There will always be skeptics who call into question the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but plenty of evidence exists to defend this core teaching of our faith. The fourteen resurrection proofs below are meant to help you to live out your hope, “Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15b).
Every year at this time, children, of all ages, have quite a challenge. How are they going to pay attention to mom in such a way that the day goes well? There are the standard and routine ways to recognize this one very important person in the family – a card, a phone call, flowers, children trying to be on their best behavior. Mothers and their children tend to have high expectations for what the day will be like.
On Palm Sunday, we were blessed with the Concordia University Handbell Choir playing a concert at PHLC as part of our Concert Series. Pacific Hills has had the privilege to hear our own beautiful handbells these last two years with our own Handbell Choir that was started. There has been a lot of work from the ensemble musicians to share the gift of handbell music with the congregation, especially with many musicians having never played handbells before!
First Peter is on deck for the Epistle readings this Easter Season. So, if you like “series” preaching or “lectionary” preaching this series will bring a little of both. The theme I have chosen for this series is: Strength for Today / Bright Hope for Tomorrow, based on the much-loved hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” Peter wrote his first epistle to believers who had been dispersed throughout the ancient world and were under intense persecution. Peter wanted to remind his hearers of the hope that we have because of God’s faithfulness.
