A Note From Pastor Tom
With all of the cultural hubbub around Christmas, it often feels like a losing battle to remind people of the real “reason for the season.” Community events can get lost in the endless calendar of holiday happenings. Despite all the bunnies and Cadbury eggs, Easter has not become as culturally hijacked as Christmas; it therefore, presents a wide-open opportunity to open our doors and show our community the love of Jesus.
Sure, people tend to flock to churches on Easter like kids to a basket of marshmallow Peeps, but it takes more than one worship service to truly demonstrate (and invite people to participate in) the message and mission of Jesus Christ. So we need to make sure we are hospitable, greeting folks, inviting them to participate, and extending an invitation to come back again. As we start into April, Holy Week is upon us.
Palm Sunday is Sunday, April 2. Join us as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry and wave our palms. Additionally, we will be taking in new members to the church.
Maundy Thursday Our Maundy Thursday service will begin with a potluck supper at 6 p.m. This will be followed by a short service in the fellowship hall. Bring a dish to share and enjoy some fellowship as we remember Christ’s Last Supper.
Good Friday Our Good Friday service will be an ecumenical (shared) service at the Presbyterian Church at 7 p.m. Pastor Tom will be bringing the sermon.
Rise and Shine! Our Sunrise service will be at 7 a.m. in the park. This service is a great way to begin your Easter, celebrating the risen Savior and enjoying the beauty of the sunrise. Following the service, there will be coffee and doughnuts
Easter Worship, 10:30 a.m. The season is the perfect time to invite someone to join us as we celebrate the Risen Lord! Make sure that you take a few minutes to stop and prayerfully consider how you can share the love of God with those around you in the midst of this blessed season.
Combined Service April 30th will be the first of our Combined Service and potlucks for the year. The service will begin at 10 a.m. with lunch to follow. This is a great opportunity for the folks from first and second service to get to know one another.
Mother’s Day May 14th is Mother’s Day. Come help us celebrate all of our mothers!
Graduation Sunday On May 21, we will be recognizing our 2023 graduates in the service. If you have a graduate or know of one we need to add to our list, please contact the office so we don’t miss anyone.
Pentecost/Memorial Day May 28 is both Pentecost and Memorial Day Sunday. Wear your red and join us as we celebrate the birthday of the Church and remember those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. On May 29, we will be hosting the Memorial Day pancake breakfast, which will be followed by the Richmond Memorial Day Parade.
