Easter 2020 Worship Guide

It is Easter Sunday in 2020 and churches across the world will not meet together due to a pandemic that has swept over every nation. Yet still, as Pastors preach to empty rooms, they are all reminded of the greatest empty room in all of history - the tomb of Jesus Christ!

We aren't together in body, but we are in spirit because the Spirit of Christ dwells in all of us. Won't you join together with the rest of your brother and sisters, and invite as many people as possible to join with us this Easter as stream our worship gathering online?

Get Dressed Up! That's right. Get out of the pajamas and sweats and put on your best Easter outfit. Snap a picture of yourself or your family and post it in the comments when you sign on. And if you don't get dressed up, post a pic anyway. We miss your face! #TheTownEaster when you post up.

Prepare. If you have pre-school aged kids, you can access a visual help guide for the sermon content by clicking here.  For older kids you can download a visual guide here.
Get online early and invite friends to a watch party and let them know what time everything starts. Tag people, share to timelines. Do your part to build up the body of Christ online and to invite others into worship.

Parents. You may want to pick up the Jesus Storybook Bible and read the Easter account.

Call to Worship. Around 10am turn on some worship music in your house. Call the family together and have everyone read a few passages of favorite Scripture together. If you are single, get on a Zoom or other network call with some brothers and sisters and Christ. Maybe tune into the live feed together.

Here are the songs we are singing. If you'd like lyrics to sing along, feel free to Google the lyrics and pull together a convenient document. If you feel so led, post up the lyrics in the comments for others to follow along.

Beautiful Name
Happy Day
Death Was Arrested
Graves into Gardens

Read and Pray. Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24 and John 20
