Easter Season 2018 Worship Planning Series
Easter isn’t just a single day in the Christian Year. It’s a season of 50 days, starting with celebration of the resurrection of Jesus celebrated on Easter 1, and concluding with the celebration of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost (the 50th day!). The first three readings from Acts in Year B are drawn from the story of John and Peter, who bring healing to a person born with a serious disability, all in the name of Jesus. Healing is at the core of the ministry of Jesus, then and now. Our first Easter series, “In the Name of Jesus” explores the core dynamics of testimony, faith, and God’s saving power made available to all in his name.
