Sunday, April 12 | Easter
You are invited to join us today for Easter service. This is a chance to celebrate the truth of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hope, power and good news that he has conquered death! We look forward to worshiping with you!
The sermon will be available to view at 8 a.m.
Follow along during the service
In place of our normal HFNY Easter Sacrificial Offering, we encourage you to give to the West Side Disaster Relief Fund. This fund directly helps people in our congregation financially affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
April 6 - 12 | #JesusChangedMyLife
On Easter Sunday our church will not be able to gather in-person as we traditionally do. COVID-19, has many people looking for answers to life’s questions and wondering if there is any hope. We believe this obstacle is actually an opportunity to share the gospel with more people than we typically would on Easter and to empower you to be the primary heralds of that good news.
What's your story?
Everyone one of us has a unique story. Yet the hero in all those stories is the same — Jesus! This week leading up to Easter, on the social media platform of your choosing, we encourage you to participate in #JesusChangedMyLife by sharing your story. We'll post a few stories during the week and hope that encourages you to share your own story!
Here's a guide to writing your 60 second story.
Post April 6-12
1. Record a video of yourself sharing your story of how Jesus changed your life (here are some helpful tips for shooting your video)
2. Post your story using the #JesusChangedMyLife hashtag and your church's handle (#JesusChangedMyLife @redeemerws). When people click on the Redeemer West Side handle, they will go to our social media profile and find a link to view this page where the Easter Sunday service will be available to hear the story of the gospel.
3. Invite your friends to hear the good news and hope of Easter Sunday by sharing westside.redeemer.com/easter
Rather than each of us inviting one person to an Easter service, we could each proclaim the gospel to hundreds of non-Christian friends and co-workers. People all over our city, staying in their homes and scrolling on their phones, would see a flood of stories about how the resurrected Jesus brings purpose, meaning and hope.
We are excited to hear your stories!
