Easter Week

Easter Week – Easter week can be a busy time of the year: visiting family and other spring plans. However, we must 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.

Palm Sunday – CFBC’s Easter week will begin on March 24th 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).
