EASTER POWER  As the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches journey beyond the resurrection of Christ, they will focus on the truth that Easter’s new life is not just for Jesus, but for all of us in our daily living.  In the sermon based on Acts 5:27-32, titled “Easter Power,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will point to the ways in which living out our faith may mean taking risks as we follow Jesus faithfully.  Join us and come to understand that in the resurrection power shown forth by Jesus, we are more able to see clearly what we are called to do, and to have the strength and courage to do it.  The Nassau Reformed Church worships at 11 a.m. in its chapel at the Church-School-building, 43 Church Street (Rte. 20), in the village of Nassau.
