Easter Sunday is coming! We can’t think of a better time to celebrate the Resurrection of our King Jesus, who defeated the power of Sin and Death! Even though we are ‘socially distanced,’ we are providing ways to engage, reflect, and celebrate together!
Here’s what Calvary Restoration is doing this week:
Good Friday: Video Worship Guide. Matt Whitacre and Isaac Mahoney are putting together a Good Friday video with Worship music and Scripture readings. We’ll send out the Youtube link once it’s finished. Please watch this with your household on Friday evening. Worship, reflect, and pray on this important day.
Easter Sunday: Live Online Zoom Service (10am). We’re having our Sunday Worship Service online, through the program “Zoom.” Zoom will allow us to see one another live and worship Jesus together. We will share in songs, communion, a powerful sermon, and testimonies of “how Jesus changed my life”. Please join our Easter celebration of the Resurrection!
Kids Videos. Amarie Hill is recording daily Bible lesson videos, walking kids through what Jesus did each day leading up to Easter Sunday. Each video has a Bible story, with application for kids and coloring ideas. Thank you, Amarie! These have been posted on our internal facebook page. If you are not in our Facebook group and would like to watch them, please e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request access.
Here is the link to our Easter service. If you click on this link, it should directly connect you to our Easter service without having to enter the meeting ID or password. You can also share this link with your friends and family to invite them to our online service.

About Zoom: Zoom is a program for computer, tablet, or smartphone. It is similar to Skype and Face-time. The benefit of “Zoom” is that it allows a lot of people to participate via webcam in one large meeting at the same time, and it’s free! If you don’t have a zoom account, you can sign up for one here: https://zoom.us/ If you have trouble getting a Zoom account set up, please contact Isaac Mahoney to help you. (Contact info below).

Finally, we know these are difficult times. We long for life to return to "normal." Take heart, and remember: gathered or scattered, we are still the people of God. Welcomed by His grace, washed clean by His blood, and a new creation through His power. We are looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday!
“So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. But there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he comes back.” - 1st Corinthians 15:21-23, NLT.
