Easter Services
 Pastor's Preview:

Dear Hope Family,
We're about to celebrate the greatest victory of all time - the resurrection of our Lord on Easter Weekend! Tell your friends! Call your neighbors! Text your co-workers! Tweet your twitters! Snap your chatters! Instagram & Facebook your ... uh ... well, you get the idea! Gather up the kids! Drag along your enemies (who knows, it might help)! Invite them all to come and join the resurrection party at Hope! We've added extra Easter Services & we're going all out again this year ...  because if there's just one weekend of services that sums up our hope as Christians, it's Easter!
Easter Celebration Services are on Saturday at 1:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, 7:00 pm, and Sunday at 7:00 am, 9:00 am, 11:00 am & 5:00 pm. We also have a traditional Sunrise Service in the Chapel on Sunday at 6:33 am (the precise minute of sunrise)!
Three Easter tips for you faithful E-news readers:
1)  Please make sure to be in your seats at the top of the hour.  Trust me - y ou don't want to miss the opener! In fact, you'll enjoy live music from our talented musicians starting 15 minutes before each service.
2)  Please  bring your kids to our Easter Services, even those who typically attend HopeKids during worship - they'll love it! For an added bonus, bring them on Saturday - starting one hour before each service - to our wildly popular Kids Easter Eggstravaganza .
3)  Please take advantage of our  park-n-ride lots (click for map) at the more popular and crowded services this Easter Weekend. It's easier access for you, and our shuttle buses will deliver you right to the front doors of the church before each service!
It's Friday. But Sunday's comin'!
And I believe our world needs Easter Sunday ... even more than we might care to admit. Come and see!

P.S. Good Friday Services, featuring the 7 Last Words of Jesus, today at HOPE: 12:00 pm & 7:00 pm. The empty tomb celebration this weekend (Saturday/Sunday) will be far more meaningful to you and yours if you first spend some quality time at the cross today (Friday).
