Holy Week and Easter 2017

Good Friday April 14, 2017 at 7:00pm in Edith J. Carrier Arboretum: Death isn't the easiest thing to talk about. Crucifixion of an innocent god-man? That's probably harder. But when we gather and remember the death of Jesus, we do so as a community that recognizes that life is fragile, and hatred can do a whole lot of damage. But Jesus demonstrates the way of love in the face of hatred and rejection. Come join us as we reflect on what that might mean for us as we seek to mend God's creation together.

Easter Sunday: RISE is gonna throw down for Easter this year at the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum on Sunday April 16th. Breakfast is gonna blow your mind. (in fact, if you want to respond to this email and make a special request for breakfast, we’ll do our best to have it there, within reason of course. We probably can’t pull off an omelet station after all) Breakfast will start at 9:15(ish) followed by worship in a stunning, outdoor environment at 10(ish). I mean really, does it get any more beautiful than mid-April in the Arboretum? Wear your bowtie, your Easter bonnet, your prom dress, your Easter flip flops, or your pajamas, we don’t really care. We just want to celebrate with you! Spread the word, bring your friends, and tell them there will be sausage muffins, ducks, and some really friendly folks.
