Holy Week / Easter PDF Print E-mail

Easter is too big to be captured in one Sunday. The tradition of the church is to celebrate the power and presence of the Risen Christ for seven weeks until the day of Pentecost (when the Holy Spirit was unleashed upon the Apostles). This is the season when we recount how the promise of Easter changed the church and all who were a part of that early church.

Holy Week kick starts our Easter Journey. We will have special services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. Click here for details. Our youth will be serving Easter breakfast from 8-10 AM in the Fellowship Hall. Your donations will help offset costs for our youth and their leaders to attend Shalom Confirmation Camp this summer. Children age 2 through Grade 6 will have lots of fun during Sunday school on Easter! Children attend 10Am worship with their parents, and then will be dismissed to Sunday school after Young Disciples Time.

After two years of training, those seeking baptism were to go through a 40-day wilderness experience of their own. This was a time for prayer, fasting, giving of alms, and repentance. As we enter into the season of Lent you will note some subtle and not so subtle changes in our worship. We hope you will see these as an attempt to capture the spirit of Lent.
