April 9 -- Palm Sunday -- the day when we remember how Jesus began the last week of his life by riding into Jerusalem at the head of a big procession, with all the bystanders waving palm branches in celebration. Our worship service begins in the church parlours, and we'll parade into the Sanctuary with own pomp and palms.
April 13 -- Maundy Thursday -- "Maundy" comes from the Latin word mandatum (commandment). This is the night when Jesus held his Last Supper with the disciples, and gave them the commandment to "love one another." We'll gather for a light meal at 6:30 pm, and then move into the Sanctuary for a quiet service of candles, readings, music and silence to remember all the events of that fateful night.
April 14 - Good Friday -- It always seems strange to call the anniversary of Jesus' execution "good!" Our worship service on that day will be at 11:00 am -- a chance to remember all the events of that terrible day, and the meaning that Christians have made from that ever since.
April 16 -- Easter Sunday -- this is the day we pull out all the stops for a bang-up celebration of new life. Join us for communion, "flowering the cross," stirring music and lots of fun. Following worship, the Congregational Life Committee invites you to join us for a pot-luck luncheon in the Friendship Hall downstairs. All welcome!
Earth Day April 22 -- we believe that taking care of God's world is a part of what it means to be Christian. We encourage you to find ways to mark Earth Day with your friends and family on Saturday, April 22. We'll include some observation of this in worship on Sunday April 23.
