“More than a Holiday” – John 20:1-18 – Pastor Larry Kassebaum

Never the same again

Living life without a resurrection faith is like owning a car without a battery.

1 Corinthians 15:19

He was here

Wherever the king is there is the kingdom.

Acts 2:22

Live life on purpose

If you have nothing worth dying for you also have nothing worth living for.

Luke 2:29-31
