Exploring the Richness of Holy Week: 2024 Spokane Area Easter Services and Events

News Story by FāVS Staff

“He is risen!” “Truly he is risen!” These ancient proclamations will echo through churches across the region on Resurrection Sunday, or Easter. Regardless of denomination – Pentecostal, Catholic, Lutheran, or United Church of Christ – each congregation will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection uniquely.

Sunrise services, opportunities to “Nail Their Pain to the Cross” on Good Friday with sanctuaries open all day, candlelight vigils, communion services, and family Easter egg hunts following worship are among the diverse traditions marking the pivotal event in Christianity.

Please note the local Eastern Orthodox churches will celebrate Easter Holy Week starting with Palm Sunday on April 28 and ending with their “Great and Holy Pascha” on May 5. They use the Julian calendar instead of the Gregorian.

If you don’t see your church listed below and would like to have it added, please send your service times to Cassy Benefield at [email protected]
