As we continue to move through the remembrances of events of the past we are in the midst of the pits – it being about 3:00 on Friday afternoon.
Easter Sunrise Service at 6:45 at Comfort Hill Farm
Pancake Breakfast at 7:00 in the Fellowship Hall
Celebrating Easter in worship at 9:30.
The text for this Sunday is: Mark 16:1-8 and the message will be “The Next Chapter.”
We will be decorating the cross again this year and we will be celebrating Communion and I expect there may be an Easter surprise or two.
I hope to see you
God Bless You
Blessings to you all,
This coming Sunday begins the intense journey from Palms to Passion and finally to Easter. We will focus on Palms and Passion this coming Sunday with the first part of the service with palms followed by a dramatic reading of the Passion (will those who are reading please be at church at 9:00). The scripture for the Palm portion is: Mark 11:1-11 while Matthew 26-27 will be our focus during the readings. There will be an activity time for the younger children if the parents wish to have them downstairs rather than up (pre-k and k). We are encouraging the older children to stay upstairs during the Passion, which is intense but such a major part of the story of Jesus and the story of our faith tradition and our faith personally. Of course if parents would prefer that their children be downstairs – that will work as well.
The Maundy Thursday service will be held in the sanctuary beginning at 7:00 on April 2nd – followed by the Watch Night Vigil.
The Ecumenical Good Friday Service will be held at 4:00 pm at the Vergennes Methodist Church.
An Easter Egg Party and Hunt will be from 9:30 – 11:00 am on Saturday the 4th
Easter Sunrise service – 6:45 at Comfort Hill Farm
Easter Breakfast at 7:00
Easter Celebration 9:30
This would be a good time to invite a friend or two to share in this part of the faith journey.
It will be a blessing to see you on Sunday
