Worshiping In-Person AND Online

We resumed in-person worship at Cross of Glory on Sunday, February 14. Online worship will continue, so those feeling more comfortable staying home can do so.

Because we’ll be limiting the number of worshippers to 50 and taking other COVID precautions to make our worship experience as safe as possible, things won’t look exactly like they did last March. (Who remembers what things looked like last March anyway.) However, we can be certain of this – God will continue to show up big time! And, of course, that’s true regardless of whether you’re in the building or watching via Facebook or YouTube live. God always shows up!

The Essential Jesus – Week 12 Readings & Questions

Attached is the list of readings for this week of our Essential Jesus sermon series — Since Easter is next Sunday, this week we’ll look at Jesus’ resurrection. 

We’ll be reading the resurrection account in all four gospels. Normally, we look at only one gospel story each year, so this will be a new one for me. As you read, you’ll notice that all the resurrection accounts include certain basics, but each one also includes additional facts unique to that writer. I used to be troubled by this, but now I find it really enhances the story.

April 4 – The Resurrection of Jesus

  1. Resurrection Thriller: Matthew 28:1-20
  1. A Short Story: Mark 16:1-20
  1. Walk to Emmaus: Luke 24:1-49
  1. Follow Me! John 20:1-21:25
  1. Paul’s Story: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11
