Easter is an opportunity for us to gather together, remember the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and celebrate God’s unfailing, sacrificial love. Come experience Holy Week and Easter with Crossings Community Church!

There are many different service styles, times, and childcare opportunities to suit everyone–explore this page for more details.

As we prepare to worship on Easter weekend together, we invite you to fully celebrate Easter by participating in the entire Holy Week experience: Palm Sunday (April 5), Maundy Thursday (April 9), Good Friday (April 10), and Easter (April 12). Together, these Holy Week events are carefully designed to move you through Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, the Last Supper, his death, and, ultimately, his triumphant resurrection. Participating in all of them will lead you into the deepest, most powerful and meaningful Easter you can have. Come celebrate Holy Week and Easter with Crossings!

We hope you’ll join us for Holy Week and Easter at Crossings!

PALM SUNDAY


Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, which occurred several days before His death. As He rode into the city on a donkey to participate in the festival of Passover, the people of Jerusalem waved palm branches and spread them on the road in front of Him, saying, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”
 
There will by a Palm Processional in all services. Regular service times and schedule will occur.

MAUNDY THURSDAY


Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, emphasizes the Last Supper—a Passover meal Jesus shared with His disciples the night before His death. Derived from the Latin word mandatum, which means “commandment,” Maundy Thursday refers to the commands Jesus gave His disciples at the Last Supper: to follow His example of love with humility by serving one another and to remember His sacrifice, which we do through communion.

Two identical services will take place in the OKC Venue on April 9. Nursery care (0-3 years) only available in the 6:00 p.m. service.

GOOD FRIDAY


Good Friday focuses Jesus’ trial, crucifixion, death and burial. It is the most somber service of the year. Church services revolve around reading the accounts of Jesus’ suffering and death. Often, services are left in darkness with only a simple cross on the altar—symbolizing Christ’s burial and the seemingly lost hope of the Jewish people.
 
Two identical services will take place in the OKC Sanctuary on April 19. Nursery care (0-3 years) is available at the 12:00 p.m. 6:00 p.m. service.

EASTER SERVICE TIMES

Easter is the glorious celebration of the day Jesus, having been in the grave for three days, rose from the dead. It commemorates the central event of the Christian faith. It is a time of rejoicing and hope; it symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power. Easter is a celebration of Christ’s victory over sin and death.
