Easter is a celebration of a love that conquers all—even death—and it’s a message our world desperately needs right now. This year’s online service includes a time of worship, a spoken word from Nick Benoit, and a message from Ray Johnston. It’s a service with a lesson for us all: Jesus can change everything.

Good Friday Guided Experience

Even though we can’t gather physically for Good Friday, we can worship and reflect on the cross. We’ve designed a Good Friday experience that will be co-led by you in your homes in place of a live-streamed service. This guided time includes reflection, Scripture, and Communion (whatever you have available) that you can experience on your own, with your roommates or family, or virtually with others. Available Friday, April 10 on WillowCreek.TV.

At-Home Holy Week

Prepare your hearts for Easter by reflecting on Christ’s life, death, and resurrection during your time with God and with your family. Here are some resources to help:

Daily Readings

The Journey Through Mark concludes this week with chapters 13–16. Spend time reflecting on Jesus’ journey to the cross each day with readings and videos posted on the Willow Creek app or available online here.

Daily Office Prayer

The practice of the Daily Office invites us into an intentional rhythm of morning, midday, and evening prayer so that we might live more fully in the presence of our resurrected God in this time of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. Download the Podcast or listen online here

Kids Service

Enjoy a 20-minute Easter kids service that includes music, interactive illustrations, and a short teaching on why we celebrate! Watch it here.

Thursday Tenebrae Service

The week leading into Easter is one of the most reflective seasons on the calendar for our church. The Practice is hosting a Tenebrae service that follows the journey of Jesus from the last supper leading up to His sentencing. 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 9 on Facebook
