April 15, 2018: Jesus' post-resurrection appearances (part 1)

This week, we had an unusual service. For the first time in many years, we had no electricity for the first 2/3rds of the service due to a power outage. Exelon got our portion of the power grid back up just before the sermon started, so we were able to record that (but nothing else). This changed our worship service to an acoustic one. No organ...piano and guitar and our voices sufficiently helped us to sing praises to God and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Sunday school was interesting as well! Thanks to the hard working linesmen at Exelon for getting us back up and running 7 hours earlier than expected, in very challenging weather conditions, with snow and light freezing rain falling!

This week, Pastor Hodge expounded on John 20:11-18. Unbelievers think that Christian women are treated as second class citizens. Of course, God crushes that utter nonsense as women were the first to see the risen Christ, and their encounter with angels, and Jesus. God gave men and women equally important roles, just as He does today.

We had intended to record the Children's sermon and special music, but the power didn't come back on until afterwards.

You can hear the sermon here:

And we pray you have a great week in Christ Jesus!
