From the first strains of the cantata “Once Upon a Tree” to the last notes of the “Hallelujah Chorus” and “Go Out With Joy” on Easter Sunday, it was a deeply meaningful Holy Week and Easter for our spiritual community.

Enormous gratitude to Dr. Herman Weiss; soloists Rebecca Shrimpton, Paul Knox and Jim Brennan; Good Friday musician Kelsey Boyea; our Easter Sunday guest musicians; our Deacons; and all our participants in the Maundy Thursday commemoration for blessing us with their time and gifts to help make it so.

As we enter the month of May and continue our time of Easter celebration:

We will celebrate both the Sacrament of Communion and the Sacrament of Baptism for William Vickery, son of Tom and Lindsey (Ferm) Vickery on Sunday, May 1. We celebrated the Baptism of William’s brother Charlie in our Sanctuary back in early March of 2020.

On Sunday, May 8, we will give thanks for and honor Mothers near and far.

On Sunday, May 15 and Sunday, May 22, Rev. Mark will be away. Rev. Dr. Dave VanArsdale will return to serve as Worship Leader and Preacher on May 15, while our own Jeanne Westcott will serve in that role on May 22.

Lastly, on Sunday, May 29, we will host the Legion for a Memorial Day weekend Worship time at 10am. Details are still being determined.
