All Night Easter Vigil at Oaks of Righteousness, April 20
A vigil is when people stay awake for a specific cause or reason when they would normally be asleep.
We hold a vigil the night before Easter Sunday, to prepare ourselves to celebrate Jesus being raised from the dead.
Starting at 8:00pm on 4/20, we will have a short Bible reading followed by a praise song. This lasts about 5 minutes in total.
Afterwards, different activities and stations are set up to help you prepare for Easter. It is more of a quiet time, but we will have a space to socialize with people.
We repeat this cycle each hour until the sunrise service at 7:00am on 4/21, Easter Sunday! Anyone is welcome to join us for as much or as little of the night as you like.
Coffee and snacks will be provided.
You can RSVP
at Oaks website so we know how much food to supply.
Jubilate Singers, April 28
The Jubilate Singers is a dedicated group of about 100 people from churches in the Capital Region and as far away as Rome, Saratoga Springs, and Cairo, New York. In 2002, we presented our first program, Handel’s Messiah. Subsequent performances have included choral masterpieces like Bach’s “St. John Passion,” Haydn’s “Seven Last Words,” Brahms’ “Requiem”, and Rutter’s, “Feel the Spirit,”
Accompanied by a professional orchestra, the Jubilate Singers will present their eighteenth annual program at Bethlehem Lutheran Church 85 Elm Ave., Delmar, one week after Easter on Sunday, April 28, 2019. Their message - Sing for Joy - extends the joy of Easter with selections from Messiah to remind us of the empty tomb of Jesus. Other pieces project the joyful ways Christians share that Good News! Tickets are available at Bethlehem Lutheran Church: Adults $20, Seniors and Students $15, children 12 and under are free. Patrons are always welcome. For more information call 518-439-4328.
