You Can Rise!

​This Invitation card says it all!  We are excited about our Easter service this Sunday.  Not just because of the pretty dresses and new outfits, nor because of the family get-togethers taking place, but we are excited because Jesus made a way for us to RISE!
We have all experienced times where we have been knocked down, or weighted down with the struggles of this life.  Sometimes because of our personal failures, sometimes because of a sudden catastrophe that took place.
The writer Micah in the bible summed it up well when he said  Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I SHALL ARISE;" Micah 7:8
Easter shows that even from the grave there was a "Rising" or a resurrection!  Jesus had been slain by a jealous and hate-filled crowd.  His disciples didn't know what to do in His absence.  The casual followers were gone and it seemed like the dream was over...but then came Resurrection Sunday!
It had only just begun!
Come join us this Sunday and experience your new beginning!
