Holy Week is an important week within the Christian year.  So the churches in town find themselves holding a few extra events to try and remember and be shaped by what God did in this week of Jewish Feasting and remembering the Exodus from Egypt.  Today is Good Friday!  It is only good because of hindsight and remembering that “God works out all things for the good of those who love him.”  On this day that Jesus died, the Catholic and Presbyterian Churches both offer services to remember how Jesus laid down his life, not struggling, but offering it willingly for our sake.  If you would like to remember with us, join us at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 25th at either location.

Saturday is normally a quiet day during Holy Week.  But if you have children, you forgot what a quiet day was.  But the Sunday School teachers would like to offer you a quiet two hours, as we will be holding an Easter Event on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon for any children two and up.  We will be making Resurrection Rolls and remembering the events of Easter Morning with searches for signs of what God has done.

Sunday starts early for every church, as we gather at Pullen Pond at 7:30 a.m. for a Community Sunrise Service.  By 8:15, we are at the Easter Breakfast, getting warm with pancakes, eggs, and coffee.  This is held at the Fellowship Hall of the Presbyterian Church.  The Catholic Church holds a service at 10 a.m., while the others start at 11 a.m.  We hope you can join us for some or all of these events.  Remember, “He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!”
