Easter and Holy Week 2024

No matter who you are, where you’re from or where you are in life, you are welcome to celebrate Easter with us. Wilshire is an inclusive, progressive community of faith in northeast Dallas offering two worship services Easter morning — a sunrise service at White Rock Lake and 11 a.m. worship in our Sanctuary. Whether you come to church twice a week or twice a year, you’re loved just the same.

Easter Sunday

Sunrise Service

March 31 | 6:45 a.m. | T. & P. Hill at White Rock Lake
Come as you are and bring the whole family as we greet the Easter sunrise with a worship service at White Rock Lake’s T. & P. Hill (map). Offered in partnership with Northway Christian Church.

Worship at Wilshire

March 31 | 11 a.m. | Sanctuary
Join us at 11 a.m. for a glorious hour of worship. Our Sanctuary shutters — closed during the season of Lent — will be opened as we celebrate the risen Christ through word and song. Sunday School for all ages is offered at 9:45 a.m.

Flowering Cross

Stop by Easter morning to place a flower into the mesh-wrapped wooden cross outside the Wilshire Sanctuary. Bring your own fresh-cut flowers or take one from a limited supply provided by the church. A favorite photo opportunity!



Holy Week

Maundy Thursday Service

March 28 | 7:30 p.m. | Sanctuary
Always one of the year’s most moving worship experiences, our Maundy Thursday service commemorates the Last Supper with readings and celebration of the Lord’s Supper, then carries through to the crucifixion, ending in darkened silence.

Road to Resurrection: Family Lenten Experience

Palm Sunday, March 24 | 9–11 a.m. | Community Hall
Join us in traveling the path of Jesus during his last week on earth in this hour-long multigenerational Easter event geared for all ages. We’ll create and wave palm branches, taste the Passover meal, visit the Garden of Gethsemane and join in other engaging experiences by visiting five sequential stations, rotating every 10 minutes in small groups. The event is open to everyone from 9 to 9:30 a.m. with one group starting at 9 and another group at 9:15. Please sign up for a time here. Older preschoolers and kindergarten through 6th grade Sunday School classes will participate during Sunday School from 9:30 to 11 a.m. See event page.
