Easter week is upon us and tomorrow at the 9:30 am worship service we will be waving the palm branches as we remember Jesus riding on the donkey amid much acclaim from the people. As the week progresses worship services will be held on Maundy Thursday at 7pm in remembrance of the last supper that Jesus shared with his disciples. A 7pm service on Good Friday will remind us of Jesus’ agony and death on the cross. The celebration of the resurrection will take place on Easter Sunday at 9.30am.
On Good Friday, during the hours from noon until 3pm, the church will be open for anyone who wishes to come and spend some time in the Sanctuary. Pastor Trudy will be on-site and the movie “The Passion of the Christ” will be shown during this time. Everyone is welcome to come and meditate on the events that happened so long ago.
An Easter Sunrise service will be held at 6:30am at North Congregational Church in New Hartford with a community breakfast to follow. Everyone is encouraged to join in this special event.
