Easter at "The Road"!
"The Road" celebrates easter through three services. Easter is the most important of all the church holidays. On Easter we celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead. This is the single most important event in all of history!
The first service is called a Tenebrae service and it is held on the Thursday before Easter. The Thursday before Easter is called Maundy Thursday.
At our Tenebrae service, we read from the scriptures and put out candles as we remember the betrayal and crucifixion of our Lord. At the close of the service we leave the sanctuary quietly and in the dark in remembrance of Jesus in the tomb.
Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service:
Thursday April 2nd at 7:00pm
The second service is the Sunrise Service on Easter morning. At the Sunrise Service we celebrate the sunrise discovery of Jesus' empty tomb. The Sunrise Service begins at 7:00am on Easter morning and is followed by breakfast in the fellowship hall at 8:00am.
Easter Sunrise Service:
Sunday April 5th at 7:00am
Breakfast at 8:00am
The third service is at our normal worship time and will begin with a song from our children's choir. At this service we celebrate the resurrection event as a whole. Make sure that you are ready to respond to the pastor when he says, "The Lord is risen!" The answer is, "The Lord is risen indeed!"
(Nice and loud folks.)
Sunday April 5th 10:30am
Parents: If you would like your child to sing in the Easter choir, please make sure that they are in the Sanctuary by 10:15am. We will run through the song, "Christ is Risen From the Dead, by Matt Maher" together once before the service starts.
