Easter Sunday Worship March 31st, 2024

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  There are old hymns whose title lines many of you can probably sing.  One such hymn begins, “I love to tell the story,” and its proclamation is especially true this weekend.  We are a people encouraged, emboldened, and invigorated by a story we have been telling for over 2,000 years.  Whether at 6:00 as the sun becomes visible at the foot of the mountain or at 10:00 as many don their finest clothing (and many do not, just as happily!), on Easter morning we celebrate good news!  God, who made and loves us, has given us new hope that continues to this day.  The most frightening reality that comes with life has been overcome.  Death need trouble us no more, because of God’s saving grace, known to us through Jesus Christ.  Come celebrate his resurrection–and ours!

The 10:00 service will provide the joy of musical clamor from Clair Maxwell on the organ, our chimes choir, trumpet, our musical consort, and our choir.  The quieter service at 6:00 a.m. at the foot of Blue Hill Mountain will be accompanied by birdsong and the brilliance of an Easter sunrise.  Join us in our contemplation and our celebration!

Blessings and peace, Lisa

Worship at Home Materials:  We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday. Coffee & tea are available after the church service. Masks are suggested in the sanctuary and required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.

Below you will find materials to accompany this week’s Sunday Morning Worship via Zoom.  An order of service with scripture readings, to accompany the service, are available by clicking the following links.
