Easter at Haymarket Church

Easter is the central Christian holiday – a day when we tell the story of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and celebrate the Good News that even death cannot stop the power of God’s love.  On April 1, as we celebrate Easter, you are invited to celebrate Easter in these ways:

Easter Sunrise Service: Our Easter Sunrise worship service begins at 6:45 AM on Sunday, April 1, on the roof of the Old Bank Building (14951 Washington Street, Haymarket, VA 20169). Celebrate the gift of new life as we greet the dawn on Easter Sunday while overlooking the center of beautiful historic Haymarket.

Easter Sunday worship with Pancake Breakfast and free Easter Petting Zoo: Sunday, April 11, at Gravely Elementary School (4670 Waverly Farm Drive, Haymarket, VA 20169).  Bring the family for a free pancake breakfast starting at 9:00 AM, worship for the whole family at 10:00 AM, and a petting zoo in the parking lot immediately after worship!  The petting zoo will include bunnies, baby chickens, and sheep.  Spend your Easter morning having family-friendly fun at Haymarket Church!

Easter Petting Zoo: Celebrate the joys and wonders of Easter at Haymarket Church’s Easter morning petting zoo.  Immediately after worship on Sunday, April 1, there will be a free petting zoo (including sheep, bunnies, baby chickens, and more!) in the parking lot of Gravely Elementary School.  Worship with the whole family at 10 AM and then have some fun afterwards.  Be sure to invite a friend for a great morning of worship and fun!

Children in Worship on Easter: We believe in creating opportunities for families to worship together, especially on important holidays like Easter, because we believe that it helps give children a foundation for a lifetime of faith. Therefore, on Easter Sunday, there will be no children’s church, and we will be encouraging all children to stay in worship with their parents. There will be extra resources provided to help children engage in worship, there will be extra adults available to sit with families who need a little extra help, and our nursery will be open for children from birth through 5 years old.  Experience the joy of Easter together!
