Easter

We invite you to join us for a Sunday Morning service so that you can experience what God is doing at Gloucester Point Baptist Church.

Easter is April 17, 2022!

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!
Since 1984 GPBC has erected a cross on Maundy Thursday, draped in black to remind us of the darkness of the coming Good Friday but gloriously filled with beautiful flowers before Sonrise on Easter Sunday symbolizing the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ!
The cross serves as a symbol of Hope for all who pass by. More then ever at this time of uncertainty in our lives, we need to know the Hope in Jesus!
He Is Risen! He Lives! Happy Easter!
Blessings Everyone!

4/10/2022 – Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is an Easter celebration that commemorates Jesus making his triumphal entrance into Jerusalem. The event took place one week prior to His resurrection. On Palm Sunday, the celebration quickly spread throughout the whole city. People even threw down their cloaks on the path where Jesus rode as an act of homage and submission. The palms we wave in our Palm Sunday celebrations represent the palms that were waved by the crowd and placed in Jesus’ path when he rode the donkey into Jerusalem.


 


4/14/2021 – Maundy Thursday  Seder Service 7PM

Join us at 7:00 PM for our Maundy Thursday Seder Service in the Fellowship Hall. So that we can properly prepare, please signup in the Narthex.
Please Note: Children are welcome to attend, but please note that
sampling of symbolic foods will be included in the service.
This service will allow us to experience and learn about the ceremony that started with Israel’s liberation from slavery and ultimately became a blessing for the world through salvation from sin.

Maundy Thursday is observed the Thursday before Easter and commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified.

Maundy is our English word from the Latin meaning mandate.  The Lord Jesus Christ on the night of His betrayal gave His disciples a new mandate or command.  Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance of me.”  Maundy Thursday serves as our opportunity to remember through faith, Jesus paid our price to redeem us from eternal death and give us eternal life.

We depart in silence. Reflect on Christ’s suffering to save us from the grip of Satan! Return Easter Sunday Morning joyfully, singing praises to the Only Resurrected Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
