Easter & Holy Week Schedule of Events

Easter is a wonderful time of celebration. It is the time we recall with great joy the Resurrection of Jesus. We hope to have a chance to share these meaningful moments with you and your family. Below is our schedule for Holy Week (the week preceding Easter) and Easter morning.

  • Holy Thursday, 7pm (April 2): This is also called Maundy Thursday because of the Latin term mandatum, which is the first word in the phrase Jesus used, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you.” During this service we recall Jesus’ final night with his disciples.
  • Good Friday, 7pm (April 3): This service remembers the events of Jesus’ crucifixion.
  • Easter Egg Hunt, 11am (April 4): We’ve invited the entire community for our annual Easter Egg Hunt. There’ll be more than 5,000 eggs to find for kids of all ages. Join us at the Activity Center to start all the fun!
  • Sunrise service, 7am (April 5): It’s a wonderful tradition to begin Easter morning with an early service, recalling that it was early in the morning when the women first learned of Jesus’ Resurrection. This is a joyous service, followed by a wonderful breakfast for everyone.

Of course, we have our normally scheduled worship service at 11am on Sunday morning. Please know that all are invited to be a part of any and all of our activities and events. We look forward to seeing you this Easter. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
