Pastor Jarrod concludes our I AM series on Easter Sunday with the story of Lazarus. Jesus said "I am the resurrection and the life, all who believe in me will never die." Do you believe?
This Easter we kicked off a new sermon series called Stuff Christians Believe, highlighting some of the foundational beliefs and practices of Christians throughout the centuries. On Easter Sunday we talked about how to categorize Jesus. Pop culture accepts Jesus as a good moral teacher, but in this message we show why Jesus cannot be just a good moral teacher. In an adaptation of C. S. Lewis' classic argument, we show that Jesus must be either a Liar, a Lunatic, a Legend, or the Lord. What do you do with Jesus?
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?
