Community Worship Before Easter 2021

This year, we are praying in thanksgiving and for protection for upcoming celebrations of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! Last year, so many of our plans were interrupted due to COVID-19 and state mandates. This year, we are praying for amazing opportunities! Please read on and plan to join our spiritual family in celebration!

Community Events For All
We want people from all churches to unite in praise of Christ. To that end, their are two events open to everyone in our community:

Community Worship Service on March 28th, 7pm at Zion Evangelical & Reformed Church. All our community is invited to a worship service led by pastors from different congregations. Refreshments will be served following the service. Masks are provided but not required. A live stream of the worship service will be provided from each church’s website.

Community CrossWalk on April 2nd, starting at noon and beginning at St Paul Lutheran Church. All our community is invited to the CrossWalk service. No masks will be provided, please bring your own; also, social distancing is acceptable out doors. No live stream will be made available.

We hope everyone will be able to join us for these wonderful opportunities! Don’t forget – on Easter Sunday, please check with your local congregation about giving worship to the risen Christ. Questions? Please call 923 – 3152.

Zion Congregation Events
Palm Sunday, March 28
Please be sure to join us for Sunday school at 9:15, and worship at 10:30. Our children’s program will lead us in waving the palm branches for the Procession, and we will hear a profession of faith from one of our catechism students. A Confirmation coffee/cake reception will be held directly after the service. Don’t forget about the community service at 7pm that night!

Maundy Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm
Our congregation is invited to worship and Holy Communion in celebration of Jesus’ Last Supper with the disciples, where He gave us “the new commandment” (maundatum novumMaundy, in John 13:34) and instituted the Lord’s Supper.

Good Friday, April 3rd
Please note the Community CrossWalk at noon. Any other events are TBD.

Resurrection Sunday
A youth SonRise service will be held at 8am, followed by a light breakfast served in the Fellowship Hall. At 10 am, our worship service with Holy Communion begins.

Challenge: Who could you invite to one of the above events? How is Jesus calling you to repentance and faith this Easter? Where is one area of your life that you want to see greater submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ?
