Due to the redemptive significance of the resurrection of Jesus, God's people began to meet to worship God on the first day of the week, rather than the last day. So in a very true sense - Christians are aware of, and worship in light of - the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus every week on the Lord's Day (Sunday). Nevertheless, what we call Easter, has become a time set aside to remember these aformentioned truths especially. At First Family Church, we gather at the following days and times to worship:
Friday - March 30 - Good Friday Jesus was crucified and killed on a Friday. Then he rose on the following Sunday. This Friday has come to be known as "Good Friday," and we call it that because Jesus took upon himself the wrath of all who would believe. He didn't deserve to die but he substituted himself in our place so that we can be forgiven and declared righteous. Join us at 6:30pm on the Friday leading up to Easter Sunday for a time of worshiping God for his great love for us. We will also be observing the Lord's Table this evening.
Sunday - April 1 - Sunrise Service Every day, the sun rises and the night flees. This is a daily reminder of how God the Son defeated the darkness in the world and that he will one day come again to usher in an age of peace. Join us at 6:30am on April 1st for a "sunrise service" at the top of the hill on our property (weather permitting). The service will be over by 7:30am.
Easter Day We will be having our normal two services at 9&11am. Some of the Sunday School classes will be closed, but not all (Children's Church will proceed as normal). Be sure to check with the Sunday School teachers in advance to plan accordingly. Being that this is the first Sunday of the month, we would typically be observing the Lord's Table together. Since it is Easter Sunday, we will not be observing the Lord's Table due to the possibility of guests who may feel pressured to take it, and end up taking it in an unworthy manner. We will be observing this means of grace during our Good Friday service, and we we hope to see you then.
