Easter is part of an entire week of exploring and experiencing what it means to follow Jesus. During Holy Week we celebrate God’s love for us as we journey with Jesus through the final moments of his life, his death on the cross, and his resurrection from the grave. Come and see why this week is the most important week in the entire year!
