Easter 2019 is an incredible time for us as a church family–it is a celebration of new life, hope, and our 60th Anniversary as a church!

As we prepare to worship on Easter weekend together, we invite you to fully celebrate Easter by participating in the entire Holy Week experience: Saviour (April 13-14), Palm Sunday (April 14), Maundy Thursday (April 18), Good Friday (April 19), and Easter (April 20-21). 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. No matter your religious background, you’re invited to come to services at Crossings OKC and Crossings Edmond to celebrate with us.

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

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

SAVIOUR CONCERT


Saviour is a pop-classical oratorio which takes its audience from creation through the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ and is a picture of God pursuing His people. Its unique and powerful music will showcase the Voices of Crossings choir and orchestra as well as the esteemed voices of Sandi Patty and contemporary-classical vocal group, Veritas. Saviour will also feature dance performance offerings by Ad Deum Dance Company of Houston, Texas and Arrows International of Oklahoma.

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 (a Jewish holiday celebrating God’s deliverance of the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt), 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! Blessed is the King of Israel” (John 12:13). On Palm Sunday, we understand the people had certain expectations for Jesus as their King and Savior—expectations he would not meet in the way they anticipated.
 
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. On this evening, Jesus surprised his disciples by washing their feet, a task that was normally done by a servant. Afterwards he tells them, “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you” (John 13:15). During the meal, Jesus took bread and wine, and blessed them. He broke the bread, saying “This is my body, given up for you” and offered the wine saying “This is my blood, poured out for you … Do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19-20).

Two identical services will take place in the OKC Venue on April 18. Nursery care (0-3 years) only available in the 6:00 p.m. service.

GOOD FRIDAY

Good Friday focuses on Jesus’ trial, crucifixion, death, and burial. It is the most somber service of the year. Church services generally 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.
 
There is some speculation as to why a day of remembering such dark and bleak events would be referred to as “good” Friday. Regardless of the origin, the name Good Friday is entirely appropriate because the suffering and death of Jesus, as terrible as it was, marked the dramatic culmination of God’s plan to save his people. As we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died, it reminds us of the human sin that caused his death, while at the same time declaring the greatness and wonder of God’s love—that he should submit to death for us.
 
Two identical services will take place in the OKC Sanctuary on April 19. Nursery care (0-3 years) only available in the 6:00 p.m. service.

EASTER SERVICE TIMES


Easter (or Resurrection Sunday)—a foundational Christian holiday—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, and it symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power. Easter is a celebration of Christ’s victory over sin, death, and all destructive forces in people’s lives, and it points ahead to a future resurrection for all who claim Jesus as their Savior
