Light Hearted Sunday
Based on Proverbs 17:17, Acts 4:32-35
A tradition of rejoicing and celebration has been the spirit of the week immediately following Easter for many centuries. Holy love prevails and as Christians we live in the light of holy love and we gather around the light of Christ.

Our God of mysterious abundance calls us into worship.
Holy God, your gift of Jesus’ resurrection fills us with great joy!
