Holy Week + EASTER
Holy Week and Easter Events
Every telling of the Easter story in scripture begins with people walking from a week marked by suffering and death into a light of a new day. We invite you to spiritually walk with Jesus and his followers through his final days and into the beauty of God's rebuke of death. Below are the ways you can join us this Holy Week.

Building our Cross of Flowers
Every typical year, we bring our flowers to the cross on Easter, as a sign of unlimited life and love springing forth from the love and sacrifice of Christ. This year, we invite you to come to the church anytime on Saturday to add your flowers to the cross. It will be available to you at the beginning of the sidewalk that leads from the main parking lot to the courtyard.
Easter Sunday, April 4th
Lawn Chair Easter Service, 9:00 am
Online Easter Worship Gathering, 10:30 am
Join us for a short, outdoor, Easter celebration! We will have an in-person Easter worship service on south lawn of the church, between the main parking lot and the small play ground. Space is limited, so we are asking people to RSVP. The link to RSVP will become available, here, on Sunday March 21st, after the staff reaches out to members who may not have the ability to RSVP online. We ask all attenders to wear a mask, keep distance, and bring your own chair (and perhaps umbrella!). You'll receive more information when the online RSVP form comes available. We are excited for Easter to begin our first steps of future in-person gatherings.
Our 10:30 am Online Gathering will continue! Join us on Easter for a special Online Gathering and celebration of God's unlimited love and life in Jesus Christ. Through your generosity and support, we have the capabilities to offer online worship services continually, even as we add in-person experiences down the road.
May God bless you in this season, and that you feel the thrill of Mary and the other disciples as they walked from a week of suffering into a new Day with God.
