There's a word that you will be hearing a lot of these next several weeks because it's the name of our new series beginning Easter weekend at The Orchard!

We're excited to be taking six weeks to journey through the scriptures to find out what the Bible has to say about simplifying our lives.

Here's the breakdown:

simple.religion
simple.marriage
simple.friendships
simple.time

simple.parenting

simple.church

It's going to be a great series AND a great Easter weekend!

This year, we have added a fourth service Easter weekend to accommodate the crowds that we are expecting.

Saturday, April 15th 4:30pm & 6:30pm (with a big Easter Egg Hunt between the two services!)
Sunday, April 16th 9:00am & 10:45am

Not that it's all about the numbers (although, numbers are a great indicator of whether or not we're effectively connecting with our community…) but check out the incredible opportunity we have had these past few Easters and the growth that has taken place:

2003: 450
2004: 573
2005: 931

2006:???

We're expecting between 1200-1500 people to walk through our doors Easter weekend!

Are you ready? Have you starting inviting people?

This weekend we are going to put a tool into your hands to help make it easier than ever to invite your unchurched friends and family members to the Orchard Easter weekend!

See you Sunday!
