Easter is a celebration! A celebration of life – our eternal life that came through grace in the sacrifice, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This year we will remember and celebrate in the following ways:
Palm Sunday Celebration – On Sunday, April 14th, our children and Youth will be remembering Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on the Sunday before His crucifixion. The children will bring this scripture to life with drama and music.
Last Supper Communion – On Thursday, April 18th, we will remember the Lord’s Last Supper and His institution of Communion. The church will open and communion offered throughout the day beginning at 12 noon and continuing until 8:00pm. This is a wonderful time to pause and remember individually or as a family.
Good Friday Procession of The Cross – On Good Friday, April 19th, we will again gather to bear witness to our community to the Crucifixion of Jesus by walking through the town of Advance carrying a cross. We will have one cross for adults to carry and another cross for children. Because of the road construction, we will proceed through town as we can, beginning and ending at the Advance Utility Maintenance Building on South Street. This has been a wonderful witness. Good Friday Procession of the Cross will go on, rain or shine. Please dress for weather and bring your umbrellas! Sonrise Service – On Easter Sunday, April 21st, we will gather at 7:00 am for our annual Sonrise service. We will remember that early morning when the women went to the tomb and found it empty in song, scripture, and devotion. This year’s devotional message will be “Empty,” which will focus on what the empty tomb means to us.
Sonrise Breakfast – Immediately following our Sonrise service we will host a breakfast fellowship from approximately 7:45 am until 9:00 am. We are asking volunteers to bring breakfast items. Please sign up the foyer.
Easter Celebration Service - Easter is an awesome day to worship as a family. We will gather at 9:20 am for our celebration of Jesus’ Resurrection. Please note that we will not have Sunday School on this day. Please invite your family, friends and neighbors to come and rejoice with us because Jesus is alive!
We will also be hosting our annual Easter Egg Hunt immediately after our services. 5
