Former President Donald Trump and first lady Melania were warmly welcomed and received heartfelt standing ovations at Christ Fellowship Church in Palm Beach Gardens and at Mar-a-Lago on Easter Sunday.
The couple was in the front row at the Florida church for its morning service when cheers and applause broke out as they were introduced. Senior Pastor Todd Mullins led the crowded service in prayer and several congregates videoed the celebration.
Mullins introduced the Trumps to the congregation who made it clear they love them and were thrilled to have them at the service: “It’s also our privilege, my privilege today to welcome the President (and), Mrs. Trump, too.”
The former First Couple turned to say hello to the crowd and Melania waved to them. Following the service, the Trumps spoke with Mullins as the band played on.

“We always welcome everyone to join us at Christ Fellowship in celebrating the resurrection of Jesus,” Mullins stated.
“This year, perhaps more than ever, we hope that Jesus’ message of hope and salvation spreads widely and brings joy to all who hear it,” the pastor declared.
The church location is very large. It is a 22,500 square-foot building that holds approximately 1,500 people.
Not all of the congregants wore masks or social distanced during the service and everyone seemed just fine with that. The large crowd was thrilled that the Trumps were in attendance and everyone comingled freely on the joyous occasion.
Mullins’ father, Tom Mullins, originally founded the church in 1983, holding services in his living room. It then moved to a school cafeteria. Christ Fellowship Church is now one of the 25 largest churches in the nation with about 30,000 congregants attending services across Florida weekly. A former football coach, the senior Mullins was tapped to serve on Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board.
After the service, the Trumps returned to Mar-a-Lago for an Easter celebration with their grandchildren. In contrast to the Biden White House, there were dozens of children at the Easter egg hunt.
Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberley Guilfoyle, along with Eric and Lara Trump, were at the celebration. The grandchildren appeared to have a wonderful time.
“I’m not sure they’re working all that hard for it but it’s a good tradition nonetheless and they had fun,” mused Donald Trump Jr.
“Easter with grandpa. Hope you all had a great one,” he said on Instagram.

“Mr. President!” one supporter shouted at Mar-a-Lago during dinner festivities as the club members came to their feet to give the couple and their son Barron another standing ovation.

The former president even had a message for those who constantly try to tear him down: “Happy Easter to ALL, including the Radical Left CRAZIES who rigged our Presidential Election, and want to destroy our country!” Trump defiantly wrote in a statement to the Save America PAC. It is apparent that Trump is not done fighting for America in the political arena.
Trump called for a boycott of companies on Saturday that are aggressively supporting “woke cancel culture.” Dozens of large corporations in Georgia and in other states came out against voter integrity laws. They include companies such as Coca-Cola, Merck, Major League Baseball, UPS, Home Depot, Citigroup, American Airlines, Apple, Microsoft, and Delta Airlines.
“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them. Now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections. It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!” Trump proclaimed.
