Easter Sunday: Hope is Raised – Sanctuary

Hear the good news – Jesus Christ has risen from the dead!  Hallelujah!  The hope of Easter is not limited to God’s ability to DO the amazing, it also includes God’s hope that we will respond to the amazing.  God is challenging us to take a risk in our every day lives and live for […]
