Palm Sunday Jubilee Services – March 25th

Hosanna! At our worship services, we will honor and celebrate Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. To fulfill the prophecies of old, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the donkey, as the people cheered, “Hosanna in the highest!” They waved palm branches and honored Him. Only He knew what the rest of the week would bring . . .
Jelly Bean Jamboree – March 31st: 2 to 4 PM –
Easter Egg Hunt
Dr. Dan Belamy of Inflatable Stories
will be our special guest.

Children, ages 0 – thru 4th Grade, will enjoy a fun day celebrating the resurrection of Jesus! Kids will enjoy a FREE afternoon of games, food, fun, bounce house, prizes, and 1,000s of eggs for our Easter Egg Hunt (with separate age-specific areas in which your little ones can hunt), and, of course, lots of candy! Invite your friends, and bring an empty Easter basket. We’ll have fun celebrating the real reason of the season!

The Tomb – March 30th thru April 1st
Around the Clock – Guarding of the Tomb
Jesus’ body will be laid to rest in a tomb on our church grounds and guarded by Roman soldiers. This is a striking reminder throughout the weekend of Jesus’ death and the despair that gripped the early disciples prior to the good news that He rose from the dead.
