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!
Easter Egg Hunt, April 19, 11am-1pm
Kids 5th grade & younger, invite your friends! The Old Des Peres Church (a.k.a. the Old Meeting House) is on Geyer Road, about 1/2 mile south of Clayton Road. Parking is available along side streets near the church. Bring your Easter basket! Would you consider volunteering to help? See the "Volunteers Needed" blog to sign up.
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.
Again this year, we will decorate the Sanctuary with a variety of blooming flowers (6” pots). Cost per plant will be $10. See the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space to place your order, or sign-up on the church website. Please designate if the flowers are being given in honor of or memory of loved ones. Make checks payable to Faith Des Peres and note that the funds are for Easter Flowers. Thank you.
Janet Boyer Music Fund
Janet Boyer was a longtime member of Faith Des Peres, an accomplished musician, and founder of Music Folk in Webster Groves. A fund established in her memory is dedicated to providing monetary resources above and beyond the normal budget for music at Faith Des Peres. For examples, the fund paid for our electric keyboard which we use weekly in rehearsals and in services, and it will help pay for the guest musicians whose talents we enjoy during Lent and Easter. If you would like to contribute, please make your check payable to Faith Des Peres and note "Janet Boyer Fund," or donate online. Thank you to all our generous donors for your support of the music ministry at Faith Des Peres.
