Jan. 21, 2016 (Los Angeles) – Easter is the biggest Sunday of the year. More than baskets and bunnies, Easter offers a glimpse of glory. That’s why churches celebrate big—but it’s not easy.

For many church communicators, Easter is a marathon that starts as soon as Christmas is over and ends with exhaustion.

The Center for Church Communication (CFCC) and its flagship blog, Church Marketing Sucks, announce the launch of a new book to help churches with Easter. Super Sunday: Planning Easter for Your Church offers practical ideas and real-world examples to help churches plan, promote and survive Easter.

“Easter offers us the greatest story ever told,” says CFCC Executive Director Chuck Scoggins. “But all the preparation can drain pastors, staff and volunteers. We wanted to offer a resource to help them celebrate without feeling overwhelmed.”

With more than a dozen chapters addressing how to start planning earlier, engaging with the themes of Lent, bringing guests back after Easter and more, plus real Easter stories from churches, this is practical backup for church communicators.

With a foreword by church communication expert Kelvin Co, Super Sunday will be released in print and digital formats on Jan. 25. Kelvin Co will join contributors Kelley Hartnett and Kevin D. Hendricks for a live Google Hangout on Jan. 25 at 2 p.m. ET to talk about the book and preparing for Easter. Visit for more on Super Sunday.

Founded in 2004, the Center for Church Communication is a firebrand of church communicators, sparking churches to communicate the gospel clearly, effectively and without compromise. The organization’s most visible project is Church Marketing Sucks, the church communications blog with coverage in the Wall Street Journal, Advertising Age, How Magazine, The Boston Herald and more. CFCC has previously published the highly successful Unwelcome: 50 Ways Churches Drive Away First-Time Visitors and  Outspoken: Conversations on Church Communication.
