Sunday Sermon Series
“Jesus on the Loose!” On Good Friday, those who feared Jesus, thought that a cross would be the end. Just in case they ordered his body sealed in a tomb with soldiers guarding it. The cross, literal death, and a giant stone could not keep Jesus. On Easter morning, the resurrection proved that Jesus couldn’t be contained. During these Sundays in April we will explore what it looks like for Jesus to be loose in our world and to be loose in our very lives today.April 1st Surprise! John 20:1-18
April 8th Through Locked Doors John 20:19-31
