Easter this year falls on April 17, which is coming quickly! Easter is such a fun holiday with great traditions and memories. Since having kids, Easter has been even more fun and special because of how much my kids love it. Easter baskets, the Easter bunny, dying eggs, and egg hunts all are great memories and bring the kids so much joy. We love to start our Easter mornings going to church as a family and then, of course, brunch! In L.A., there are many church options for all ages. Whether you are a part of a church, or it is your first time going, there is a variety of options nearby.

Hillsong Church L.A. is a great Christian church that has both online and in-person services at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Sunday mornings. This is a very popular church in L.A. and has great community and fellowship. Visit the website, Hillsong.com, for more information about the church and location. Renew Church LA and Oasis LA are other great churches nearby. Renew LA has services at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Sunday mornings and Oasis LA has 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. service options.
