Easter a time for celebration
EASTER is around the corner and will provide an ideal time for families to come together and celebrate their faith.
The significant Christian celebration is one of the best-attended church services of the year, with families coming together to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus.
Little Arwen Hull, aged five months, will celebrate her first Easter at the New Life Centre in Mundubbera.
Arwen’s grandmother, Bonnie Trevanion, was excited about Arwen’s first Easter and said it would be “very much about our family and a celebration of our faith”.
While Easter is about Christ’s crucifixion, worship would focus on his resurrection, which provided the foundation of Christianity.
Ms Trevanion said Easter was not necessarily a solemn occasion, but rather a chance to rejoice.
“What greater love is there than a god who gave his son and then raised him back from the dead so that all could be saved,” she said.
“There is nothing that we can do to separate God’s love for us.”
Ms Trevanion is a worship leader at the church and liked how music was part of the service.
She said Arwen enjoyed going to worship and “rocked on to the music”.
“Music speaks to people and has been proven to trigger all parts of the brain,” Ms Trevanion said.
“Music is a very important part of every service, no matter what denomination you are in.”
