Good Friday

Seven Last Words of the Globally Persecuted

March 29

Service at 6 p.m.

In-person in the chapel and online.

“The Seven Last Words of the Globally Persecuted” juxtaposes the traditional biblical texts of Jesus’ final words on the cross with the words of those facing oppression and violence worldwide. By pairing them together, it highlights the struggle of vulnerable people around the world who are robbed of their freedom, their humanity, and their lives. The text emphasizes that just as it appeared as if evil had triumphed over God’s will when Jesus was crucified, it often seems that way when we look at the contemporary realities of the world.

Easter Reception

10–11 a.m.

Guild Hall & Jones Commons

Come gather with fellow members and friends with fruit, egg bake, and pastries!

Easter Egg Hunt

March 31

10 a.m.

Starting in Jones Commons.

We will have 2,000 eggs hidden throughout the building (as well as outdoors, weather permitting!) filled with candy and treats, as well as special opportunities to “shop” from our prize table!

Egg seekers should meet Nina Jonson, Director of Children and Youth Ministry, in Jones Commons at 10 a.m. and bring a bag to collect their eggs. Children under 6 will be able to begin hunting at approximately 10:05 a.m., and children older than 6 will be able to start 5 minutes after the little ones begin. There is only one wave of egg hunting—late arrivers at church may not have eggs left to find!

There will be time to enjoy the Easter reception after the hunt!
