April 20, 2014 Announcements

Maundy Thursday Service:   April 17th, 7:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary.
We will have a fellowship/last supper type of worship service, with readings surrounding the last night of Jesus before his crucifixion.  Various food items will be available as part of the service and fellowship time (nut-free only).   After our time together we will cover the cross and shut off the lights in the sanctuary, and leave in silence.

Good Friday Prayer Time:  April 18th, 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary.
Anyone who wishes to come by the church for private prayer is welcome during this time period (covering the traditional time of day that Jesus died on the cross).

Easter Flowers and Snacks to Church
Please bring your Easter plants and flowers to church on Sunday, April 20th. Easter lilies, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils or other spring flowers would all be welcome decorations for our sanctuary as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection.

If you would like to bring a sweet or savory snack to supplement our coffee hour spread for Easter Sunday, we would love to have you share them with us.  Due to serious allergies, we have to ask for NO NUTS in your treats.  Unless it needs to be refrigerated, the dish can be left in the Nave Gallery.

Sermon:    “It’s Better to be Seen than to be Viewed”

Scripture:  John 20:1-18; Colossians 3:1-4 

In the passage from John this week, we have 3 disciples of Christ doing a lot of running, and then peering into an empty tomb on that first Easter morning.  As they peered into the darkness of the tomb, what did they see?  What did they discover about themselves and their lives after an encounter with the Risen Christ?
Join us for worship and the celebration of Easter on Sunday, April 20th at 10:30 a.m., and for coffee and fellowship after the service.
