Passion 2023: Join us For Easter!

Passion 2023
“The Blood of the Lamb”

“Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!” Very soon, we will once again be celebrating a central event for our faith and the blessed hope of believers – the Resurrection! To help us prepare for this exciting time, we want to make sure we “keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2). As we ponder our the last day of Jesus before He died as an eternal sacrifice, we will ask God to bring us deeper into Christ by faith, especially for some of the upcoming events.


Confirmation Sunday
As we move into the Passion season, our Confirmands present their memory work, and we look ahead to what Christ has done in worship.

Palm Sunday
Our Sunday school students lead us in palms and singing “Hosanna!” from Mark 11, there will be professions of faith, and we look for how Jesus’ blood brings its power in worship.
