OUR LIFE IN CHRIST story: Through Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we are brought to faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior, who redeemed us, by His death on the cross, through His Word, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and in regular worship we are strengthened until that great day when we shall rise to eternal life with the King of Kings.
Just as a beautiful new butterfly comes out of a lifeless cocoon, so did Jesus' lifeless body come out of the tomb on Easter Day. The victory of His resurrection is symbolized by a butterfly.
"But the angels said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: He has risen from the dead." Matthew 28: 5-7
