Holy Week Activities

Dear Friends;
Here are the activities for this Holy Week at Emanuel  —–  Please forward to anyone who is not listed above.  We are still working on the directory updates.
We will have a Maundy Thursday (bi-lingual) service at April 13th, 7 pm, to memorialize the Great Thanksgiving.
Good Friday service is also bi-lingual and begins at April 14th, 7 pm.   Friday’s service will prepare us, through Christ’s death, for the joy of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.  We are grateful to Maria Torres and Will Dorward for leading us in these two reflections.  We will celebrate communion with the bread and wine blessed by Pastor Cindy on Palm Sunday, especially for this Holy Week.
On Saturday, April 15th, we will have a Clean Up and Make Ready for Easter Sunday starting at 9 am.  We’ll also be setting up for Sunday’s Breakfast Pot Luck, so feel free to bring Easter decor for Ericson Hall and Easter lilies and cut flowers for the Sanctuary.  Also on Saturday, the Back to School Carnival Committee will meet at 1 pm.
On Sunday, April 16th, Pastor Kris Totzke, from the NTNL Synod will lead us in our Easter Celebration.  She’s excited about conducting services and the Baptism for one of our families.
We’ll resume the Wednesday Family Night next week, where we share a simple supper and will begin our multi-week discussions on “Know Your Rights” on civil rights and immigration issues. Please invite family and friends to share in this fellowship.
In Peace and Grace,
Connie McLouth
