Easter 201404/15/2014

FBCER is looking forward to celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus on April 18 & 20.

There is nothing more important to the gospel than Jesus’ life, death & resurrection. Jesus lived the perfect life that none of us could ever live, then He willingly died on the cross so that we could be reunited with God and He rose back to life defeating the grave. We want to make sure that at FBCER we spend this Easter season focused on Jesus so we are having services on Good Friday & Easter Sunday.

Good Friday Service

Join us Friday, April 18 as we gather together to remember the price that Jesus paid for our sins on the cross. We will reflect, respond and read God’s Word together. Childcare will be provided for Babies thru Kindergarten at the First Steps building.

Easter Sunday

Join us on April 20 at either 9:00 or 10:30 as we celebrate the victory that Jesus won for us. Childcare will be offered during both services. Babies thru Three’s at the First Steps building and Pre-k thru 4th grade in the HS Cafeteria. (We will not be having small groups on Easter)

Parents and Students are invited to the Love Waits Banquet on Saturday, April 12th from 6:00 to 8:00pm in the Youth Annex.
