28:1 Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4 And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” 8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
The Report of the Guard
11 While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place. 12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers 13 and said, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.
The Great Commission
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

We are excited to have our new surface level and garage parking available for Sunday! Please enter from Oak Lawn Avenue on the south side of campus (previously Newton Ct). Here is a New Campus Map PDF. You may also park behind Oak Lawn West, Shops of Highland Park, and where permitted in the neighborhood. Valet will be available on Wycliff Ave. for senior adults and the handicapped (turn right into the Shops of HP parking lot).
Opening Our Doors on Sundays
As we open our New Doors, we will need parents or guardians to reserve a spot for their child in our Children’s Ministry Sunday morning programs at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. This helps ensure we have an appropriate number of volunteers and space each Sunday at both hours. If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are no longer requesting reservations for attendance in our Worship Services. Once the services have reached max attendance for Sunday, we will have overflow rooms available.
If you are in need of pastoral care during this season, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our pastors through Wilma Morgan at 214-224-2742 or email at email@example.com. We are eager to walk with you and encourage all of our flock during this time. If you have physical or financial needs that our diaconate can assist with, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have also set up a Prayer Wall where you can submit prayer requests and pray for others during this season.
