He’s alive! There are a lot of extraordinary events that have happened in history but nothing quite like this. Jesus gets up after being dead for days and then shows himself to people. Some may have doubts about whether it even happened or are wondering what it all means. Easter was never intended to be a mystery but an invitation to a new life.

Jesus leads His disciples on an uncharted course to a destination that they never expected, and He challenges us to do the same.
History bears witness to many different kinds of movements in our society. Most movements came about because of war, violence, and oppression.

Join the Movement in 2020.
It seems like everywhere we look, we see darkness. We see it on the news, in our nation, in our communities and in our homes. How do we respond? To whom do we turn when it seems like darkness is everywhere? Isaiah 9:1-7 reminds us that God will not let us remain in darkness. God shines light into our darkness by sending Jesus Christ.
