EASTER — Luke 24: 13-25 The Lord has risen!

On this Easter Sunday, Pastor Chris Garrison takes us to the road to Emmaus, Luke 24:13-35. Hope was filling the lives of Jesus' followers, and then when he was crucified they were devastated. They had lost hope. As travelers with Jesus, we don't always recognize Him in the brokenness of our lives. Are you hopeless and lost? Jesus will reveal himself to you...and you will never be the same! The Lord has risen, indeed!

Matthew 21:12-17 Pomp and Circumstances

Matthew 21:12-17 is the account of Jesus' triumphant ride into Jerusalem -- Palm Sunday. Pastor Chris Garrison asks, "Have you ever gotten stuck in your life?" Often we need to stop and ask for help. Jerusalem was stuck in their religion. Jesus came to show them a way out. Sometimes our idea of what is right clashes with Jesus' idea if what is right.  Jesus wants to wreck our "religion" in order to call us to true religion.

1 Timothy 3:8-13 How over What

1 Timothy 3:8-13 teaches us about deacons. A deacon is someone called to specific service in the church.  Interestingly, the passage does not point out what deacons are to do, but describes how they are to go about doing it. Pastor Chris Garrison calls us to live like servants, just as Jesus did and to remember that how we live is more important than what we are doing.
