Looking for an Easter Service to attend?
Celebrate Easter with us on April 9th!
It Started in the Garden
From the beginning of our holy story, the garden is a place of wonder, creation, and goodness. Then, everything goes out of control. Years later, when it looks like the worst thing has happened, the garden is transformed by an empty tomb. New creation began in a garden.
