Service: Easter 2018 Foolish?

From Thursday, March 29th, 2018 until Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Easter in 2018 falls on April Fools’ day.  Some may think this appropriate as the Easter message can seem like deep foolishness, a crucified king and talk of a resurrection.  Yet for Christians this story is the power and wisdom of God, showing both his very nature and how we are to live.

To not think about such things would be foolish.
