April 1, 2018 Easter – Discovering Jesus

Posted on April 5, 2018 @ 6:50 pm

On this happiest of days in the year, we gather to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.

Following the Westminster Chimes the congregation joins in singing the first stanza of Jesus Christ Is Risen Today!

Andrew Lee leads the congregation in prayer and then reads the scripture lesson: Mark 16:1-8 followed by Rev. Dr. Martha Campbell leading the congregation in the Lord’s Prayer.

Video of the Children’s Choir singing Every Praise (featuring soloists Riley Paddock and Parker Lee) and Come Just As You Are (featuring Braden Fung as soloist) is available on our Facebook page: Westminster Presbyterian Church, Pasadena, California.

The sermon, Discovering Jesus, by Rev. Dr. Twining Campbell, considers the importance of Mary Magdalene’s statement: “I have seen the Lord” and how it applies to us as well.

Following the Benediction, the service concludes with Imre Szilas playing the Postlude “Toccata”  by Charles M. Widor.
