On Easter Sunday, people from across the globe will join together in celebration of the resurrection Jesus Christ. Many churches choose to refer to the holiday as Resurrection Day because of its commercialization, but it is typically the most attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches. Wave Church, located in Virginia Beach, is preparing for Easter weekend with The Victor, The Veil, & The Vantage Point which begins Good Friday. This mixture of incredible productions is a weekend of celebrations to honor the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Wave Church has high hopes that people from all walks of life would come to celebrate what Jesus has done for all humanity through an incredible Easter weekend with options for every age. Events will begin with The Victor which will take place on Good Friday evening at 7:30. The festivities continue on Easter Sunday morning at 9 and 11 a.m. with The Veil and will conclude Sunday evening at 6:00 with The Vantage Point. Pastors Steve and Sharon Kelly are excited to have the community share in this time of celebration. There will be communion, beautiful praise and worship and a powerful message. Pastor Steve said:
We are very excited to share our Easter services with the community. Our approach is one with the vision that many people would come to church to experience an excellent production and, in turn, hear the message of Jesus and all that He has done for us.
Wave Church has always been a community focused organization where people matter. This creative approach to this traditional holiday offers a breath of fresh air for those looking for a local church to become a part of. Wave is a growing church that is changing their world one life at a time. It is not only a beacon within the Hampton Roads community, but the network of Wave Churches continue to impact and influence lives nationally and internationally.
Good Friday service, The Victor, will have a traditional approach and communion will be offered. On Easter Sunday morning, The Veil will be a medley of inspirational teaching from Pastor Steve along with incredible musical features by the Wave Church Worship and Creative Arts Team. Easter Sunday night, The Vantage Point will bring answers to people in search of truth.
A musically talented team, state-of-the-art venue and celebration of the life of Jesus all comes to fruition on this coming weekend. In addition to this creative presentation, many activities will take place for the children at Wave Church including a petting zoo, available before and after each morning service, and an incredible helicopter Easter egg drop with 12,000 candy-filled eggs after the evening service on Sunday. As always, this will truly be a fun-filled event for the entire family.
This musical production and Easter message will be offered at the Great Neck campus, located at 1000 N. Great Neck Road, at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. as well as their Seaboard Road campus, located at 2655 Seaboard Road, at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. These locations are both in Virginia Beach, VA, however, many other Wave Church campuses across the United States will also hold Easter services.

As opposed to a one-day observance, Easter is an entire season celebrated by Christians. In many churches, the season begins with Lent, which is a time of reflection and penance representing the 40 days that Jesus spent alone in the wilderness before starting his ministry. In addition to the religious significance of Easter, there is also a commercial side, which is witnessed by the host of marshmallow chicks and jelly beans featured in stores worldwide during this season.
Wave Church has high hopes for services this weekend and would love for everyone to end this wonderful season by partaking in a weekend of incredible productions known as The Victor, The Veil, & The Vantage Point as it gracefully merges both observations.
