracle of incarnation; what it must have been like for Him, and what it means for us today!
