May 15, 2022 | The Fifth Sunday of Easter

Easter initiates a new day. It anticipates a new heaven and a new earth. The risen Christ is making all things new. In the mystery of holy baptism God has made new people of us. Today Jesus invites us to see everyone in a new light—through the lens of love.

On Easter Sunday, we gathered to rejoice and give thanks for the empty tomb. It has been a very difficult two plus years of the pandemic that has changed the way we have worshipped. We are at a place now that we have been able to move to something that we consider close to normal worship but we still have some parts of our worship to work on moving forward. We hope you will all find your way back to worship as you are able and join in the celebration of our Lord's resurrection. Each Sunday is a time of celebrating Easter resurrection. We gather in the name of the Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to rejoice in the resurrection. We are now mask optional and encourage anyone who wants to wear a mask to do so. We still consider everyone's safety to be at the top of our worship life. He is risen, he is risen indeed, alleluia.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
