Second Sunday of Easter

Worship Times: 8:30 & 10:45 am
Christian Education for Children, Youth & Adults: 9:30am

Rev. Rene JensenScripture: Psalm 30

"Just act as if Sunday never happened,” encouraged the instructor at my spinning class this past Monday. And I thought “Wait? What??!! Act as if Easter never happened??!!” Then I realized she was talking about nutrition and exercise. That even if we had gorged on Easter dinner and chocolate bunnies and delicious desserts and then laid around all Sunday afternoon in a food coma, we could reset our eating and exercise routine.

Even after I realized what she was talking about, her words stayed with me. Too often we In the church act as if Easter Sunday never happened. As if once Easter is over, we can pack away the Easter message along with the stuffed bunnies and Easter baskets and fake grass. The truth is liturgically we are in the season of Easter, the fifty days stretching from Easter Sunday to Pentecost. The early church regarded every Sunday as a mini-Easter. We worship on Sundays because Sunday was the “third day”—the day of Jesus’ resurrection.

This Sunday we’ll be exploring how we might take Easter out of the “one day a year” box and begin to claim the magnificent promises of the resurrection all year long.

Celebrating our diversity, rejoicing in our unity, we welcome and affirm all children of God of any color, class, sexual orientation, age, gender, ability, or thought.

As members of the family of God, we share our beliefs, doubts, struggles, and growth.

Recipients of God’s boundless grace, forgiveness, and love, we in turn offer our gifts and invite the fellowship, gifts, leadership, and spirit of all who share God’s passion for shalom.
