MAUNDY THURSDAY AND THE SERVICE OF SHADOWS

7:00 PM in the Meetinghouse

To many, the most moving service of the year. We remember Jesus’ Last Supper with his followers, and hear of the events that follow; as the tale grows darker and darker, we slowly darken the Meetinghouse, extinguishing candles as we go, eventually leaving in darkness and silence. Powerful!

GOOD FRIDAY ECUMENICAL SERVICE AT 1ST LUTHERAN

7:30 pm

With pastors and members of First Lutheran, Cotuit Federated Church, and First Baptist Church, Hyannis, we celebrate Good Friday with a solemn reading of the Gospel and much music and prayer.

NO SATURDAY SERVICE THIS WEEK

So that we might all celebrate Easter together, no Saturday service this week.

EASTER MORNING IN THE GARDEN

7:30 am

Just as Easter was first made known to the women in the garden, so too we gather in our beautiful garden chapel for our “sunrise” service.  It is so gorgeous, with the rhodies framing the pulpit, benches to sit on, a stone wall surrounding us, birds singing, voices singing “Jesus Christ is Risen Today.” 

If the weather is inclement, we move into the Meetinghouse. If merely chilly, bring blankets and a seat cushion and we will supply the rest!

EASTER AT 10:00 IN THE MEETINGHOUSE

Lilies, trumpets, choir, the Hallelujah Chorus, children, youth, adults, joy JOY JOY!

Followed by an Easter Egg Hunt!
