On Easter morning, Jesus rolled the stone away from his tomb – and with it, He rolled away death, fear and hopelessness. The Easter story is about God’s love for every one of us! Love came out of an empty tomb. Love is victorious. God loves YOU! God defeated death for YOU. This is what Easter is all about. Come hear the story and experience the love this Easter at First United Methodist Church.
