Since Easter Sunday arrives early next month, on April 4th, we wanted you to have an idea of the current plans for this important morning in our worship life. Our hope is to have three early services, that will each be about thirty minutes long … at 6:30 a.m. (Sunrise Service) at the church cemetery, and two parking lot services at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. These services will offer the singing of a few Easter hymns (in your car), some brief liturgy, a homily, and Holy Communion using our fellowship cups. If you came to our Christmas Eve parking lot services, these will have a similar format. Sign-up Genius sites will be created later this month to take reservations for these services. Watch our news feeds for news on when those sign-up sites will be available. We will also offer a 10:45 a.m. Live Stream worship service with Easter Hymns, a sermon, liturgy and special music for our Easter celebration. We look forward to many of you joining us from your homes for this festive Easter service.
