Easter Day, April 9
5:30am • Lay-led Easter Sunrise Service
This prayer service includes readings and song, following a multi-sensory approach. We begin by a warm fire near the baptismal font, read stories in the narthex that leads us into the “tomb” (the sanctuary). We then conclude the hour-long service by processing outside into the light, and celebrate by eating hot-cross buns.
