Easter Sunday 2015: Death... Then What?

We celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday at Pontiac Township High School with over 600 PBC-ers gathered in one service!  The worship band had a 40+ voice gospel choir and a brass section with hints of Gospel, ska, pop, rock, and Bluegrass weaved together into a varied tapestry of music and worship.  Pastor Jarrod also kicked off a new series, Too Hot To Handle, which will focus on topics that most churches or people tend to avoid.  For Easter we discuss the topic of death.  Most people are either obsessed by death, or try to avoid thinking about it as much as possible.  It’s simultaneously one of the most popular subjects in our stories, and one of the most avoided subjects in our personal thoughts!  But the reality is everyone is going to die… so what happens after death?  Do we reincarnate, or simply cease to exist?  Does everyone go to Heaven, or is it going to be a big party in Hell?  What does culture say?  What does the Bible say?  How should we respond?
