Go and Tell Christ is Risen!

 

In 1 Corinthians 15, the Resurrection Chapter, the Apostle Paul writes, “What I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins . . . that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures . . .” (1 Corinthians 15:3).

Eastertide: Celebrating Christianity

Trumpets heralded the risen Christ this past Easter Sunday, but they also herald a new season of Eastertide lasting 50 days until the day of Pentecost.  While Lent was a time of tackling new holy habits or banning bad habits, Eastertide is about celebration and joy of being a Christian.

Today, this extended season gives us time to rejoice and experience what it means when we say Christ is risen. It’s the season when we remember our baptisms and how through this sacrament we are, according to the liturgy, “incorporated into Christ’s mighty acts of salvation.” As “Easter people,” we also celebrate and ponder the birth of the Church and gifts of the Spirit (Pentecost), and how we are to live as faithful disciples of Christ.

Please keep in prayer our brothers and sisters in Christ who experienced the trauma of bombings in Sri Lanka during Easter worship and for all those oppressed for their faith. We are truly blessed to live in a nation that tolerates all forms of religious expression.

The Church

A Little Bit About Us: 

Concord Methodist Church was formed in 1819, making it one of the oldest Methodist churches in Montgomery County, MD. St. Andrew's Methodist Church formed in 1956 to serve a growing suburban population. The two churches merged in 1976 to become Concord-St. Andrew's United Methodist Church and the 35th anniversary was celebrated in October 2011. Learn more about us here.

Worship lifts our spirirts and strengthens our relationships with God. It also stirs our imaginations, fills us with wonder, and offers us fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Come as you are! Be our guest! Experience the love of God and Christian community.
