Palm Sunday

In order to celebrate Palm Sunday with a palm processional, we’re going to need palms!  Our friends at Illustrated Ministry have offered this picture of a palm. Simply print it out, color it, and bring it with you to worship on Sunday morning.  We’ll wave our palms and sing “Prepare Ye” together!  If you’d like, you are also welcome to bring a candle to set the tone for our service together.

Holy Saturday

Our UCC conference is organizing a virtual Easter Egg Hunt.  Participating churches ‘hide’ an Easter egg on their church website.  Then anyone can search the websites for the eggs.  Many of the eggs will be clickable (clicking on them will take you to a kids’ activity).  To join in, simply follow this link

 

Also, for those who are missing the opportunity to make and enjoy hot cross buns, Christina Arndt has generously shared her recipe with us. (Note that Christina doesn’t do pastry for the crosses on top.  She mixes lemon juice and powdered sugar into a thick icing and pipes it from a Ziploc bag with a hole cut in the corner.  I think that’s part of why they taste so good.  Plus, she makes them with love.)

Easter Morning

Service via Zoom at 10:00 a.m. Everyone is invited to bring some sign or symbol of new life to display on screen with you.  It might be a flower, a photo, an art project, a seashell, a stone, or anything else that represents resurrection to you.  We’ll put them in front of our screens to remind ourselves and each other that new life is real and all around us. Meeting ID: 585 732 737, One tap mobile: +16699006833,,585732737# US (San Jose).
