Holy Week  Schedule

Stations of the Cross
First Presbyterian will join several other churches for a time of worship and contemplation as we walk together the "Stations of the Cross."  Walking through the Logan Community, we will stop periodically to hear the story of Good Friday and join in prayer. The "mobile" service begins at 3:30 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church (the corner of Chestnut and Tournament) and will end around 5:30 p.m.
Sunrise Service , Memorial Garden, 7:00 a.m.
Peter, Lynne, and Rachel will lead this service. Please bring a folding chair or blanket as none will be provided.  After the service, you are invited to tour the garden and enjoy coffee in the Jones Yorke Room. In case of rain, the service will be held in the sanctuary.
Flowered Cross Service
Sanctuary, 10:00 a.m.
We will celebrate the wonder and beauty of the resurrection in this service for families and children.  Remember to bring your flowers to place on the Flowered Cross. Families are reminded to bring their One Great Hour of Sharing fish boxes. There will be no Sunday School classes or nurseries during this service.
Easter Worship Services 
8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
At both services, members of the Sanctuary Choir and guest instrumentalists will supplement the uplifting message of the resurrection with festive anthems like "And I Saw a New Heaven," "Oh, Love That Will Not Let Me Go," and the triumphant "Hallelujah" from Messiah by Handel that the congregation will be invited to sing.  Communion will be served in the pews with trays.  A nursery for infants and children up to age 4 will be provided during both services.
