When people think creativity they often go right to eccentric artists with paint all over their faces… and we’ve got a few of those in our congregation.

But being creative is about WAY more than the arts.

Creativity is for everyone! And it’s the only way to follow Christ in an increasingly polarized world.

Kevin Makins & Eucharist Church - Setting the Table: Mass for the End of the World

Revelation, 1 Corinthians 15

The final sermon of our 23 week series “Setting the Table” - exploring the narrative of Scripture.

It began in a garden; it ends in a city.

Our journey though the narrative of Scripture has taken us through every human emotion; it has challenged us, comforted us, and rooted us in a story that starts at creation and stretches on into eternity.

What better way to finish our journey than to look ahead to the day when God floods this world with His glory, setting it right again.

But how do you tell the story of Revelation? How do you take a book written in an ancient genre (Apocalyptic) and let it speak as powerfully as it was meant to?

You don’t “preach it” - you perform it.

Which is exactly what we did! Motivated by the dramatic images and story found in Revelation, a group from Eucharist took us on a fully costumed, Johnny Cash inspired, trip through the end of the world as we know it.

Listen through the service online, and anticipate with us the end of this world (as we know it) and the revealing of the world as it was meant to be; pain replaced by joy, death replaced by life, fear replaced by love!
