Ushering Us Back to Eden

This is a post-Easter series of four sermons based on the Building Blocks of Faith and focussed on Easter as the pivot point for returning to an Eden-like place of thriving because of Christ’s death and resurrection. Genesis 3 serves as a backdrop for each of the sermons. Our Worship Arts Team created a lovely tableau that features a dying tree made of twigs on the left side and planted in a dying garden, and the image transitions gradually to a flowering tree in a verdant garden. 

Building Blocks language focusing on what we are inviting folks out of and into:
