He is Alive Easter 2022

Apr 17, 2022  Elisha Freeman — It has been at least two weeks since Jesus has been resurrected and Peter has not had an opportunity to speak with him. Does this mean Jesus is done with Peter? Can Peter return from his denial of Jesus when he was arrested? Does this mean the things that Jesus promised Peter in Matthew 16:15-18 are now going to someone else? Is there any hope for Peter? This morning we will read through the third resurrection appearance to answer our questions.

If we are going to follow Jesus then a cross is the path. How can we become a cross shaped people? This morning we will explore this question and have Jesus’ answer challenge us.
