To the world he seemed like a defeated man: opposed and killed by his enemies, his followers scattered in fear. Yet three days after Jesus’ death he rose victorious from the dead. Nothing would ever be the same. The rest of eternity is now a victory march for the risen Christ. During Easter, we should not think of ourselves as passive observers in Christ’s victory. We are more than fans cheering for our favorite athlete! Rather, we are active participants in Christ’s triumph. Just as his death was our death, so also his life is our life. Buried with Christ in baptism, our life is now hidden with him on high. The victory is ours, now and forever. Easter is more than a day. It is an entire joyful season. The six solemn weeks of Lent are eclipsed by seven weeks of unbridled joy. These seven weeks correspond to the period of fifty days on the Jewish calendar between Passover and Pentecost. The Church reserves its highest praise for the Easter season. We do not merely watch from the sidelines as Christ marches in victory over sin, death, Satan, and hell. We join in the festal procession!

The good news of the risen Christ is bigger than a single day. The Easter gospel will continue to march across centuries and continents. Christ is Risen!  We are victorious! Join us this Easter season as we celebrate the victory that we have in Christ Jesus our Risen Lord.


Join us for Sunday School! 

If you are interested in participating in the Sunday School program, teaching, volunteering, or bringing your children, please contact Beth Kuschel with any questions that you might have.

We give thanks for the opportunity to gather together in public worship.  A few changes may remain, but we are excited that we are very much back to our traditional worship practices.

In light of recent CDC statements and out of love for our neighbor we simply ask you to be aware of different approaches that people might take to their own health and safety.  Trust in the Lord, respect the governing authorities, and show love to each other. 

Let’s celebrate being able to gather together again. Let’s celebrate the joy we experience as a family of believers when we worship together—fellowship with each other—serve together—and take the Lord’s supper side by side. Come and join us for worship as we give thanks to God and encourage one another in our love for God and for each other.

“I rejoiced with those who said to me, let us go to the house of the LORD.”

– Psalm 122:1

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.  Let us not give us meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:22-25.
