We had such a special week last week - let's take a look back!

A Digital-Plus Holy Week

Beginning with Palm Sunday, we gathered virtually for Maundy Thursday, the Good Friday Tenebrae service, Holy Saturday Compline, and two Easter services.

The Contemporary Service was offered outside, for in-person worship, and both services were available on Facebook Live, our website, and our newest option - "parking lot worship", where folks could sit in their vehicles and listen to the service on their FM radio. We had quite a number of people take advantage of this opportunity!

This took a lot of extra time and effort on the part of our entire worship team, including David Macbeth, our Director of Music, tech team of Kyle Steele and Aaron Kapes, and our musicians. We extend our thanks to all!

Enjoy these various images from the week, contributed by J.C. Austin, David Macbeth, Phyllis Walker and Al Philpotts:
The Chancel Choir goes digital

It was a wonderful treat to hear the voices of our Chancel Choir members on Easter morning. In case you are interested to know how this comes about, David Macbeth shared these images of the video editing, and one of his home studio, where rehearsals and practice recordings take place:
Big Turnout for Easter Egg Hunt!
It was a bumper crop of young ones and their families at our Easter Egg Hunt, held last Saturday morning under a brilliant blue sky! Everyone had a good time searching out the 700+ eggs put out by the Congregational Life Committee members and friends.

Thanks to Kristen Benway, J.C. Austin and Lisa Johnston for sharing these images:
