We have journeyed through the long, lean days of Lent.   Beginning April 8, we begin the Easter sermon series, “You Shall Be My Witness”.  Lent is forty days, but Easter is fifty days and in a sense, eery Sunday is Easter, because of Christ!  During these fifty days, we will ponder all the experiences that people have with the Risen Christ.  Jesus changed lives and through those changed lives, He transformed communities.  Our vision at First is, “changing lives-transforming communities.”  That is what new life in Jesus looks like: first with a life turned upside down, then that life being shared in the name of Christ and making all the difference in families, in neighborhoods, and communities.  Plan on joining us as we explore what it means to be a witness for the life changing grace offered in Christ Jesus. Christ is Risen!  Christ is Risen, Indeed!
