Just So You Will Know: Keeping Up with GABC

March 18, 2018

Now that “Spring Forward” Time Change is behind us, and Spring Break is coming to an end, it’s time to turn our full attention to Easter, and all of the opportunities that it provides. By the way, in case you have yet to notice, Easter Sunday, April 1, is just two weeks away!

The Easter season at Green Acres officially begins with Easter at the ROC, Saturday, March 24. In case you may not be aware, “The ROC” is our Recreation Outreach Complex, adjacent to the GABC South Campus. Easter at the ROC, provided by our Children’s Ministry, kicks off our Easter season with an afternoon and evening of outdoor activities from 4:00-7:00 p.m. for the entire GABC family. The evening will be complete with bounce houses, food trucks, and music by our Xtreme Praise 4th and 5th Grade ensemble. The instructions are simple—“bring your blankets and lawn chairs.” This is a wonderful opportunity for our whole GABC Family to enjoy the spring weather and kick off the Easter celebration together.

Although the Church Offices will be closed on Friday, March 30, we are offering a special Good Friday worship experience that evening. At 6:30 p.m., Friday, March 30, our Resonate Worship Team offers a Good Friday Worship service in the CrossWalk Conference Center (sorry, no childcare available that evening). Join us for a night of hymns, scripture reading, prayer and time spent reflecting on Jesus, and the phenomenal price paid for our Salvation.

Easter Sunday begins bright and early on April 1, at Cathedral in the Pines Memorial Park. The Sunrise Celebration begins promptly at 7:00 a.m., just as the sun peeks over the eastern horizon, and ends about 30 minutes later, following a time of music, prayer and a unique perspective on the significance of the events surrounding that first Easter. When Sunrise Celebration concludes, you will have plenty of time to make the trip to Main Campus or South Campus as our day of Easter worship continues with our regular SMBS and Worship schedule. In fact, if you, like many of our early Easter morning folks, prefer to wear your “outdoor” clothes to the Sunrise Celebration, you will still have plenty of time to go back home and change before joining the rest of the GABC Family for SMBS and Worship at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m.

As always, we are expecting to welcome a large group of worshippers Easter Sunday morning. Just as an expression of hospitality, we encourage you to consider attending one of the 9:00 a.m. services, either Celebration or Resonate. Or, you might want to take this opportunity to join our South Campus congregation for worship at 10:30 a.m. in their new Worship Center, while still enjoying Pastor David’s preaching “live” by video.

Easter is a unique opportunity to worship, to celebrate and to enjoy the fellowship of the GABC Family. Do not miss a moment.
