As I reflect on the recent Easter ministry we have had here at Grace Church, my heart is overflowing with gratitude for how God used our ministry to meet literally thousands of people right where they are and help move them a step closer to where He wants them to be. Below are the attendance figures from our Holiday ministry:

5,000 – Egg-Stravaganza

265 – Good Friday night of Worship

2,372 – Four Easter Services

Easter 2009 was the largest service in the history of our church. Not only that, it was 27% higher than the previous record high which was Easter one year ago. I am so thankful for the team we have here at Grace Church. They all did such an amazing job of putting together these events. But I am even more excited about our church as a whole who have taken seriously our mission to “MEET and MOVE as MANY as POSSIBLE.”

Below are some of the many comments we have received.

Regarding our Saturday Night Easter Service:

"You guys really rocked last night! Happy Easter"

"SEE! I told you that you needed to start the Saturday Night Services SOONER!"

Regarding our Sunday Morning Easter Services:

"That was beyond awesome!"

"I thank God for the entire ministry team that God has raised up here at Grace Church. I don't see how any attendant this Easter Morning could walk away without awareness that Jesus is our RISEN LORD who deserves our love and adoration."

"Thanks for helping my Easter JOY to grow more today."

Regarding the Celebrating Jesus Decade by Decade series:

"Really enjoying the services through the decades HOWEVER, the very best era was the '50s -- just the best!! Sorry, Just had to let you know this -- there are a few older people in the church, too!! See, we were all mature by the time the 70s, 80s, and 90s came around!! haha!"
