Easter Sunday

It may have been cold outside, but it was warm in our church. Thanks to everyone who made our Holy Week services so meaningful and our Easter service so joyful.
One of my friends and his family came for the first time and remarked that we all seemed so happy and friendly to all.

Holy Week Schedule

Easter morning is far more meaningful if you go through Holy Week with Jesus and his disciples. Get the whole story through these CPC services:

Maundy Thursday -- 4:00 pm (communion & foot washing)
Good Friday -- 7:30 pm (a reading of the Passion)

Then celebrate Resurrection Day:

Sunrise Service -- 7:30 am on the Valley Stream Village Green (in partnership with V.S. Presbyterian Church)
Easter Morning Celebration -- 9:45 am (communion, special music, rejoicing, and more)

For the Children:

Easter Egg Hunt -- After worship (OK, eggs and rabbits hearken back to the pagan fertility holiday Easter superseded, but it's fun!); Kids, please restrict your hunting to the area assigned to your age group. Older kids, leave the easy eggs for the little ones.

Holy Week Challenge

Read Matthew chapters 21:12 - 26:16. Some of Jesus' most challenging and provocative teaching was done during the four days between his entry into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday) and his arrest (Maundy Thursday). Take a read and post your thoughts by clicking on the comment link below.
