Christ Made Known

Isaiah proclaims the great feast to come, when God will swallow up death forever. Paul invites us to celebrate the paschal feast with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. The Easter evening gospel tells of the risen Christ being made known to the disciples in the breaking of the bread. Our hearts burn within us as the hope of the resurrection is proclaimed in our midst, and as Jesus appears to us at the holy table.

Visit the Prisoner...

James-Morgan-Fox-Lake

Sunday, April 28 at 9:30 am

James Morgan, a previously-imprisoned person, is coming to Lake Edge to tell about his experiences with our prison system – with specific emphasis on how hard it is to get away from it after being released.

James will speak as part of a program about what MOSES does to help prisoners like him rebuild their lives, both inside of prison and after release.

James currently works as a peer counselor for Madison Urban Ministry, helping recently released prisoners get housing, jobs, and other needs.

You, too, can make a difference to the rehabilitation of prisoners! We want Lake Edge to be more involved with MOSES. Please come to hear James, as well as MOSES members from Lake Edge and from other churches, tell us how.
