Easter Events
Here is our list of upcoming Easter events! Be sure to mark your calendars.
Easter Play: Come hear the story of Jesus’ great love for us and the sacrifice that He made so that we might have new life. Through acting, singing, and live music you will feel as though you are part of the story. Performances will be Sunday, April 14 at 11:00 am & 6:00 pm. Invite your family and friends!
Good Friday Prayer Walk: This prayerful and reflective event will be an “interactive prayer walk” with stations starting with creation and moving through the birth, life, and death of Jesus.  This event is unlike anything you have experienced in a church.  It is a modern spin of the stations of the Cross with artistic scenes, dynamic lighting and something to reach all your senses.  The walkthrough is open on Good Friday, April 19 from 10:00 am-8:00 pm. You go through it at your own pace.  Expect it to take at least 30 minutes to go through, but you can stay as long as you need.
Easter Sunday Services: On Easter Sunday, April 21 at 10:00 am & 11:30 am, we are excited to offer two identical service times for you and your family.  Each service will be approximately 1 hour long and filled with joyful songs and an encouraging sermon from Pastor Stephen. There will be activities for kids of all ages during both services. We look forward to seeing you there!
Kid’s Easter Egg Hunt: What kid doesn’t love to get loads of candy??? At our East Egg Hunt we make it a point that every kid who comes takes home a bag loaded with candy! With over 2000 eggs to find! Our egg hunt this year will take place from 11:00-11:30 am on Easter Sunday, April 21 between our two services. Kids and families, be sure to join us for this special event! You never know what amazing things will happen!
