What a great Easter Sunday worship last week! It was a joy to worship with the church and celebrate all that Jesus has done. It's a shame that it has to end after only one day. Or does it? A couple of years ago, we began a tradition at CCC of celebrating the resurrection for a whole month after Easter Sunday and 2022 is no different. This year, we'll spend the next four weeks considering four fundamental truths that we learn from other resurrection stories in the New Testament. What do we learn from Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead? You'll need to join us Sunday to find out!
This is it! It's Easter Sunday! It's the best day of the year because in the empty tomb of Jesus Christ, we find hope that no matter what happens in this life, those who follow Jesus know that they will join with Jesus in his resurrection! This truth changes everything - so that in your darkest hour, you know that there is hope it won't always be like this. How much hope? You'll have to join us Sunday to find out.
As Christians have done for generations, this Good Friday, we will gather to worship and remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This Friday, April 17th at 7 pm, we will pause our regular lives to reflect on the truth that Jesus Christ died, even a death on the cross, to reconcile us to God for his glory. We hope you'll join us for this special time of worship and remembrance.
Over the past month, we discussed how life in Christ means we no longer need to live to sin but can now lead obedient lives. So, the question is, how does this really change anything? We went from not obeying the law because of sin and now we don't obey the law even though we are in Christ. The new manager is the same as the old manager. And that is not at all what Paul intends for us to understand. What does he want us to know? You'll have to watch this message to find out.
This week, we'll wrap up our time in Romans 6 with the last verse of the chapter. Romans 6:23 is a verse that many of us know and possibly know well. I promise if you are part of a church for any length of time, you'll hear this verse. But, what does it mean? That's what we'll answer in this message.
