The disciples Peter and John came running to the tomb on the morning of the Resurrection, 1898, Eugène Burnand.

Christ is risen!

Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.
—Luke 12:24

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.
