If you’re not sure about going to church this Easter, or simply cannot physically get to church, I would encourage you to watch church online this Easter and check out the following services from two of my favorite churches: Crosspoint (in Nashville, TN) and Christ Fellowship (Palm Beach Gardens, FL).
Looking to watch church online anytime? I have a list for you…
Actually, those locations aren’t exactly accurate: both churches describe themselves as “one church that meets in multiple locations” and both have several different campuses around their respective cities. You see, Christ Fellowship was my church home from the time I came to know Christ when I lived in Jupiter, FL to nine years later when I moved up here to Nashville. Crosspoint has been my church home since 2010.
I love both deeply.
That’s one reason I’m so grateful both offer online services – not only for when I’m traveling and can’t make it to service in person, but so that I can continue to feel like I’m a part of my church families no matter where I am in the world.
I realize Easter is one of those special times of year for multiple reasons:
-for those of us who call Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we reflect on His crucifixion and celebrate His resurrection
-for those who are not Christians, it represents a time to question – a time to wonder – a time to ponder. It also represents a certain safety in exploring faith…
Yet I recognize (as someone who didn’t grow up in the church), that walking into a church on Easter Sunday can seem extremely intimidating. While most churches go out of their way to make people feel welcome on any given Sunday, they are out in full force on Easter Sunday. This simple act of hospitality can seem overwhelming to those of us who have never experienced the warmth of God’s unconditional love, the hope of His grace or the promise of His forgiveness…
So whether you find yourself simply on the road away from your church home or align with this latter group I just mentioned, I would encourage you to check out one of my two church homes’ online services this Easter!

Just curious, would you be more likely to walk into a new church if you were first able to experience it online?
