Come and join us as we worship during Good Friday
Archive for Easter
We had a lovely service on Easter Day. If you were unable to be there we hope you enjoy it!
And what about YOU? What are YOU searching for this Easter?
LOVE? – On Ash Wednesday, we celebrated God’s greatest gift of LOVE – may you especially know what it is to be loved by a strong and very good God! Come on Easter and hear the message of that love risen from the dead! (Worship at the Quabbin Tower at 6:00 AM, and in our sanctuary at 10:00 AM.)
HEALING? – While we remember Jesus’ life and ministry to others, we have been learning to listen. We listen to scriptures about Jesus healing others; we listen to God working deep into our souls.
COMFORT? – During Holy Week, we will remember those who stood all around Jesus and walked that final road with him. Truly the crucifixion was a sorrowful time of life. And yet they found comfort in being together – on the road, hiding in a room, going to the tomb. May you find comfort in being a part of this church home.
LISTEN to God these next few weeks as we explore more ways to pray and be still before God.
LISTEN through Maundy Thursday at a meal (6:00 PM) followed by communion. Readings and music remembering the Way of the Cross (the Via Dolorosa) beginning on Thursday and carrying us through to the Crucifixion story on Good Friday (7:00 PM).
LISTEN as the birds begin to sing on Easter morning (up at the Quabbin Tower at 6:00 AM!!!) – and as we lift our voices too – in great celebration of the Risen Lord on April 1st…. perhaps the very greatest April fools ever – a man sealed in a tomb rises from the dead and walks among those left on earth around him once again! Celebrate the Resurrection at 10:00 AM on Easter morning!
What are YOU searching for? Come home to HOPE and experience the greatest news, the most powerful love, and the most amazing grace!
