Easter Sunday Celebration
April 21, 2019
What’s it all about? Is it more than just a holiday weekend, with some time off work?
Easter is a massive celebration.
What is there to celebrate? Easter celebrates the fact that man’s greatest enemy and fear has been conquered by the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
But did Jesus really rise from the dead?
How do we know Jesus arose from the dead?
How does Jesus’ rising from the dead affect me today?
Come explore and celebrate with us on Sunday, April 21!
To help us prepare our hearts and minds for a celebratory Easter… check out these handpicked song selections!
What are the locations & service times for each campus? PRO TIP: ARRIVE 10-15 MINUTES EARLY
For the best Easter Sunday experience, ARRIVE 10-15 MINUTES EARLY! (Especially if you have the kiddos with you)
Where do I park?
At our Florence Campus*, we welcome our first-time guests to park in our designated guest spots by the main entrances! But really, feel free to park anywhere. We will have parking attendants waiting for you to help you find a good spot to park. 🙂
For first-time guests at our Fort Thomas Campus*, please park anywhere you can find a spot in the lot. We share the lot with some local businesses but there’s always ample space and there’s really not a bad parking space. 🙂
For our regular attendees: As you know, our parking lots have plenty of space but carpooling with your friends or family always helps provided ample space for our guests!
*All campuses are wheelchair accessible.
What about my kids?
At our Florence Campus, we will have GraceKids offered from Nursery – Kindergarten. 1st – 5th graders are encouraged to worship with their families in the service. Our children’s wing is located in the rear of the church building – Entrance C. If you’re not sure where to go when you arrive, ask a parking attendant or any volunteer and they will be happy to point you in the right direction.
At our Fort Thomas Campus, we will have GraceKids offered from Nursery & Toddlers. Ages 4 & up are encouraged to worship with their families in the service. Our children’s wing is located in the “storefront” area where the large Grace Fellowship sign is located. If you’re not sure where to go when you arrive, ask any volunteer and they will be happy to point you in the right direction.
What should I wear?
At Grace Fellowship, you’ll find all styles of dress. We’re not trying to be cliché when we say, “Come as you are!” We truly mean it. On any given Sunday, you’ll find the majority of our church family in jeans and tops, although some may dress up a little on Easter or other holidays. Here at GFC, there’s no such as thing as an unspoken “dress-code” for any day of the year. We’re just glad you’re here. 🙂
What will we do? What can I expect?
We will have a fairly typical worship schedule. We will sing some songs and hear a message from one of our pastors. We will attempt to have a blend of songs and music all ages can enjoy. Our intent in our worship and teaching times is to always share Truth, grace, and ultimately hope.
How long will the service last?
Our Easter services last about an hour.
Will you embarrass me?
We certainly hope not. Our goal is to create an environment which is comfortable for all. You WILL NOT be singled out as a visitor. We don’t make visitors stand or raise their hand… and you certainly won’t be asked to sing a solo, unless you sing really, really loudly – in that case, you’re on your own.
Can I only come one time? Really, what am I signing up for if I come Easter Sunday?
There’s no obligation beyond Easter Sunday. Being honest, we do ask you to fill out a connect card if you’re comfortable to. And, if you do, we will follow up with you. We love seeing who God brings among us each Sunday. If you do choose to fill out a card, we allow YOU TO TELL US how you want to be contacted – namely phone, email, or snail mail – or none – you tell us. We promise not to show up at your house unannounced nor give your contact info to anyone else. We also won’t put any unfair pressure on you to ever come again. But we hope you will. We would love if Easter triggered a desire in you to be a part of our church family, but that’s totally your call – not ours.
