As Easter celebrations come to an end, we might find ourselves wondering “What’s next?” Easter offers us a chance to accept Christ as a RISEN Lord and Savior. Once we learn to trust in the greatest miracle of history, we are called into deeper relationship with God through sharing the good news of Jesus with the world around us. Scripture records Jesus giving his disciples some simple yet powerful instructions which we often call “The great commission.” For the next 6 weeks we’ll be digging deeper into our next steps as Easter people!


  • Romans 10:14-17, Matthew 28:16 - Listen to Jesus

    As we review the fullness of The Great Commission we’ll recognize that, even in its introduction, we are called to learn more, trust the testimony of others, and to GO where Jesus tells us to GO!

  • John 20:24-31, Matthew 28:17 - Worship & Doubt

    What does God do with our worship AND our doubt(s)? God receives our worship and seeks to dispel our doubt. HONESTY with God and with self is crucial to being able to GO! 

  • Colossian 1:15-20, Matthew 28:18 - Trust in Jesus' Power

    Jesus (and Paul) reminds us that when he asks us to follow Him, we aren’t being asked to follow an earthly leader with authority given by humans. Jesus has been given authority by the Father over ALL things. Learning to surrender to the Lordship of Jesus will help us to trust that he has the power to guide us as we GO!

  • Matthew 4:19, Matthew 28:19a - Make Disciples

    As we consider what it means to “make” disciples, we must first remind ourselves what it means to BE a disciple - follow, be transformed, join the mission - AND GO!

  • Romans 6:1-4, 12-13, Matthew 28:19b - Go, Baptize, Obey

    Baptism begins God's work of saving us by cleansing us of sin and beginning the work of renewing us fully into the image of Christ. Baptism is not seen as the ONLY way to salvation, but a method by which we can understand GRACE. Obedience is our response to being cleansed of sin.

  • John 14:15-17, 25-26, Matthew 28:20b - I Will Be with You

    “Going” can be hard. GOING can feel unknown. The thought of the task before us can be daunting and even keep us from going where God calls us. But Jesus promises that wherever we GO, we will not be alone!
