    We have completed a time of casting visions and are now claiming that vision and living into God Dreams at Sunset United Methodist Church. Whether you have been a part of this great church family for decades or this is your first time to glance at our community of faith, I invite you lean on the Holy Spirit with us as God does a new thing. As we offer our authentic selves to God and to one another, surely we will all be changed for the better.

 Pastor Keith A. Swatzel II

Matthew 28

The Resurrection

 1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week,

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.  2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.  5The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."  8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him . 10Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."
