At Midtown and East, the Easter celebration for the kids will take place during the services. At Midtown, get ready for a big party and some great art projects during the services! At J-town and New Albany, there will be an egg hunt during the services with four thousand Easter eggs! At East, get ready for an “Egg”stravaganza with a family barbecue and egg hunt outside from 5pm until 7pm!
On Easter Sunday, we will study Matthew 28:1-10 and John 20:1-23. We will learn that:
- God raised Jesus from the dead just like he promised.
- Jesus has beaten death.
- We should rejoice and not fear death, because Jesus is alive!
