We have one more special prayer service set aside to pray for our church this Wednesday, April 13th. And we are setting aside Wednesday, April 13th as a day of fasting and prayer for our church. All are encouraged to pray. Those not hindered by health concerns are also encouraged to fast from after your evening meal on Tuesday, April 12th to your evening meal on Wednesday, April 13th. Our desire is to seek God’s face and know His will for our church.
A Tenebrae Service will be held on Good Friday at 8:00 pm in the church sanctuary. Tenebrae is a Latin word meaning “darkness.” A Tenebrae Service is also called “A Service of Shadows.” It is a simple, powerful service. The sanctuary will be lit mainly by candles. We will sing songs and read Scriptures that point to the crucifixion of Christ. After each Scripture reading, a candle will be extinguished. Communion will also be observed.
Memorial Easter lilies may be brought in this week any day but Tuesday.
On Easter Sunday we will have a Sunrise Service at 6:30 AM, followed by a breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. Sunday School will be at 9:00 AM, followed by our Easter Worship Service at 10:00 AM. There will be no evening service in order to allow more time for families to gather for Easter.
