Easter 2012

Easter Sunday at Gospel Life is going to be a special day. It is also going to be a busy day with a sunrise service and communion, breakfast, egg hunt, celebration service and baptisms. The two messages will deal with key issues related to the resurrection of Christ by answering the two questions, Why is it so important & what does it mean for us?

We will begin our day with a 7:30am Sunrise Service. During this service we will sing, take the Lord’s table and study why the resurrection is so important, while refuting some common skeptical and religious denials relating to the resurrection.

At aproximately 8:30am we will have a breakfast in the fellowship hall. During this time the children may participate in an optional egg hunt.

Our Celebration Service will begin at 10:00am. In this service we will answer the second question, what does the resurrection mean to us? A highlight of the service will be several individuals identifying with the risen Christ in baptism.

Here is a pdf flyer for you to invite a friend. (View Here)
