Palm Sunday – April 2

The Palm Sunday Cantata will be presented by the Roser Cantata Choir and Chamber Orchestra at 8:30 or 10:00 AM in person in the Sanctuary or online. FESTIVAL OF FAITH is a celebration of the life and ministry of Christ. Through hymns, original anthems and scripture readings. We will travel with Christ down the dusty roads of Galilee and the ancient stone streets of Jerusalem to the windswept hill of Calvary and enter the garden of resurrection. Everyone is invited to join us for this moving, musical service.

Good Friday – April 7

12:00 Noon in the Chapel and online: YouTube channel
When Jesus dies on the cross, His enemies think they have won.  The one called, “Christ,” is defeated.  Yet, God has a different plan.  This apparent defeat will itself win victory for all victims of death. The Choir will sing O Sacred Journey, arr. Pepper Choplin.

Easter Sunday, April 9

Flower Cross
Everyone is invited to BRING A FLOWER to place on the Cross as a symbol of REBIRTH AND RESURRECTION! Bring your camera to get a photo of your family in front of the cross.

Sermon: Why? When Jesus meets Doubt
Scripture:  John 20:24-31
The Easter story is filled with human drama, people responding and reacting in all sorts of ways — some doubting, some rejoicing, some denying, some not sure what to think.  If we look carefully, we will find ourselves in this story, and we will see how Jesus rose again for all of us, even when we have serious questions.

8:30 AM Worship Service
In the Sanctuary and streamed online. If you watch live we invite you to join the chat on YouTube or use the YouTube App on mobile devices. You will be able to wish your friends and family a Happy Easter!

10:00 AM Worship Service 
Children’s sermon and Easter Egg hunt! This event will be held outdoors in the Sanctuary Parking Lot. Please park in the Thrift Shop or Fellowship Hall parking areas. Handicap parking will be available on the far west of the Sanctuary entrance. We will move inside in case of inclement weather.
