Jesus’s Resurrection: Fact or Fiction?

on April 24, 2014 - 8:09am

We have heard the story surrounding the resurrection of Jesus, but—did it really happen, or is it just a good story? Join us this Sunday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church for a FREE community dinner (celebrating Cinco de Mayo—ole!) and contemporary worship service (this Sunday and EVERY second and fourth Sunday).

The meal begins at 5:15 p.m. this Sunday, April 27, followed at 6:07 p.m. with the service and a live praise-and-worship band. For this service, the band will be going acoustic (no amplification), so it will have a softer, more folksy mix.

Many of you may have gained a few pounds over the winter, and if you’re going to look the way you want this summer, now is the time to get your body in shape. The first thing you’re going to need to do to change your body for the summer is to begin exercising more.

Wild Neighbors (Number One)
Column by Carolyn A. (Cary) Neeper, Ph. D.

On the other side of the yard from the Hen House—on the west side—sits the covered front porch. It is enclosed by a wooden fence topped with a two-by-four railing. On that railing and on the various shaped blocks that decorate the fencing, go unsalted peanuts in the shell, for the jays.

A feeder tray sits atop the west side of the railing, next to a plastic bowl of water.
