Easter Sunday

Posted on: April 12th, 2020 by Nate No Comments

Hey Family!

I am so looking forward to our Easter time together (socially distant, of course)!  We plan to begin Easter Communion at 10:00am
(note change from last week), so plan to arrive at the parking lot (and stay in your cars) by 5 minutes till or earlier if you will need more time to get set up.   I have a special surprise in store for you so you won’t want to be late.  And if you log onto the countdown (up to 15 minutes before 10:00, I believe) to the communion time, you can even chat with everyone else who is there as you wait.  If you can’t make it to the parking lot for any reason, we will miss seeing you but feel free to join us from your living room and prepare whatever elements you have available to commune with us.

Below is the link to the communion devotional and a suggested order of service for your micro-house-church afterwards.  Also below are announcements and sermon notes.  Happy Easter!!

Communion 10am in the church parking lot “drive-in” style. Stay in your cars please! Click HERE to log in to the communion message.

Virtual Lobby – We will open a Zoom Meeting for people to talk with one another after service 11:30-12:30. Feel free to jump in/out of the room at your leisure to have the opportunity to talk/process/catch up/ask questions/celebrate/etc. This idea is to try to fill the gap left from not being able to hang out and talk after service like so many enjoy doing. Let’s share this time with one another!
