THE EASTER SEASON AT NSMC

Starting this Sunday, our worship theme will be Six Weeks of Appearances.  We will continue to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ by focusing on scriptures which describe Jesus appearing to his disciples. Each week we will also sing one verse of “Christ the Lord is risen today.” These appearance stories will bring us to June 9 when we celebrate Pentecost.

April 28: Jesus appears to the disciples and to Thomas in the Upper Room – John 20: 19 – 31. We will also celebrate Earth Day and Creation Care with scripture readings and hymns.

May 5:  Jesus makes breakfast – John 21:1-14;  Ric Hudgens

May 12:  Jesus appears to Mary and calls her name – John 20: 11-18; (Mother’s Day); David Miller, AMBS (not yet confirmed)

May 19:  Peter, do you love me? – John 21: 15 – 17; Ric Hudgens 

May 26:  On the road to Emmaus – Luke 24:13-32

June 2 – Sunday before Pentecost – Jesus eats with the disciples and explains…  Luke 24:33-49

Linda is looking for and inviting speakers for May 26 and beyond. Anyone with ideas should please contact her.
