    What is your church doing for Easter? Anything special or out of the ordinary?

    Palm Sunday our Music and Drama Ministries are presenting "Written in Red" an hour and 15 minute cantata.

    Easter Sunday is business as usual, with an evangelistic message, choir anthem, and several Easter themed hymns and worship songs.

    What about you?

    We're doing three AM services...two traditional and one contemporary.

    Lots of music, drama, evangelistic and creative message.

    Our pastor likes to do dramatic presentations - a "passion play" of sorts. I pick the music, something that is a narrative of the story, and he makes up the scenes to be acted out, with no dialogue. This year I picked "He's Alive". We're doing it in four parts - each segment of the story done on the day of the traditional celebration of the event - Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. Holy Thursday features Jesus praying in the garden. Good Friday will feature Jesus beaten and hanging on a cross, played by a young Lebanese man who really looks the part of Jesus. I am doing the Andre Crouch song "The Blood Will Never Lose It's Power." The climax is the Don Francisco song "He's Alive" on Easter Sunday about Peter's experience of forgivness.

    Easter was awesome!

    We had a 7am Sunrise (although well after sunrise) Service with a couple hundred international workers and regular church attenders.

    8am we had breakfast, and 9am Sunday School.

    10am we had a great service with our choir singing, lots of great worship, and an evangelistic message from our interim pastor. It was a great day and several decisions were made, prospects were reached, and followup has begun. God is good!

    I know of an IB church that had a 150+ voice choir sing the "Halelujah Chorus" in the morning service! They used this as a tool to see over 200 walk the aisle for salvation that day!
