Easter Sunday – He is Risen!

Welcome to PBC!

We’re delighted you are here this morning as we gather for worship and celebration of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If this is your first time worshiping with PBC, we hope you enjoy your experience with us.

PBC has been a part of the local community for over 70 years. We are a non-denominational church that values expository preaching that equips us to participate in God’s work.

WORSHIP

Sermon: The Most Human Human


Featured Verse: 
Acts 1:8b

“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”


Sermon Summary

This Easter Sunday at PBC, we’ll see how the resurrection of Jesus gave his followers a message that their world needed to hear. Shortly after defeating shame and death, he brought his disciples up to a hill and charged them with offering a message of hope.

Jesus died and rose again so that we could become fully restored humans. And then he entrusted us with proclaiming that message to the world. After the last year, our world needs some good news. Can we bring it to them?

Featured Verse: 
Luke 13:34-35

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!  Behold, your house is forsaken.

WORSHIP

Sermon: God, Why? Please, Maybe.

(Lamentations 5)

Fifth week in the series “Lamentations: There May Yet Be Hope”


Featured Verse: 
Lamentations 5:21a

Restore us to yourself, O LORD, that we may be restored!


Sermon Summary

In the last chapter of Lamentations, the author addresses shame. After recounting the depth of pain of suffering, he turns to the disgrace of his people. Unlike most of us, Jeremiah’s brings his shame into the open. He invites God to see it, he describes it in all its gory detail. He ends by asking God for restoration. This pattern becomes a model for us and a path toward freedom from shame.
