“Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.” (Luke 24:6-7)
Northstar joyfully declares the resurrection of Jesus as the centerpoint of our faith and hope. Easter Sunday in the 1st century marked the end of about 36 hours of mourning, confusion and silence of those who had hoped Jesus was the Messiah of Israel. His gory death had stunned and humiliated them.
However, with these words from angels to a frightened group of women on the morning after the Jewish sabbath, angels announced to the world what Christians through the millennia have believed in faith based on evidence. Jesus Christ rose from the dead!
Come celebrate his life with us this Sunday!
- Childcare is available at both services this week.
- There will be an Easter egg hunt between services at about 10:40.
