Sunday on Fox News, Franklin Graham will deliver a special Easter message from New York City, the national center of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Graham will share a few short stories from the Bible of people who had lost hope, were afraid and felt helpless—and the difference that Jesus made in their lives.
Watch Easter Message
Sunday at 10 a.m. ET, Franklin Graham and Michael W. Smith join together for a 30-minute message broadcast from New York’s Central Park. Watch on Fox News.
“We’re celebrating Easter. We celebrate the day that Jesus Christ came up out of the grave,” Franklin Graham said. “He’s alive, and He’ll come into each and every heart that is willing to trust Him by faith.”
Beginning at 10 a.m. ET, the 30-minute message will feature music from Michael W. Smith. Both Graham and Smith, who have come together on numerous occasions to share the Gospel at Franklin Graham Festivals, visited NYC earlier this week.
They stopped at an emergency field hospital in Central Park where health care professionals working with Samaritan’s Purse and chaplains from the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team are serving residents diagnosed with the coronavirus.
The field hospital—an assembly of white tents with beds for up to 68 patients—is taking overflow from Mt. Sinai Hospital across the street.
Graham, along with his daughter Cissie Graham Lynch, took time to encourage and pray with medical staff.
“Right now we have patients in this hospital, and some are struggling for every breath that they take,” Franklin Graham said.
It was 29 years ago that Franklin Graham’s father, Billy Graham, led an enormous Crusade in Central Park to bring hope to anyone within earshot. Now, Franklin Graham wants to do the same for anyone who may tune in to the Easter special on Sunday—at a time when the whole world has been shaken by the immeasurable effects of a pandemic.
“Nobody expected this storm, but it has gripped the entire world, and there are people that have lost absolutely all hope,” Graham said during his time in the heart of New York.
“Jesus Christ is the hope that the world is looking for.”
If you’re unable to attend regular Easter services, join this special broadcast starting at 10 a.m. ET on Fox News. You may even come together virtually with family, friends and neighbors.
