Greetings in the name of Christ dear friends:

Holy Week 2021 is almost here. Last year this time we were all quite
focused on COVID-19 and the shutdown of the world for weeks and
months and now a year! Easter 2021 is almost here. Are you ready
to celebrate – hopefully with family/friends around the Easter
dinner table?

Your church has been planning for Holy Week for a couple of
months now and you will have the opportunity to see and
experience what they have planned beginning this Sunday, Palm
Sunday, March 28th. Set up in the church Fellowship Hall will be the
Stations of the Cross for you to explore at your own pace.
Fellowship Hall will be open during office hours Monday-Friday 9-
2:30. Please wear your mask and observe social distancing while
participating.

Some of you may be saying – “Just what is the stations of the
cross?” It is fairly new for us reformed Presbyterians but not new
at all to others. Since the earliest days of the church, Christians have
held holy sites where our Lord lived, ministered, and died in high
esteem. As early as the 4th century churches were built on the hill
of Golgotha and procession between them occurred on certain
days.

Born from those making spiritual journeys to the Holy Land, the
Stations of the Cross is a way to make that journey locally. There
are 14 stations in all and you may spend as little or as much time as
you would like at each station reflecting on what is depicted. This
is a powerful way to contemplate and enter into the mystery of
Jesus’ gift of himself to us. I pray you will visit and feel the love of
Christ through this experience.
HAPPY EASTER!
Pastor Mary
