Easter Sunday: It may look different this year, but its message is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow | Around The Town

Jesus Tomb
“He is not here; he has risen!” Luke 24:6-7 in The Holy Bible
With social distancing mandates across the nation and world, many folks will not be able to dress in their best and head to church to fill the pews this Easter Sunday, April 12. However, the church, which is a body of believers, will still gather to remember the crucifixion and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ nearly 2,000 years ago.
Churches are broadcasting virtually, through newly created YouTube channels and other video streaming venues. Others are holding drive-in style services in which attendees stay in their respective cars to hear the powerful message.
Perhaps these newly constructed services will reach more people than what could typically fit inside church buildings.
This Easter Sunday and every day remember Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. Three days later HE was resurrected from the grave and ascended to sit at the right hand of God the father. Today, through Christ we have been resurrected into a new life- not because of what we did but because of what HE did!
Here are some Bible verses you and your family can share together this Easter Sunday!
