Easter week can be a busy time of the year: visiting family and other spring plans. However, it is important that we take a step back and remember why Easter is such a big deal. CFBC offers a place for you to remember the reason for Easter. Find out more about our Easter week services below.
CFBC’s Easter week will begin on April 2nd! We will celebrate Jesus’ coming to Jerusalem. All attendees of the service will leave with their very own palm branch. What a great reminder! Make sure to bring your kids or grandkids with you because we will have an Easter Egg Hunt at the end of the service (around 11:30ish).
Then on Thursday, April 6th we will meet again for a Maundy Thursday service. This is a time where we remember Jesus’ breaking of bread and look toward the sacrifice that he will (has) made. This service will include: worship, communion, and a brief message. This service will begin at 7pm.
On Good Friday CFBC will partner with different churches in the community to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for all people. This service is powerful and offers great insight into the real meaning of Easter. CFBC will meet at Grace Church in Chester, IL. and celebrate as one unified community of believers. This service will begin at 7pm.
Join us as we come together early in the morning on Easter Sunday! We will meet as the sun is rising at the Chester Gazebo Park (beside the Popeye store). It is a quick service that is filled with worship, communion, and Scripture. At the conclusion of service we will have a free breakfast for you back at Chester First Baptist Church’s “Fellowship Hall”. The breakfast will be open from 7am-8am.
On Easter Sunday we will have two services for your convenience. Whichever one fits you best we hope you come to! We will have a service at 8:00am and then another at 10:30am. We will also live stream the 10:30am service on Facebook.
