We have arrived at the end of Holy Week! Sunday is the best day of the year- Easter! We get to come together as a community and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord! Alleluia indeed!

Last week I was talking to a member who remarked that they sometimes stay home on Easter to make room for visitors. I replied that, whereas that was a generous posture to take, it is good for all of us to be in worship together on Easter. We hope that you will all come and worship the risen king. Lent is a long season as we have been journeying towards the cross. We have studied, prayed, and served the Lord during this time and on Sunday we will get to celebrate with joy! Our regular worship service times and locations will remain, and we will join with the other downtown churches at 7AM at St Peters Church (not in the cemetery – due to rain). I look forward to worshipping with you!

A word about visitors historically, Easter Sunday we will likely have a lot of visitors in worship. As with all our visitors every Sunday, please make sure to make them feel welcome, share your seats with them, and if they seem lost ask them if they need help. Our hospitality is one way we live out our faith in the risen Lord. I have no doubt they will feel welcome.

See you Sunday!

Pastor Carrie
