Easter Week Services

Easter Weekend
There are many things to do on a long weekend, especially around Easter. Included here are many of the opportunities you will have to engage with the wonder of the Passion weekend. If you would like to volunteer to help out in some way please let us know in the office.

Tenebrae Service
Tenebrae, or “Service of Shadows” is one of the oldest traditions of the Christian church for the commemoration of the passion and death of Christ. As the Passion story unfolds through the readings and music, the darkness increases, until with the death of Jesus only one light is left burning. This is not necessarily a cheerful service, as it is an entering into the story of our Lord Christ on the night he was betrayed. It helps us appreciate more gloriously the explosion of light that is Easter. This service will take place Thursday evening at 7:00pm. It is a very participatory event and we are in need of about nine readers. Please contact Pastor Kevin if you are able to help out.

Good Friday Service
We will be hosting a joint service with Knox Presbyterian Church at 11am. This year Dr. Ron Foubister will be bringing the message.

Easter Sunrise Service
We will be having our Easter Sunrise Service again this year; same location as last year (3181 49th St S).  The service is approximately 30 minutes long and there will be hot chocolate provided; the service will begin at 7:30am.  Questions?  Please give Laird a call - thanks.

Resurrection Celebration Service
We will of course be rejoicing with great hallelujahs on Easter morning during our regular timed service. (10:30 in case you were wondering)
