Celebrate Easter at Dortches Baptist Church!
We have several opportunities for you to worship with your family this Easter Season.
Spring Fling on March 24th
Join us March 24th for our Spring Fling and Easter Egg Hung.
Children in Pre-K thru 5th Grade are invited for a time fun fun, games, and free food, starting at 11:00 AM. Please visit our Spring Fling Information Page for more details.
Maundy Thursday on March 29th
Traditionally, the Thursday of Holy week is called Maundy Thursday, from the Latin “Mandatum” (Mandate), referring the the “New Command” Christ gave on the night he was betrayed that we “Love one another” as he has loved us (John 13:34-35). On that same Thursday, the other gospels report that Jesus instituted the ordinance of Communion after he gathered with his disciples for a final meal. At the end of the meal, he broke bread, saying “Do this in remembrance of me.”
In imitation and obedience to Christ, we will gather in the Family Life Center for a meal. Our deacons will live out their identity as “servants” at this meal by serving the food. After the meal, we will worship around the dinner table by hearing scriptures and sharing communion. All who profess Christ are invited to partake.
Easter Sunday on April 1st
Please Note: We follow a special Sunday Morning schedule for Easter Sunday. Set your alarms and plan to join us early as we celebrate the risen “son” as we witness the rising “sun” early in the morning.
