Pastor Trudy's Easter Message
We swing from joyful shouts to acts of humble service to betrayal to grief to the possibility of hope. So many times this past year I have wanted to fast forward or to pretend everything was okay. Holy Week teaches that fast forwarding and pretending everything is okay betrays the fact that following Jesus takes us through all of it. Hope isn't just the empty tomb; hope is in the shouts of joy, in the face of suffering; hope is pouring out whatever you've got for another; hope is the words spoken from the cross. 

God of hope and resurrection life, we meet this week with anticipation of the joy and dread of the sadness. Show us once again how You sent Your Son to accompany us through it all. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Holy Communion
Easter Sunday
10:15, 10:30, 10:45 am
We will gather on the front lawn and at 10:15, 10:30 and 10:45 am we will sing a verse of a hymn together and greet each other. Then we will hear the words of institution together and receive communion (we will be using the individual prepackaged elements, with gluten free available). We will end with a blessing and another song. Please wear masks and practice distancing from other families. You are welcome to fellowship as you come and go. We are so excited to see many of you!
