The Easter season captures a core rhythm of all human experience, that of death, waiting, and resurrection. Life begins here, with an understanding of those seasons and God’s gentle holding through it all.

Part I: The Hard Work of Blessing It All
- Date: 3/14
- Description: Blessing it all is NOT easy. The Easter story is filled with very human stories of both blessing and betrayal, of light and dark, of heaven and hell. Join us as we launch our four-part Easter series, learning how to hold those extremes in more life-giving ways.
Part II: The Grace of Exhaustion
- Date: 3/21
- Description: One author beautifully noted how we will all experience “the grace of exhaustion”, “the sacrament of stuck.” That is, paradoxically, a place where miracles often happen. But it entails a journey through a truth telling, that leads to the hope telling so core to the Easter message. Join us and bring your “stuckness” with you!
Part III: A Calm, Quiet Sea
- Date: 3/28
- Description: In the face of impending crisis and violence, Jesus remained throughout the Easter story both saddened and at peace, aware of what was occurring, yet consistently choosing a higher path. Join us as we look at the place of a “calm, quiet sea.”
Part IV: Easter Sunday
- Date: 4/4
- Description: Join as we celebrate Easter Sunday is this highly interactive, inspirational family service. May the joy we feel become the lives we live. On Easter Sunday, we celebrate that life begins here!
