Easter is coming! Easter is the most anticipated and attended weekend on the Christian calendar. I can hardly wait to celebrate the resurrection with the @Biltmore family in one of the 9 services! (View schedule here).
Here are ways to maximize Easter and get ready for the celebration:
1. Pray for your church and yourself
Pray for your church leaders
Pray for God to move in power
Pray for open hearts
Pray for Christians to reach out and invite in the coming week
(Ephesians 6:18-20; Ephesians 3:20-21; Exodus 33:18; Matthew 9:38)
2. Invite someone to go to church with you
Most studies show that almost 75% of people are open to attending a church when invited by someone they know and respect. While a personal invitation is usually best, use social media tools like Twitter, Facebook, etc. to invite. Hover over the video trailer below and select the airplane icon to share the new teaching series we will kick off at Easter.
3. Serve (Romans 12:11)
Like many churches, we have additional services Easter weekend. We need more hands on deck in every ministry at every campus (at Biltmore, with no Connect Groups Easter weekend, you can serve one hour and attend a service one hour J)
4. Go and celebrate!
The tomb is empty! He is risen, just as He Said! (Matthew 28:6) Celebrate His resurrection at a church where the name of Jesus is lifted high and His Word is proclaimed without apology.
Soli deo Gloria! Happy Easter!
