“Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead!” (Luke 24:6)
Easter is the glory of Christianity. On Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and reflect upon His betrayal, arrest, crucifixion and death. We cannot emphasize enough how important this time of year is for OUR faith and also to help encourage faith in others.
Northstar’s schedule for our church services for Passion Week will be as follows:
- April 14 is Palm Sunday! We will have two services, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. at Blacksburg Middle School. This Sunday is a joyful time of worship that looks back to Jesus’ final, triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-17; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:29-40; John 12:12-19).
- April 19 is Good Friday! This service will be held at 6:00 p.m. at Blacksburg Middle School. It will be approximately one hour, designed for your reflection on the crucifixion. There will be childcare and children’s ministry available.
- April 21 is Easter Sunday! We will have two celebration services at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. at Blacksburg Middle School.

Help us spread the news in the New River Valley! Invite your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to our services!
Pick up some Easter postcards at church in the weeks ahead and pass them out in the community. A personal invitation with your encouragement to attend has a significant likelihood of someone taking a step closer to understanding how much God loves them through Jesus.
