With the ongoing crisis that has come upon America due to COVID-19, Calvary Road Baptist Church has decided to have their Easter Sunday service on Facebook Live. This is in compliance with the government’s executive order last March 31, 2020, when Governor Ralph Northam stated that all residents must stay at home to battle the spread of the coronavirus.
As the baptist church cares for the safety of its churchgoers, they’ve decided that it was best everyone remained at home as they celebrate the Holy Day. With the theme, “He Is Not Here, but Is Risen,” the baptist church aims to inspire hope within these trying times.
“Even if our community cannot celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection in one place in worship, our hearts are still together in rejoicing the salvation Jesus has brought us,” one of the churchgoers in Calvary Road Baptist Church said.
Although events have been postponed due to the outbreak, like the Spring Consignment Sale that was supposed to be last March 28, 2020, the baptist church Alexandria, VA wants to do whatever it can to help followers of Christ continue with their journey even amidst this challenging time.
“We understand that even during these dark and difficult times, God wants us to seek Him. That’s why we want to remind all our fellow Christians in the community to continue praying and having faith in the Lord through our Easter service,” a representative of the Calvary Road Baptist Church said.
Their Easter Sunday service can be viewed on the Facebook page @CalvaryRoadBaptist on April 12, 2020, at 9:30 am and 11:00 am. They’ll also be having an Easter Eve Service on April 11, 2020, at 5:00 pm.
With their ongoing social media campaign, they encourage everyone to not only join their service but also invite new people to discover the love and sacrifice of Christ.
