The empty tomb marked a new beginning: no longer was Jesus the messenger. The disciples became bearers of Good News and freedom from the power of death. This Easter season, we celebrate God’s power for life in the world. We are called to dance our dances celebrating liberation and freedom. Dances of hope. Dances of justice. Dances of love.

Easter Egg Hunt for children following the service. (Bring a basket if you have one!)
Friday, March 30 at 7 pm Children are always welcome in our services
The “Appointment with God” that we have experienced each week in our Lent worship will be expanded for an evening of being with God, with ourselves and with each other. We start with a communion meal, remembering the last time Jesus ate with his disciples. Then we will “go to the Garden” with Jesus to pray, hear music, and be silent together. We will hear the scripture account of Good Friday and then go out into the night to wait for… the rest of the Story.
As we prepare for our 40-day journey of Lent, we “turn around” (the root meaning of the word “repent”) from the distractions of daily noise and focus our attention on listening in a deeper way. Writer Parker Palmer suggests we must listen “to what our life is telling us”–in other words, to listen to the deep wisdom God gave to us as a birthright, connecting to God’s purpose once again.
