Welcome to virtual worship for this, the 3rd Sunday of Easter!
We hope you will enjoy the music, readings, children’s message, sermon, prayers, elements of liturgy, and a special postlude featuring some of the members of our Cherub and Covenant Choirs!
Christ isn’t just meant for people who have it all together, but rather for people fleeing parts of their lives that they just don’t understand.
