These worship service does not actually end. After stripping the altar, we leave in silence to continue our journey to the cross on Good Friday. 

Friday April 18: Good Friday

Good Friday services are somber, reflective services focusing on the trial and death of Jesus. Minimal light is used, to put worshipers in the darkness of what Jesus experienced.

Grace Campus:12:00 pm & 7:00 pm services will be a Tenebrae Service, which is a powerful service that enacts Christ's last hours, with songs by the choir.

Suntree Campus: 12:00 pm & 7:00 pm traditional service  

Saturday April 19:  Easter Vigil

Suntree campus: 5:00 - 6:30 pm, As we wait in the reality of Jesus’ death, we gather for an Easter Vigil.  This service contemplates the multitude of emotions we experience as we ponder Good Friday and anticipate Easter Sunday.  Readings and songs lead us further in our meditation and contemplation.

Easter Sunday April 20:

There will be a sunrise service at 6:30 in Rotary Park, hosted by the Suntree Viera Area Association of churches (SVAAC)

Easter Sunday dawns with new light and life as we gather to hear the angel declare that Jesus is “not here.  He is risen, just like he said!”  The sanctuary is transformed by the beauty of flowers and ribbons.  The color is white, announcing the new life we all receive in Christ.  A full procession leads us in celebrating God’s victory over the power of death.  Through music, readings and prayers we declare once again that CHRIST IS RISEN, and that death no longer holds us.

Grace Campus: 9:00 am Traditional liturgy, 6:00 pm informal service
Suntree Campus: 8:00 am Traditional liturgy, 9:30 am contemporary service, 11:00 am traditional liturgy
