From The Pastor...

Dear Friends,

     As the month of April begins, we look forward to a very special time in the life of the church.

     We begin with the celebration of the sacrament of Holy Communion on April 2nd and continue with our final mid-week Lenten service on the 5th.  Palm Sunday, April 9th begins with an uplifting worship service and the sound of handbells followed by the annual Palm Sunday Brunch in Bittle Hall.

     Holy Week brings our Maundy Thursday service with Holy Communion and the solemn Stripping of the Altar.  The church will sit in darkness until Easter morning, when we joyfully celebrate the greatest day in the Christian year.  On that day our church will be alive with the beauty and fragrance of the Easter flowers, the sounds of uplifting “Alleluias” and great music, followed by the excitement of children as they rush to find Easter eggs on the front lawn.

     As you read through this newsletter, you will discover many things that are happening and many opportunities ahead in which you are invited to participate.  We look forward with great anticipation to the installation of the new organ in May and a dedication recital to be held in the summer.

     The Education & Discipleship Team has selected the VBS program for this year—”Hero Central” and you will find enclosed a sign-up sheet for you to decide how you can use your talents and share the gospel with our children.

     There are also opportunities for you to participate in service and fellowship spread throughout the newsletter, as well as information about St. John’s, our community and the wider church.

     As we celebrate the beginning of Spring and all of the exciting things it brings to our lives and to our church, may you be blessed in many ways—and may you be a blessing to others as we celebrate and share the good news of Christ’s resurrection!
