“Out of the Darkness, and Into the Light”

“Out of the Darkness, and Into the Light”
When we gather at the Bell Tower for our Sunrise Service early on Easter morning, Pastor Chris will bring a message titled “Out of the Darkness and Into the Light.”  And Chris’s son Nathan will sing “I Will Rise” at the end of Chris’s message.  Please be sure to join us at 6:45 in front of the church as we begin our celebration of Jesus’ resurrection!
“I Have Overcome the World.”
After the Sunrise Service we will head indoors and hold three services throughout the morning…8:00…9:45…and 11:00.  At this point, the 9:45 service is the only one that has reached our seating capacity limit, but seats remain at 8:00 and 11:00.  Please email the church office ( to reserve seating for either of these two services.
Pastor Shaun will be bringing the message and will have us look closely at words that Jesus spoke to His disciples just hours before His arrest.  Jesus told them, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”  (John 16:33)
We will take time to acknowledge the trouble that all of us face as we make our way in this world.  But we will see that because of Easter, because of Jesus’ resurrection, trouble doesn’t win.
Be sure to join us this Sunday for one or more of the services…either In-Person or over Live Stream.  We aim to live stream the Sunrise Service, as well as the 8:00 and 9:45 service.  
Go HERE at 6:45, 8:00, or 9:45 in order to view the live stream.

Finally, just a reminder of our standard protocol:
  • If you find yourself in a high-risk category, it would be wise to view the service via the live stream.
  • Please remain at home if you do not feel well or if you have been around someone who has not been well, and again, be sure to join us by viewing the live stream.
  • We will continue to ask that everyone (except for health reasons) wear a mask as you enter and as you leave.  
  • Please continue to practice physical distancing at all times.
  • Even as we are seated in every other row, please go out of your way to establish a generous amount of distance between yourself and others when choosing your seat. The room is large enough for us to spread out quite a bit.
  • While we encourage physical distancing, this does not mean that we discourage socializing with one another. Please greet and engage with one another from a safe distance as you come and go, even as you sit in your seat. 
  • While we don’t often have people sitting in the front row or rows, it would probably be wise to avoid the rows close to the front due to the proximity of those singing on stage. 
  • When using the restroom, please wash your hands thoroughly. Please continue to make use of the hand sanitizer that we have in the foyer and in the Auditorium.  
Thank you, and we’re looking forward to worshipping Jesus with you this Sunday!
