What an incredible week this is as we honor and celebrate all that Jesus has done for us! This singular moment in history, this reality of the death and resurrection of Jesus, is the one event that has changed the course of the world and eternity.
I love it how Paul, a follower of Jesus states it. In a letter to the Corinthian church (1 Corinthians 15:12-20) he states,
“12 But tell me this—since we preach that Christ rose from the dead, why are some of you saying there will be no resurrection of the dead? 13 For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. 15 And we apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no resurrection of the dead. 16 And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. 18 In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! 19 And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world. 20 But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.”
Jesus died and Jesus rose!
In this we place our hope!

(A side note: ALL events are happening at East Valley High School. 5525 Vineland Ave, North Hollywood, CA 91601)
GOOD FRIDAY (tonight!!!)
We will have an intimate time in worship, communion, Bible reading and more! Come and join us as we talk about “I Am Barabbas”. God took the place of the worst of sinners. What amazing love and grace! Join us TONIGHT at 6:30pm for English and 7:45pm for Spanish.
We have a lot going on! Join us at these times:
10:30am and 2:00pm PRAYER. We will have two times of prayer on Saturday as we get ready for Easter Sunday, asking God to open people’s hearts to the life that He has for them!
10-4pm RECYCLING EVENT. Donations go to help our community outreach and to help East Valley High School. At this event, we will be inviting our community to join us on Easter Sunday.
We all have doors in our lives. A door is an entryway, an access point to something beyond it. Some doors are hard to get through. Some doors seem designed to keep us out. Jesus is the one with the master key to open up the door of life. If we choose to walk through it, we can experience all that he has for us!
This will be a Sunday filled with a kid’s Easter Egg Hunt (during the service), a service filled with spoken word, drama, music and more! And above all, we will celebrate all that Jesus did for us! Baptisms will follow!
Join us at 9am for English and 11am for Spanish. It will be a great day!!!
