Why do We Celebrate Easter?

Why do We Celebrate Easter?

Easter is one of the most important festivals in Christianity and marks the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. The celebration has a long history spanning more than 2,000 years and is an important time for Christians all over the world. Read on to learn more about the meaning and traditions of Easter.

In recent years, BCC has invested in producing content for children, especially animated films about Bible stories. Over 50 films are already on the Bible Kids YouTube channel as well as on our app, and more are being produced. Our wish is for the Bible to become available and brought to life for the children.

Perhaps one of the most exciting stories is precisely what happened at Easter over 2,000 years ago. This is explained in a simple and illustrative way in the animated film about the Easter Gospel: Jesus died on the cross and rose again.

Long Tradition in Celebrating the Easter Holiday

For over 100 years, BCC has organized Easter conferences. Since the church began using Brunstad as a meeting place back in 1956, the Easter festival has been celebrated there. This year is no exception.

It is a festive time to be able to gather around the life-changing message Jesus brought. In addition, there are activities, meals, and fellowship in the impressive conference village at the Oslofjord Convention Center. There is room for the whole family here.

Voluntary Efforts Make Space for Young People

Things kick off on Saturday, and many voluntary hours are behind the preparations as 4,700 expectant young people get ready for the Easter camp. Young adults use the Easter holidays to help make the camp an unforgettable experience for the younger teenagers.

The holiday peaks when over 12,000 members gather for the Easter conference in the latter half of Easter week. The youngest participant is only a few weeks old, and the oldest is well over 100.

We wish the young people a camp full in content and all our readers a happy Easter!
