JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We know many of you haven't been able to attend church in person in a few weeks.

With this Sunday being Easter, News4Jax wanted to bring a special service to you.

Celebration Church will be sharing their Resurrection Sunday service with us, and it will air at 9 a.m. on Channel 4.

Celebration is a local church with a main campus in Jacksonville, and several other campuses in surrounding areas. For more information about the church, visit

This Sunday's pretaped service will feature three songs of worship, a message from Lead City Pastor Tim Timberlake and a time to celebrate communion.

The church said if you'd like to join in communion, just grab crackers and juice -- or whatever you have on hand.

The service will air from 9-10 a.m. Sunday on Channel 4, so News4Jax will not be airing This Week in Jacksonville at 9 a.m.

Timberlake joined us during Good Friday on The Morning Show to talk about what it’s been like for people of faith during this time of social distancing. (Press play below to see his interview.)

We hope you’ll join us this Sunday, and we can all feel a little closer as a community, despite having to stay apart.

As our area celebrates Easter under social distancing rules, News4Jax is partnering with Celebration Church to bring a special service you can watch at home.
