The resurrection of Jesus changes everything. The Bible even states that “if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” Yet often we only focus in on the resurrection of Jesus for one Sunday a year (Easter Sunday).
But, historically the church has celebrated Easter, not as a day, but as a season that lasts for 6-weeks. So at Riverside this year, we are going to do the same. We will be focusing these 6-weeks of the Easter Season on the resurrection of Jesus and how it yields amazing life for us both now and forever. After these 6-weeks we will continue to follow the historical church calendar and spend 3-more-weeks looking at the Ascension of Jesus, Pentecost, and the Trinity.
Resurrection Life, that is what we will be spending the next 9-weeks looking at together this spring!
