Needed: Easter Egg Hunt Coordinator
We’re in need of someone to coordinate the Easter Egg Hunt normally held the day before Easter at the old stone church at 11:00 am. This job takes 2-3 hours to complete, including time on the day of the hunt. Coordinator needs to seek volunteers who are willing to donate candy, stuff plastic eggs, and/or hide eggs. The Easter egg hunt is a community-wide event that attracts about 100 people. If you are willing to coordinate this event please contact Annie. Thank you.
Choir Cantata During Worship Sunday, April 6, 10:30am
The choir will present a Lenten cantata during worship on April 6. The cantata, entitled "In My Place: Remembering Christ's Sacrifice of Love," reminds us that Christ bore the sins of all human beings. Words of scripture and the words that might have been spoken by Judas, Peter, and others will be read. Some familiar Lenten hymns and beautiful newer songs will be presented during the cantata. Cathy Woelbling-Paul, who was part of the woodwind quartet during Advent, will add a special dimension to the music, accompanying on the oboe. Please join us for this service of Word, music, and Communion.
Palm Sunday, April 13, 10:30am
Our festive Palm Sunday worship on April 13th will include the procession of palms. We will enjoy the talents of Christine Sasse, violinist, as she plays on selected hymns, the choir's anthem, and provides special offertory and postlude music. Chris is an instructor in the music department at Washington University.
Maundy Thursday, April 17, 7:00pm
The Worship Arts Committee invites you to take part in what is known as an “agape meal.” Loosely based on the Jewish Seder meal, this service will begin with a simple dinner around tables in the Gathering Space. Towards the end of the meal, we’ll “move” into a worship service that focuses on Jesus’ final meal with the disciples and a reading of the Passion story. The choir will also be joining us, singing an anthem entitled "Thy Will Be Done." Sign-ups are needed, so please let us know you are coming by e-mailing Marie or signing up in the Gathering Space. This is for all ages! (If time, I’ll put together a web form.)
Easter Sunday, April 20, 10:30am
Invite your friends and families to worship with us at 10:30 Easter morning! As a special musical offering, we are excited to welcome a brass quartet to participate in this joyous and triumphant service.
