Churches prepare for Easter in Antioch

This weekend is Easter Sunday and Antioch will be loaded with activities for worshipers and those seeking to have a little fun.

One of the larger events of the weekend will be hosted by Lakeshore Christian Church.

The church is holding a Community Easter Celebration Sunday at 10 a.m. However, don’t go to the church looking for worship time. This weekend’s celebration will be held in the football stadium at Ezell-Harding Christian School, 574 Bell Road.

The Spring Easter Event at Lighthouse Christian Fellowship, 5100 Blue Hole Road, is also sure entertain families. This event is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature an egg hunt, food, games, music, inflatables, and a Road to Resurrection Drama. The event is free and all families are welcome.

Many area churches will be holding special services and special schedules Sunday. Check with the church of your choice for details.

Remember that all area schools, including Metro Nashville Public Schools, Lighthouse Christian School, and Ezell-Harding Christian School are closed Friday for Good Friday. Ezell-Harding Christian School will be closed Monday, April 17, as well.
