Holy Weekend! It’s going to be a Great Easter!

I love my church! This weekend we have an INCREDIBLE line up. It starts tomorrow night with “Embrace the Cross,” a Good Friday Experience  This year though, we’ve gone to great lengths to create a Good Friday FAMILY Experience. It’s called “Journey through the Passion.” It’s an interactive, parent guided walk though Holy Week. We just can’t wait.

On Saturday, we’re hosting an “Egg-a-Palooza.” Essentially, we want as many families as possible to attend on Saturday night so we have plenty of room on Sunday… so we’re throwing a fun family party before our Saturday service. It’s going to be epic. I’ll post next week on what we did and how we pulled it off. Stay tuned.

Also, normally in Texas, I say to pray for rain… but on Friday and Saturday, pray it doesn’t rain.

Good Friday family experience

I’m excited about what Gateway is offering families this year for Good Friday. We’ll have Easter services on Saturday and Sunday, but we’ll offer a unique experience on Friday. From 5-9, we’ll have several “choose-your-own-adventure” type experiences for people to choose from. We’ll have dramas, music, worship, short teachings, short films, audio experience of the cross, art installation and tactile experience (with a several crucification nails from the 1st century), a guided prayer experience and several other options. All these things are happening multiple times during the evening all in different venues. Due to the nature of Good Friday, many of the venues are not really child appropriate, so we are hosting a family experience in addition to childcare for kids under the age of 4.

The family experience will feature songs and a short film about Good Friday (I wrote about it here) which we’ve broken down into parts where we can expound on what was happening and guide families in discussion around the events of Good Friday.
