Easter Sunday

  • Laurel Hills Community Center

“Easter still matters, but as a recurrent energy of emergence detached completely from the thought or imagining in mind of Jesus’s intervention in history. That’s shriveled and puny.” -” W.S. Di Piero, essayist and poet.

Christians claims that a man executed on the cross of Pontius Pilate rose from the dead three days later. They don't think Resurrection is a spring festival, but a historical event. Did it happen?

The Gospel is The End of Racism

For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new people from the two groups. Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death. - Ephesians 2:14-16

If the Gospel has nothing to say about the racism that divides our society, then the Gospel has nothing worth saying. The power of the Gospel rests in its ability to shatter hostilities and reconcile enemies.

We believe the Spirit of Jesus is here to empower His disciples to live by His new reality of peace and reconciliation.

Join us as we learn and converse about the Gospel and its power to end racism.

Join us as we learn to be a community that lives out the Gospel

All young people (3rd grade and up) will worship with us and receive the communion together.

Pray for the service, and talk with your young people why we do communion together:

  • It is what Jesus commanded of us
  • It is what Jesus did with his twelve so it connects us to that last supper
  • It is what the church has been doing from the very beginning
  • This practice unites all the churches as it remembers that it is Jesus, the host, who unites us
  • When we receive it we are repenting of our sins and accepting Christ's forgiveness

Advent Sync

Explanation of Advent Sync the first seven minutes of the sermon

Happy New Years!

In the Christian calendar, we are already in the New Year as Advent begins the year for Christ’s birth has cataclysmically restarted human history. As the birth of Christ split human history and reset the counting of years, so the celebration of Christ’s birth begins the counting of the year.

I pray Advent will begin a new year in your life and in our life together as the Church. We will welcome the new year by syncing our lives through practicing the same simple spiritual exercises.

We will pray the same prayer in the same hours, and read the same scripture from the lectionary. When we read from the lectionary we are joining the world-wide Church. Today, in Afrikaans and in Chinese, in Russian and in Swahili, all the brothers and sisters of our Christ-family will be reading the same Psalm. God’s Word unites us. Our prayers bonds us.

So decorate the trees, and order those gifts and wrap them up good but don’t get too wrapped up about them. Prepare your heart for Christ. Christ has come and started a new epoch. Christ is coming and will establish eternity. Let’s get ready.

Early Morning 6am | praying the First Psalms 

Morning 9am | praying the Morning Prayer and the Weekly Prayer
“Lord, thank you for making me your family.”

Noon 12pm | praying the Lord's Prayer

Afternoon 3pm | praying the Romans 8 prayer

Early Evening 6pm | praying the Serenity Prayer

Evening Prayer 9pm | the 2nd Palms and the Evening Prayer

Daily Office Lectionary | More Prayers | Life Group Meetings Notes


Symbolism Behind the Advent Wreath and Candle-Lighting

The word Advent comes from a Latin word meaning “coming”. It symbolizes the expectation of the coming of the Messiah (Savior) in three ways: Past-the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, Present-His coming into our hearts, Future-His coming again and of God’s Kingdom.

An Advent wreath with five candles are lit weekly. The wreath is of evergreen branches symbolizing eternal life.

The candles symbolize Light and Life. The purple candles symbolize Christ’s Sovereignty. Purple was a rare and expensive color in the time of Jesus’ birth. Only kings and noblemen could afford it. The pink candles symbolizes the love and friendship of Christ.

Each week has a symbolic focus.

  • Week 1 – the HOPE we have in Christ when we allow Him to lead us out of darkness into light.
  • Week 2 – the PEACE Christ came to bring.
  • Week 3 – the Love, symbolized by the Pink candle, of God in Christ.
  • Week 4 – our JOY as the day of celebration draws close. We are reminded that a life with Him is one full of Joy!

On Christmas Day we light the Christ-Candle, declaring Christ, the light of the world, has come and will come!

You were created for God, and for the worship and mission of God! And God is calling you. So come as you, no matter your situation. God wants to forgive you and give you a New Life!

Praying the Lord's Prayer

Our dear Lord, who has given to us and taught us to pray the Psalter and the Lord’s Prayer, grants to us also the spirit of prayer and of grace so that we pray with enthusiasm and earnest faith, properly and without ceasing, for we need to do this; he has asked for it and therefore wants to heave it from us. To him be praise, honor, and thanksgiving. Amen”
— Martin Luther

We will pray for God's Purpose to be accomplished on our Public Opening Service by praying through the Lord's Prayer.
