Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
11 Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. 13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
15 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).
17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

THREE Villages next Sunday (4/15)
Villages are “regional” gatherings designed solely for the purpose of building community. We get together, eat, laugh, and get to know one another. On April 15th there will be THREE village opportunities: Southwest Raleigh, North Raleigh, and East Raleigh. Join us for a great afternoon of food, fun, and fellowship. Click here for times and locations!
Guatemala 2018 • August 19-25
Our Global Ministries partner, Lemonade International, prefers to call their summer trips “Vision Trips” instead of Mission Trips. This isn’t just clever word play. It is true. This trip is less about “doing” and more about experiencing God. It has been said that “grace is like water — it flows downhill and pools up in the lowest places.” If this is true, there is much grace for us to see, touch and feel in the community of La Limonada.
If you’ve never been on a short-term mission trip before, considering joining our team to Guatemala this summer! Learn more here or talk to Pastor Curtis directly as he will be the team leader for this year’s trip.
