New Life Fes­ti­val

Fam­i­lies, come cel­e­brate the res­ur­rec­tion at Saint John’s at the New Life Fes­ti­val, fea­tur­ing live ani­mals, face paint­ing, egg col­or­ing, a bouncy house, bub­bles, bal­loons and — through­out — the great Easter message!
Easter Sun­rise
April 16; 6:30 AM
In a spe­cial ser­vice at the break of dawn we remem­ber God’s sav­ing grace through­out human his­tory, which cul­mi­nated in the sac­ri­fi­cial gift of Christ Jesus.
Easter Fes­ti­val
April 16; 9:00 AM
It is a day of cel­e­bra­tion: Jesus is alive, and if God can raise Jesus from the dead, He can bring life to any sit­u­a­tion; He can take away the fear of death.

This Sun­day

And He was trans­fig­ured before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white as light.” Moses and Eli­jah wit­nessed the ful­fill­ment of the Old Tes­ta­ment in this Lord Jesus, and the Father tes­ti­fied con­cern­ing Him: “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; lis­ten to Him!” The dis­ci­ples, too, were “eye­wit­nesses of His majesty.” The tes­ti­mony of apos­tles of every age are con­firmed in the trans­fig­u­ra­tion. As Peter writes, “We have the prophetic word more fully con­firmed, to which you will do well to pay atten­tion as to a lamp shin­ing in a dark place.

By His own blood, shed on the cross, Jesus makes and seals the new covenant with us. Hence the appear­ance of the glory of the Lord is no longer “like a devour­ing fire.” To us, His glory is gra­ciously revealed in His own body. We are like the elders, who went up the moun­tain with Moses, saw God, and, instead of being destroyed, “ate and drank.” We also behold the Lord our God in Christ Jesus, and we abide with Him as we eat and drink His body and blood at the altar.
