The celebration of the Holy Week is a tradition most North American churches practice. Parishioners choose to dress in Sunday’s best, invite visitors to worship service, and pay homage to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Eastchester Church chooses to reflect on the Savior’s sacrifice by giving it the pomp and circumstance the commemoration deserves, bringing the love story between Jesus and the world to life in its annual musical presentation entitled “The Resurrection”.
“The Resurrection”, a dramatic retelling of the death and physical reappearance of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, will be in its sixth run and Eastchester Church is anticipating record-attending performances this year. “We believe the dramatic presentation lends to a reconnection with the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. It presents the powerful message of love which is the key to understanding the Easter event.” said Rev. Eric J. Hall, pastor and producer of the musical.
The performance is free and the church excitedly welcomes the community to attend. “It’s an incredible opportunity for you and your family to see and to feel what the resurrection of Jesus Christ might have been like,” said Hall, “The presentation has been known to bring attendees to tears and others leave encouraged by their faith and the personal encounter they just had with Jesus.”
“The Resurrection” has three performances during the Holy Week: Palm Sunday, March 25th, 10:30 a.m. EST; Holy Saturday, March 31st, 7:30 p.m. EST; and Easter Sunday, April 1st, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. EST. Reservations can be scheduled using the church’s website, eastchesterchurch.org, under the ‘Events’ tab.
