Kanye West just took his Sunday Service to Coachella.

The 41-year-old rapper made a highly anticipated appearance Easter morning at Coachella on Sunday, with his famous family in tow. His wife, Kim Kardashian West, took to her Instagram Stories to document the occasion, showing the Kardashian/Jenner clan showing up in full force to support the rapper.  Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner were all in attendance wearing matching cream-colored slip dresses, while Kourtney Kardashian's daughter, Penelope Disick, was also seen playing with her bestie, Kim and Kanye's 5-year-old daughter, North.

West's Sunday Service featured a full band and choir, wearing matching baggy shirts and pants, some reading "holy spirit." West was seen smiling and directing people, and played the piano at one point. Some West songs the choir sang in part included "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1," "Power," "Fade" and Otis Reddig's "Try a Little Tenderness," which he and JAY-Z sampled in their song "Otis" from their joint 2011 album, Watch The Throne. West also rapped "All Falls Down" and debuted a new song called "Water."

West's close friends Teyana Taylor and Chance the Rapper also took part in the performance. Rapper DMX at one point gave a passionate sermon.

The rapper became particularly emotional after a powerful rendition of his 2004 hit "Jesus Walks."

For the past couple of months, West has been putting on an invite-only Sunday Service every week, complete with a full-on gospel choir, with his famous in-laws -- including Khloe and Kourtney -- often in attendance. Other celeb guests have included Kid Cudi -- who was also at his Coachella performance on Sunday -- as well as Katy Perry and her fiance, Orlando Bloom.

But nobody steals the show more than North, who often grabs the mic at Sunday Service to dance and sing along with some of West's biggest hits.

Earlier this month, Kim talked about the weekly gathering.

"It's honestly more like a healing experience for my husband," she told Elle. "It’s just music; there’s no sermon. It’s definitely something he believes in -- Jesus -- and there’s a Christian vibe. But there’s no preaching. It’s just a very spiritual Christian experience."

But she also stressed that all faiths were welcome.

"Absolutely! Kourtney’s best friends come all the time and they’re Muslim," she said. "All my Jewish friends came on Sunday; they loved it. Everyone that comes understands it’s just a really healing experience with an amazing choir, and amazing messages about love to start off your week."

West announced he was taking his Sunday Service to Coachella last month. In a video posted on Coachella's official Twitter account, West told his attendees, "We were out in Palm Springs and they took us to a little campground because we were thinking about a little performance in Palm Springs, just a little one. Then they had a mountain, he had a mountain waiting for us. He had a date waiting for us. Only one date that mountain would be available: Easter Sunday at Coachella. That confirmation was confirmed last night."

He later excitedly announced the news on a plane, which his wife tweeted out.

West actually previously dropped out of performing at Coachella this year due to issues with stage design, Paul Tollett, co-founder of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival told The Los Angeles Times in January. West previously headlined the festival in 2011 alongside Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire and The Strokes. 

ET recently spoke to Kim, who told us she had to coach her husband on how to film confessionals for Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Watch the video below for more:
