Donkey Walk on Palm Sunday

Dear Families,
Come join us for our Palm Sunday Walk with friends from Central United Methodist Church and Trinity Episcopal Church.

We will gather in Room 106 in the children's hall at 9:45 to get our Palms. Then we will walk across the street to follow the donkey to Prichard Park. We will have a brief service in the park before walking back to church. We return to room 106 to receive instructions about the palm procession into worship during the 11: a.m. service.

If you aren't able to come to the Donkey Walk, come to Room 106 at 10:45 to receive palms and instructions for the palm procession into worship during the 11 a.m. service.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday,
Kathryn

Holy Week & Easter Sunday

March 29 Maundy Thursday
On Holy Thursday, Jesus gathered with his friends at table to share a meal that became communion. At that table, they learned to love one another as Jesus loved them. Come and share a Holy Feast at 5:30 p.m. this Maundy Thursday in the Gardner Fellowship Hall, with great food, laughter, conversation, scripture, and Holy Communion around tables.   

March 30 Good Friday
Join us for a moving service of reflection around the cross which will include a dramatic reading of the passion story from the Gospel of John as well as portions of Johann Sebastian Bach's "St. John Passion" sung by chamber choir and accompanied by chamber orchestra. Friday, March 30th at 7:00 pm.

April 1  Easter Sunday
Special Offering: One Great Hour of Sharing at both worship services
A gift to One Great Hour of Sharing enables the church to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and oppressed.  The hundreds of millions of dollars Presbyterians have given over the last half century have  enabled a powerful witness to the love of the One who came that all might have life more abundantly. 

8:45 a.m. Worship in the Sanctuary
9:45 a.m. Potluck Brunch in the Fellowship Hall:  All are invited to bring a potluck dish to share. Beverages will be provided.  Easter Craft activities for children, childcare available also.
