Christ is risen!

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body.
— Luke 24:1-3

Jesus Christ is risen! Alleluia! He provides faith and opens our eyes so we can share abundant life.

In the seven weeks that follow Easter Sunday, we celebrate baptism and share in the joy that comes from God’s saving grace. Connect with a Northeastern Iowa Synod congregation where you can celebrate this season of unexpected surprises and new life.
