Eastridge Community Church is holding three Easter services this year, including a Saturday service at 6 p.m. and two Sunday services at 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. The church is located at 863 Ga. Highway 142, Covington.
Lead Pastor Scott Moore will explore how people should approach life with the hope promised by the resurrection of Jesus.
"What happened that day, more than 2000 years ago? Before Jesus went to the cross, he prepared 12 disciples and touched thousands of lives to bring hope and restore relationship between God and mankind. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus was able to accomplish this amazing task. Jesus prepared these men and touched all of those lives to show Christians how to live," Moore said.
"In celebrating His death and resurrection, one of the ways this can be done is by living a life consistent with how Jesus instructed the disciples to live. Not only do Christians need to have character, they also have a job to do. Eastridge will discuss how every Christian has a purpose and should plug into a local church."
As part of its celebration of Jesus' life, death and resurrection, Eastridge is officially announcing its plans to launch a new church campus in the Jackson Lake area this August.
"God chose people, as Christians, to carry the message of His love to the world, to share the amazing hope in Christ," Moore said.
In an effort to spread God's message. Eastridge works with other area churches, nonprofit groups and local and foreign missions and plans to launch a new church campus in the Jackson Lake area.
"We have many families who live in the Jackson Lake area. As a church, we firmly believe that resources are better used to serve that area with an extension campus rather than adding on or building a larger facility on the main campus," said Gary Thompson, pastor of the Jackson Lake campus.
