From now until Easter at Celebration Community Church, the great stories of the Bible come to life with "The Bible 30-Day Church Experience." Based on the epic TV miniseries, "The Bible," which airs at 7 p.m. five consecutive Sunday nights on the History Channel, those in attendance Sunday mornings will experience the power and drama of the Old Testament, the compassion of Jesus' life, the pain of his crucifixion, and the triumph of his resurrection.

"Each Sunday evening's episode of 'The Bible' brings Scripture to life with powerful performances and dazzling visual effects to present his-story of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation," said Kyle Ermoian, founding and senior pastor of Celebration Community Church.

During the 9 and 10:45 a.m. Celebration services and the 10:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDGE services during next five weeks, from Sunday through Easter on March 31, Pastors Ermoian and Brant Rice will present the principles of the Bible in relevant and practical ways.

Each service will feature stunning video clips from the TV miniseries produced by the Emmy Award-winning husband and wife team of Mark Burnett ("The Voice," "Survivor") and Roma Downey ("Touched By an Angel"). The TV miniseries can be viewed at home or through exclusive licensing on the big screens at Celebration Community Church.

"At Celebration, we are excited to be able to invite everyone in northwest Kansas to attend this unique series, and we hope many will come see the Bible in a whole new way," Ermoian said.

The 30-day church experience will conclude at 9 and 10:45 a.m. Easter Sunday, March 31, at Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center with an all-are-welcome, community-wide Easter celebration.

"All of us at C3 want to share the good news of Easter with all who do not have a church home through inspiring music, dramatic videos and powerful messages of love and hope found in a relationship with the risen Savior," Ermoian said.
