WHAT WE'RE LEARNING IN APRIL....
A 4 week series from the New Testament on EASTER
Grab your hiking boots and pitch a tent. It’s time to summit through the story of Jesus, who rose from death and gave us everything we need for our journey. This month, we’re learning about how the miracle of Jesus’ resurrection strengthens us and changes our relationships in the best way. Everyone will have a chance to put these ideas in their backpack to carry with them always: Jesus overcame death. Jesus connects us to each other. Jesus gives encouragement. We are stronger with Jesus.
