Preparing for Easter Sunday | April 4

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is sunday-prep-banner-1024x288.jpg

Join us for our Easter Sunday services on April 4, where we will reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, consider His burial, and rejoice in His resurrection through song and teaching. There will also be a baptism and a guest sharing his story of salvation by Jesus Christ. Our 9:00 service will be indoors (and livestreamed), with social distancing, masks, and registration required. We will have an outdoor service at 11:00.

For the 11:00am outdoor service, look for sign holders with a QR code on the front sidewalk and near the side parking lot where we’ll gather. Scan the QR code with your phone to access song lyrics for our time of worship. You can also access the lyrics at www.restonbible.org/easterworship. A limited number of printed lyric sheets will also be available for those without mobile devices.
