THIS WEEKEND AT ELMHURST CRC - EASTER
THIS SUNDAY'S MESSAGE:
He is risen! He is risen indeed! Today we remember that with hearts full of sadness and emptied of hope, some of Jesus’ female followers were surprised on Sunday morning to discover an empty tomb and a risen Jesus. These women become the first to proclaim the good news of the resurrection. We celebrate this good news (the gospel!) through song, readings, Scripture, prayer, and a meditation.
