6:00 AM — Beverly’s Ecumenical Easter Sunday Sunrise Service
Rise early and join us for Beverly’s annual Sunrise Service at Lynch Park (55 Ober Street, Beverly). This inclusive service will begin at 6:00 AM as the sun rises on Woodbury Beach (located at the foot of the main parking lot). FBC’s Rev. Kent Harrop will be participating in this beautiful service that invites all to take in the glory of the morning sunrise as we rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter morning. (Rain Location: FBC Beverly)
9:00 AM — Easter Morning Breakfast & Celebration
We invite all to gather in Wilbur Hall before worship to join in the fun, food, and festivities of our Potluck Celebration Breakfast! Breakfast begins at nine o’clock but all are welcome at any time — and are invited to bring any breakfast item you would like to contribute — or just come and enjoy the day!
10:15 AM — Children’s Easter Egg Hunt & Singing Rehearsal Time for Worship
Join us to search for these very special FBC eggs that will be hidden all over the church property (most likely inside but maybe outside if the weather cooperates!). Once we have found all these colorful treasures all the children are asked to please join Julie Flowers in the Nursery Room at 10:30 AM to practice two songs to sing in worship. These are easy and catchy, so all children are welcome to come and sing!
11:00 AM — Worship
Gather with us at First Baptist Church in Beverly this Sunday morning for a very special Easter Sunday Service. All are invited and welcome to attend worship and witness the Ordinance of Baptism and partake in a service of Dedication for Young Children and their Parents. Come and enjoy the glorious sounds of the season and listen to a joyful Easter message delivered by Rev. Kent Harrop as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Communion will be served during Sunday’s worship service on April 12th.

Inviting the Spirit: Lent 2015 Opportunities
Since October your Spiritual Life Committee has been planning to encourage the contemplative/spiritual life of our congregation during the Season of Lent.
Here are some meaningful opportunities to look forward to:
A Self Guided Weekday Meditation, created by Marty Lincoln, in the FBC sanctuary will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 18th, and run through Good Friday, April 3rd. The display will be open from 9:00 AM –4:00 PM each day, Monday – Friday, and each Sunday morning before and after worship. Stop by during your week as your schedule allows and enjoy several interactive meditation stations. We are inspired by Isaiah the prophet: “Listen and your soul will live”.
Homegrown Lenten Devotional: Spiritual Life is developing a devotional that responds to one or both of the following questions: ‘When have you sensed God’s presence?’ and/or ‘When have you responded to God’s presence in your life?’ Deadline for submissions is Sunday, February 8th. Devotionals to be given out beginning on Sunday, February 22nd, the First Sunday of Lent.
