EASTER SUNDAY (April 21)
Sunrise Service in Memorial Garden (7 am)– “In the sure and certain hope of resurrection…” One of the prayers as a person’s ashes are interred into the ground proclaims that we do so in the sure and certain hope of resurrection. On Easter morning come and hear the echoes of that assurance as we sing and pray and hear God’s Word of the sure and certain hope of resurrection. Rev. Cameron Barr is preaching. Music: Hymns
Easter Breakfast (7 to 8:30 am)– Join us in the Assembly Hall for a wonderful breakfast provided by the Fellowship Board.

Flower Cross– We will once again have the Flower Cross by doors of the church. Drawing from centuries-old Christian tradition, we invite the congregation to cover a wooden cross with flowers on Easter Sunday. Throughout our services the cross will be transformed from a symbol of the crucifixion to a sign of new life. The cross will be set up on the portico. Please bring flowers Easter morning to help decorate it. Flowers will also be provided.
Please note: There will be NO food or Coffee Hour following the 11 am Easter service, so all can go home to their family Easter dinners and celebrations.
