CHILDRESS – Unlike last year with COVID-19 restrictions, Childress churches are planning Easter services.
“We are excited about celebrating Easter this year as a church family since we could only have a virtual service last year,” said First Baptist Church Youth Minister Tim Medley. “All are welcome to attend as we celebrate our risen Savior.”
On Easter Sunday, First Baptist Church will have a Bible study for all ages at 9:30 a.m. followed by a morning Easter Service at 10:45 a.m. Medley said the service will also be streamed online through its Facebook page and YouTube channel for those who would like to worship online.
The First United Methodist Church will have Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. and the Easter service will follow at 10:40 a.m. Rev Louis W. Ellerbrook invites people to come hear the Easter Story, to celebrate and be reminded with friends and family that life can and should be different because Jesus rose to life and left his tomb breaking the power sin and death have over people
“We celebrate the promise we have that we don’t have to live a life of sin,” Ellerbrook said. “Death does not get the final word. Life, creation will be restored to its original created purpose.”
Ellerbrook said there will also be an Easter Egg hunt for kids during Sunday School and an opportunity for families to have their picture taken together.
The Church of Christ’s Easter service is at 10:30 a.m.
“It is a great opportunity to celebrate our risen Savior,” Minister Trey Morgan said. “I feel that God has given me salvation, a family, food, clothing, a home, etc. He has saved me, forgiven me and promised me heaven. How can I NOT worship Him?”
Calvary Baptist Church will have its Bible Study at 9:45 a.m. and Easter service at 10:45 a.m.
“With everything this past year, Easter is a great time to come together with fellow Christians to thank Him for His faithfulness and His love for us demonstrated through Easter,” Pastor Terry Williams said.
