Easter Sunday

March 31, 2024

Come out before the 10:00 a.m. service and join in the flowering of the Cross.

The flowering of the Cross represents the transition from Good Friday to Easter. From meditation on Jesus' death to joyful celebration of his resurrection. The ceremony transforms a barren cross, a reminder of the new life that emerges from Jesus's death.
