How to Get the Most Out of Easter
But there is a way to have a more meaningful experience on Easter. Here's how:
Don't skip the part that comes before the resurrection.
It's wonderful to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter morning, but if you skip the part where Jesus is crucified, dies, and is buried, the resurrection loses it's meaning.
That's why I want to invite you to participate in our Good Friday service this week.
Journey with Jesus to the Cross on Good Friday
Good Friday is the day Jesus was crucified and died. We'll be remembering this holy day with a "Service of Darkness" at 7:00 p.m. We'll begin the service with the sanctuary full of light. But as we read the story of the arrest, trial, crucifixion, and death of Jesus, we will slowly bring the lights down, signifying the death of Jesus. It's a powerful way to journey with Jesus through his time of suffering. This service will last about one hour.
What about my kids?
Both of these services are great for kids in elementary school. If you have kids in preschool or younger, we'll have childcare available for them.
Don't miss out on experiencing Easter to the fullest. Join us at the Good Friday service at 7:00 p.m. Let's journey with Jesus through his death and burial on Friday, so that on Easter Sunday we can shout with deep and authentic joy, "Christ is risen, indeed!"
