 Worship Highlights for APRIL

April 2, 5th Sunday of Lent:  Can these dry bones live?  Will God breathe life into us again?  This week’s worship includes Ezekiel 37:1-14, Psalm 130 and our final “Wilderness Wanderings” sharing.  We have heard some incredibly powerful, moving and inspirational stories as we have journeyed through Lent, you won’t want to miss this last installment!

April 9, Palm/Passion Sunday:  This special service begins with Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and follows the events of the week ending with his crucifixion.  We will begin our service with the Procession of the Cross through our parking lot while we wave our palms.  (Hopefully we won’t have another 8 inches of snow, like last year!)  Then we will experience the telling of Christ’s Passion from Matthew’s gospel through song and scripture.  Please join us for a beautiful and powerful entrance into Holy Week.

April 13, Maundy Thursday:  We encourage everyone to attend the community “The Living Last Supper” at First Presbyterian Church of Wasilla on Bogard Rd at 7:00.  Our very own Robert and Isaac Hicks and Caesar Marciales are playing three of the disciples at the Last Supper.  Come and hear each disciple reflect on who they are and how they are a part of that special, holy meal.

April 14, Good Friday:  This year we will be featuring our own unique, and very personal, offering of the Stations of the Cross.  The church will be open from 4:00-8:00 pm.  You are invited to come anytime during those hours to walk the Stations of the Cross.  Each Station will feature a depiction of a portion of Christ’s Passion created by a different member of our church family.  The Stations will also include the scripture and a brief message from the artist’s perspective explaining how the icon they brought represents the scripture.  (Don’t forget to bring your icons to the church by Wednesday, April 12!!)

April 15, Holy Saturday:  Our Youth will be holding an Easter Vigil by the cross throughout the night, taking turns being in silent meditation at the cross.

April 16, Easter Sunday

Easter Sunrise Service 7:30 am:  Easter Sunday begins with an Easter Sunrise service designed and led by our Youth. 

Easter Breakfast 9:00 am:  Everyone is invited to our Fellowship Hall for our famous, amazing and delicious Easter Breakfast feast coordinated by Ed Ripley and Gordon Ward and put together by the fantastic men of the church.

Children’s Easter Egg Hunt 10:00 am:  Once again our Youth will be sponsoring a Children’s Easter Egg Hunt.  Like last year, the children will collect the Easter Eggs and turn them in for a gift bag.  Older children will be separated from younger children to make it more fun for all the kids.

Easter Worship, 10:30:  Our theme for Easter morning is “What Was Seen”.  This incredible worship service will feature lots of special music, our Resurrection Cross (please bring flowers to decorate the Cross), the reception of new members, the Lord’s Supper and, of course, the proclamation of our Savior’s Resurrection!  Come and proclaim with us:  Christ is risen!  Christ is risen, indeed!!

April 23, 2nd Sunday of Easter, Holy Humor Sunday:  “To Boldly Doubt” is today’s theme as we celebrate the best joke ever:  the one God played on death Easter morning.  This morning’s service will include much laughter, Holy Interruptions and a strong possibility of joy.  Scriptures are John 20:19-31 and 1 Peter 1:3-9.

April 30, 3rd Sunday of Easter:  Today we will be looking again at the well-known story of the walk to Emmaus.  “In the Breaking” is our sermon title and scriptures are Psalm 116:1-4, 12-19 and Luke 24:13-35.
