GOD MAKES ALL THINGS NEW
Easter is all about celebrating how God, the maker of heaven and earth, again makes all things new through his Son, Jesus.
We live in a broken and messy world today. Many people long to have a re-start in life. Who wish they could have a do-over. The anxiety from past mistakes, failures and let downs plague the hearts and minds of most. But it was not always that way. Before sin entered into our world through humanity’s choice to choose self over God, all things were perfect and completely good in the world. But the good news is that Jesus was sent by the Father and in the Spirit’s power to remake all things as they once were. Jesus accomplished this by dying and rising for sinful humanity (Col. 1:19-20). Jesus’ work is so complete that He promises to return one day to fully and finally make all things as they were always intended. However, in the mean time, Jesus is still accomplishing this work, by sending his Spirit upon us whereby continuing his work of reconciliation and restoration!
To that end, both congregations will celebrate the entire weekend of Easter in different ways. A snapshot of each is below: you can visit the Collister Easter and Downtown Easter pages to find out more. Please consider how you could invite others - friends, neighbors, coworkers - into our celebrations to learn more about the good news of God's victory over death!
