From the far star points of his pinned extremities,
cold inched in—black ice and squid ink—
till the hung flesh was empty.
Lonely in that void even for pain,
he missed his splintered feet,
the human stare buried in his face.
He ached for two hands made of meat
he could reach to the end of.
In the corpse’s core, the stone fist
of his heart began to bang
on the stiff chest’s door, and breath spilled
back into that battered shape. Now

it’s your limbs he comes to fill, as warm water
shatters at birth, rivering every way.

Come celebrate with us the work of Christ on the cross and His resurrection on Easter morning. We will gather for prayer, fellowship and worship, and invite you to join us for all of the morning events:

* 8:00 a.m. Sunrise Service – A time to pray and celebrate the resurrection of our Savior
* 9:00 a.m. Easter Breakfast – We will enjoy our fellowship together over a splendid breakfast
* 10:30 a.m. Worship Service – “He is risen! He is risen indeed!”

“I accept the resurrection of Easter Sunday not as an invention of the community of disciples, but as a historical event. If the resurrection of Jesus from the dead on that Easter Sunday were a public event which had been made known…not only to the 530 Jewish witnesses but to the entire population, all Jews would have become followers of Jesus.” Pinchas Lapide, Orthodox Jewish

You are invited to join us for Tenebrae on Friday, April 18 at 7:00 pm. During this Good Friday service we will meditate on the events leading up to the death of our Savior, through scripture and song, and prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday.
