Easter and Holy Week
 
We are an Easter people.  The mystery of the resurrection, the ultimate triumph of love over death, has been at the heart of our faith for two thousand years.  In 2023, we will celebrate Holy Week and Easter together with opportunities to worship online and in-person.
 
Looking for information about Easter Egg hunts, Lenten Bible Studies, or other events leading up to Holy Week? You can find them on our Lent Page!
We need your help! Easter Sunday is going to be a big day, and it won’t happen without volunteers. From holding open doors to following up with first-time visitors, there is so much that needs to be done. Please fill out our Easter Volunteer Form!
