Dear Folks,

We are facing a truly eventful week, a journey that defines our faith as Christians.

Our first stop along the journey is our Seder meal with scenes from the Last Supper at 6:30 P.M., Thursday, March 24.  Reservations are closed.

Following the Seder at 7:45 P.M., everyone is invited to the service of shadows, Tenebrae.  We will journey with Jesus through betrayal, denial, arrest, beating, trial, and to the cross. 

Our journey then takes us to Good Friday, March 25.  Services are at noon and 7 P.M.  We stand at the cross and see our Savior die.

But, death cannot hold the Christ!  Easter morning brings us to Jesus' day of resurrection.  Our journey takes us to the empty tomb.

The Ecumenical Easter Sunrise Service will be held at 6:30 A.M. at Jones Family Farm, Sunday, March 27.  Worship at HCCUCC will be at 9 A.M. and 11 A.M.

But, our journey doesn't end.  This is only the beginning of our lives as committed, faithful followers of Christ.

Let us pray.  O God, as we walk with Christ this week, may we truly feel the enormity of it all and recommit our lives to Christ's service.  Amen.

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille

P.S.  The choral choir, bell choir, and the Sacred Dancers will be practicing at HCCUCC at 4 P.M. on Saturday, March 26.
