Family Easter Experience
Join us for the Family Easter Experience on March 24th at Sunrise Park. This is a come and go event from 11am–1pm. There will be games and activities for the family, as well as a free lunch. Invite your friends and neighbors! You can also sign up to help at firstfamily.church/easter-experience. If you’d like to donate individually wrapped candy for the event, you can drop them off in the children’s wing until March 21st
Easter is right around the corner! Easter week begins on Palm Sunday, March 25th, with our services focusing on the coming of the Lord Jesus as Messiah. Also, our kids will join us in the services as they wave palm branches as the people of Israel did for Jesus. On Friday, March 30th at 7pm, we’ll have our Good Friday Night of Worship, where we’ll dwell on the crucified Christ in a night of prayer and worship while preparing for the glorious Easter resurrection. Easter week culminates on Resurrection Sunday, when we’ll celebrate and praise the risen Lord Jesus! Sunrise service with breakfast at 7am, then regular service times of 8:30am and 10:30am. We’ll see you there!
