This year, Easter is on April 4th, which means it’s right around the corner. With only a couple weeks remaining in the month of March, it’s time to start planning for how you’ll celebrate Easter this year. While there are many ways you can choose to celebrate this special holiday, this week’s Encounter Church blog post discusses some important reasons why you may want to consider attending a church service this year.
Encounter Church is a non-denominational church in Denver that offers a wide range of local events, including church ministries for all ages, Bible studies, prayer sessions, volunteering opportunities, and more. We believe in bringing the community together to help teach and share the word and love of God. Read this week’s blog post to learn more about why Easter church services are important, and join one of our worship services in Denver today!
Why Is Celebrating Easter Important?
Easter is the most important celebration in the Christian calendar. It symbolizes the day that God raised his son Jesus from the dead, as well as the destruction of the power of sin and death forever. It’s also a celebration of the opening of Heaven with the gift of eternal life to everyone.
Why Attend Church on Easter?
There are many ways to celebrate Easter, from prayer sessions to Easter egg hunts and everything in between. However, on this special day, we believe that attending a church service is one of the most important and meaningful ways you can celebrate. Below you will find six important reasons to attend a church service this Easter. To learn more about the services available at Encounter Church, reach out to our staff in Denver today!
#1: It Reminds You of Easter’s True Purpose
Easter should be a time for fun festivities and celebrations, but it’s important that through all of that, we don’t lose sight of the real reason we are able to celebrate. Attending a church service will help you focus on what really founded this special holiday, which is Jesus’s sacrifice for humanity.
#2: It’s a Time for Family
Who doesn’t love some quality family time? Going to church on Easter is a great way to create some needed family time. By attending an Easter church service, you can come together as a family and really enjoy each other’s company without any festivities or other events getting in the way. With one common focus, going to church will bring you closer than ever, creating trust between each family member as well.
Another great reason to attend a church service on Easter is to create tradition. Studies show that families that engage in frequent tradition tend to have a stronger connection and bond than families that do not. They help provide every family member with a sense that they are a part of something special and unique. If attending an Easter service becomes something you do every year, it will serve as an event to look forward to as well.
#3: It’s Humbling
When you attend a church service, you’re reminded that there are much larger, more significant things that exist in the world than just you and your family. Even if you don’t necessarily believe in the resurrection of Jesus and you view it more as an anecdote, it is still a good reminder that there are many bigger things going on around us.
When life gets busy, it can be easy to forget this. We can get wrapped up in work, school, taking care of children, etc. That’s why it’s important to attend a church service, so we can sit back and refocus on what really matters.
#4: Easter Is Hopeful
Easter is a time for hope, and attending church services can be a great way to see this in action. The holiday promises life after death, and is a great example of a selfless individual really caring about others. With all of the craziness going on in the world right now, the uplifting messages found throughout a church service can help us lighten the burden, even if it’s only for a little while.
#5: It Helps You Grow Spiritually
Whether you are already devoted to God, or you’re looking to expand your spirituality, Easter is a great time to do so. It offers a chance to learn about God, as the preacher will likely start from the very beginning, so you can learn as you go.
Easter is at the very heart of Christianity, so it will likely be explained, in detail, from the beginning, and things will hopefully begin to make sense to you.
No matter what, attending an Easter service can only help you keep your mind open — it can’t hurt you to learn more about the reason for the season.
#6: It’s a Chance to Get Fancy
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began a year ago, most of us have spent a lot of time inside, which means we don’t really have a need to dress up the way we used to. If you’re looking for a reason to wear something nice and get a little fancy, Easter service is the perfect time to do so! You don’t have to dress like you’re headed to the red carpet, but it might feel nice to do your hair, throw on a little makeup, or wear your best dress or shirt.
Make Easter Special This Year
Easter is a time for many fun festivities, including eggs dying and hunts, yummy candy and brunch, quality time spent with those you love, and more. However, in modern-day America, it can sometimes be easy to forget the important origin of this special holiday. That’s why we believe that everyone should make attending a church service a priority this year.
