You are invited to Rocky River Church this Easter Sunday, March 27, 2016. We have four opportunities for you to celebrate Easter, 7:15am (Sunrise Service in our Prayer Garden), 8:30am, 9:45am, and 11:15am. Our services are “come as you are” and we really mean it. But honestly, dress up or dress down, we don’t really care, we just want you here.
And don’t worry, we have a lot of the things you might expect like live music (we have a great band), fun and safe programs for the kids, and messages from the Bible that you can understand. But honestly, what I think you’ll like best is that we have a friendly, welcoming church full of people just like you.
So this Sunday, come celebrate Easter with us. You’ll be glad you did. I hope to see you at 7:15am, 8:30am, 9:45am, or 11:15am.
