Easter Celebration

Everyone, including the worship committee, is looking forward to celebrating Easter. The season of Lent which leads up to Easter is beginning this year on Wednesday, March 2, also known as Ash Wednesday. We will have the Ash Wednesday service at 7PM and Rev. John Germaine will be officiating. Lent is a somber season of reflection that leads up to Good Friday and the joyous celebration of Christ’s resurrection on Easter.

This year Good Friday will be on April 15 and Easter will be celebrated on April 17. Have you ever wondered why Easter is not on the same date every year? It is called the “moveable feast” and is always on the first Sunday after the first full moon that follows the spring equinox.

We are planning two services this Easter: a sunrise service at 7AM in the Chapel in the Woods, and a second service in the sanctuary at 10AM. In between the two services we are planning to have breakfast so be on the lookout for a sign-up sheet to help with breakfast. We hope to have personal fellowship in these two services and more participation in person as we enter the post Covid transition to normalcy. Easter is a joyous holiday and celebration that is at the heart of our faith and we hope to see you on that special Sunday.
