Easter Services Planned At Alaska Christian Church

Alaska Christian Church is now preparing for their Easter time service to be held this week.

A pre-Easter Sunday Service will begin on Maundy Thursday, April 21 at 7:30 pm. in the sanctuary. The church will gather for a 30-minute service to commemorate Christ’s journey to the cross. Hymns, scripture readings and the partaking of the Lord’s supper will be observed. This has been a tradition at ACC since the 1940s.

Easter Sunday morning, April 24, a mini sunrise service will begin at 8:45 a.m. preceded by an all church Easter breakfast served by the men and boys of the church. A full breakfast will be offered including egg casserole, biscuits and gravy, fruits, pastries and drinks. Tables will be set in the foyer area for those unable to maneuver the stairs to the fellowship hall.

Easter Sunday Bible school classes will begin at 10:00 a.m. with the grand Easter worship celebration beginning at 10:50 a.m. This service will include special music by the church adult choir with a message by preaching minister Kevin Short and the serving of the Lord’s supper. The church has set an attendance goal of over 100-plus for this service and if this is met, Mr. Short will be preaching from the roof of the church in the following weeks.

Kidz Worship, for children in the fifth grade and younger, will feature an all Easter egg hunt with over 500 brightly colored eggs filled and hid on the church lawn. This will be held during the adult worship time. In case of rain, this event will be moved to the Fellowship Hall. Special activities are also planned during this time for the kids!

Members will adorn the chancel area with memorial or honorary Easter flowers around an old wooden cross. Community members, friends and family are invited to all or any of these events.

The church is located at 7230 Lewisville Road, just west of the old Lewisville Store. For up to date information on ACC visit: http:// netministries.org/ see/churches/ch25311. The church office phone number is 317-383-6300.
