EASTER IS OUR SUPERBOWL!
Easter is a celebration of the most significant event that ever occurred in the history of the world – the Resurrection of our Savior!! This weekend, over one billion people will stop and focus for a few brief moments on this incredible event. It is so significant that human history has been divided by the Resurrection of our Savior! This is a time to celebrate and focus on the amazing provisions God has made for our spiritual redemption and restoration! 
 
Easter week is my favorite week of the year. In fact, I have told many people I would do Easter every weekend if we could. We anticipate that Easter 2019 will be the greatest Easter outreach ever for The Grace Place Church! Please pray our Easter advertising will be used by God to strategically reach people He knows we can minister to most effectively. We encourage you to come this weekend with an attitude of great expectation of God doing incredible things in the lives of thousands of people! 
 
Here is a reminder of how we are celebrating the death and Resurrection of our Savior:
  • Tonight we will celebrate “Good Friday,” at 6:30 p.m. in the Celebration Center, with a powerful Good Friday message focused on the sacrifice, death and amazing grace of our Savior. Communion will be served, and you will have the opportunity to nail your sins to the cross.
  • In our Easter Weekend Worship services – Saturday at 6:00 p.m., Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. - we will celebrate the resurrection of our Savior with incredible worship, wonderful music, the Spoken Word, and a message focused on bringing people who are far from God to personal faith in Jesus.
  • Our GraceKids ministry will share the message of the Resurrection with our children and have a terrific Easter Festival with a petting zoo, games and candy.
  • On Easter Sunday morning, at 7:00 a.m. in Sandsprit Park, we will have our annual Easter Sunrise Service. This is a spectacular service held in one of the most beautiful settings in South Florida. Don’t miss it! 
  • Our Easter Baptism will be in our baptismal pool at 12:30 p.m., immediately following our 11:00 a.m. service.
Please take advantage of this opportunity to invite your seeking friends, family members, work associates and neighbors to come to church with you this weekend. We have discovered there is no other time when people are more open to coming to church than on Easter weekend! We are praying and believing God is going to draw hundreds of people to Himself during these times of celebration!
