Outdoor laser show

We are so excited to be able to present the story of Easter in a truly unique way – through an outdoor laser show projected onto a 25 foot screen! “Easter is for you” tells the story of Easter and why it matters to every person. Each Friday and Saturday night in April, we will share this amazing story through the awesome medium of a laser show. 

Lasers are amazing, but the story is even better!

In this unique format, we’ll provide the deeper meaning behind the day that many people only know as a holiday about candy and gifts. Grounded in a historical event that changed the world, Easter is the story of God’s love for all people. It’s the story of a love so strong that no power would stop it. A story of rescue, redemption, and reconciliation that our culture needs today.

Second Baptist is shining the story of Jesus into the community for all those who need to hear its truth

So many people are searching for their identity and for meaning in their lives. Jesus died and rose again so that each person could find their identity in Him, so that no one would ever have to wonder who they were, or whether they matter. Jesus died for each of us – we are all cherished and valued, beyond anything we can imagine. Jesus eagerly awaits for every one to accept Him. So, we are telling His story in a way that everyone can know that Jesus loves them. It is our hope that this laser show makes it clear that anyone can turn to Jesus and find forgiveness, reconciliation, and everlasting life.  

Easter is the story of how this is all made possible in and through Jesus. Easter is for everyone. Easter is for you.

Easter is for You is an outdoor event, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on. The show will last about an hour, and start each night at dark (about 8:30 PM). We ask that you bring no pets, food, or other items which would be inappropriate for a church environment. Please, no photography or video of any kind as the show is copyright protected.  Keep informed on the latest by following us on facebook!

2016 Easter Egg Hunt

2016 Easter Egg Hunt and Cookout

We had such a great day at Second Baptist – sharing the story of hope of Jesus’ resurrection, hunting eggs, and having a great cookout.

Tomorrow is Resurrection Day (also known Easter) where we celebrate the Risen Savior! A little over 2,000 years ago, the disciples were gathered together, grieving and scared. They did not know that just one more evening was all that was between their great sadness and the greatest event that has ever occurred in history. The shadow of the cross, the finality of a stone rolled into place, and the fear of the unknown would all soon be swept away by the great victory over death. Jesus would arise!

Luk 24:46-52 KJV – 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. 50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

 

Easter 2013 – Second Baptist Church

Easter 2013 – Second Baptist Church

Easter is a special time for all Christians. A time when we remember Jesus and the tomb He left empty. His resurrection is our assurance now and our future promise.

We had our annual Egg Hunt and cookout on Saturday (check out the slides below). What a great time of fellowship and fun. We love our new property – it is such a great place for us to spend time together. Instead of ushers, teachers, deacons, and singers, there are grillers, egg hiders, egg hunters, and friends. 

The weather did not cooperate with our plans for an outdoor sunrise service, but we had special time that morning inside. There is something about the early morning that makes worship extra special. After service, we all headed out to eat breakfast together. Then, it was back to the church for Sunday School and our regular service. In that sense, this day was similar to the days when folks would travel to church and spend a good part of the day there, eat a meal, and have more church. While times have changed, the object of our faith has not changed. 

It was a wonderful Easter – thank You Lord for the special time You allowed us to have, and thank You Lord for that empty tomb.
