Come celebrate Easter with us

Enjoy the feelings of peace and goodwill that come when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Find Peace in Jesus Christ

In the span of one week, Jesus rewrote humanity’s story. This Holy Week, He can help you start to rewrite your own. We invite you to join us this Easter and follow the example and teachings of the Savior by loving others, loving God, and making changes that will lead to lasting joy and peace in your life.

Walk through the events of Holy Week
SUNDAY: Triumphal Entry

Jesus Christ rides triumphantly into Jerusalem, His followers reverently laying down cloaks and palm fronds in His path. Like everything He did, Jesus Christ’s entrance fulfills prophecy. His arrival in Jerusalem is powerful evidence that God keeps His promises to His children. Our Heavenly Father provided a way for us to overcome sin and death—through His Son, Jesus Christ.

MONDAY: Cleansing of the Temple

After entering Jerusalem, Jesus Christ goes to visit the temple. There, inside His Father’s house, Jesus sees various merchants buying and selling to those passing by. Speaking with unmistakable authority, He commands them to leave. We can take courage knowing that Jesus Christ did what He knew to be right, whether it was popular or not. When we follow Him, we receive the strength to do the same.

TUESDAY: Teaching in Jerusalem

Jesus’s presence in Jerusalem did not go unnoticed by the authorities. On the Temple Mount, they question Jesus in hopes of finding something they can use against Him. But Jesus’s inspired answers reveal no crime, and His enemies only discredit themselves. Despite incredible opposition, the work of Jesus Christ moved on. When we seek His help, we, too, can overcome great challenges.

WEDNESDAY

The events of Wednesday are unknown. But instead of focusing on where Jesus was, we can focus on what Jesus taught during his ministry. Jesus was the Master Teacher. By opening our hearts to Him, we can find answers to life’s most important questions. But to do so, we must be as His disciples were—humble and sincere.

THURSDAY: The Garden of Gethsemane

Jesus observes the Passover with His Apostles in what is often referred to as the Last Supper. Then together they depart to a quiet garden called Gethsemane. But what happens next, He must endure alone. While His friends sleep, Jesus Christ takes upon himself the sins of the world. It was a sacrifice only He could make, and He did so willingly—for you, for all of us.

FRIDAY: Crucifixion and Burial

In the early hours of the morning, Jesus is betrayed into the hands of the local authorities. He is sentenced to death by crucifixion. He dies on the cross that afternoon, with His disciples and accusers present as witnesses. Because Jesus Christ experienced such profound suffering, He has perfect empathy for us when we are in pain, be it physical or spiritual.

SATURDAY: The Tomb

The night before, Jesus Christ’s body had been placed in the tomb. The scriptures are mostly silent on the day after His crucifixion. Likely, this was a day of deep reflection for His followers and their families. Likewise, you and your family are invited to take time to truly think about what Jesus Christ went through and why He was willing to do so.

SUNDAY: The Resurrection

Early in the morning, Mary Magdalene, a friend and follower of Jesus, comes to the tomb to care for Jesus Christ’s body. To her astonishment, she finds the tomb empty. But she is not alone. A man addresses her, a gardener, she supposes. But then He says her name, “Mary.” And she sees. He is Jesus. The Christ lives. Jesus Christ overcame death and was resurrected, and because He lives, all of us will live again.
