All the details are in the body of the email below, but read this to know what's happening this Easter!

-Kids Easter Event at Sherando Park this Sat from 10-11:30am
-In-person worship opportunities for Easter Sunday include:
  • 9am Outdoor Service in the parking lot.  Bring chairs and we have plenty of room for everyone! 
  • Indoor Sanctuary Service at 11 (You have to register for this one by Friday at 2pm and you can do that here:
  • You can watch the live-streamed sanctuary service at 11 or anytime after
****We are providing kids worship bags for all services and the emailed version for home worshippers.
-There won't be a Sunday School ZOOM Meeting this Sunday.  We do have something to give you after in-person Easter Church that will also be emailed to families on Sunday too! 

Come join us for a fun chance to gather and connect with other kids and families!  This will be a fun and safe opportunity to remember the good news of Easter and celebrate together with some special activities. We have rented the shelter and have plenty of room to move around and social distance.  We do want to have an idea of how many would like to come, so write if you would like to attend.  Here is the map of where to find the Ruritan Shelter!  Take a right just past the Ranger Station and park in the big lot there.

There will not be ZOOM Sunday School on Easter, but we will be emailing (or giving you something in person) to help you think about this important and special day.  

For April 11, we're going to try ZOOM Sunday School at 1pm.  This way, we can begin to do more in-person things on Sunday mornings, but still have a time to connect virtually too.   

Check out these 24 cards with different activities and conversations that you can do whenever you want during this season of Lent/Eastertide.  It is sure to help prepare the hearts of your family to celebrate Easter!  They were mailed out and are available on the CM Table in the church building.

Once you've completed all the cards the back of each completed piece will form a springtime puzzle with hidden objects to find.  Any family that takes a picture of their puzzle, signifying they completed all the cards will be entered to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card prize!!  Photos must be submitted by April 17th! 

Children's Choir rehearsals are happening on Thursdays at 4:30 in the Children's Choir Room/Rumble Room area.  This year we are making music with instruments and are starting to do a little bit of singing while properly distanced and masked!   The choir is for children ages four and up. It's never too late to come and try it out-- just let Amy Bowman know so she can plan instrument parts for the right amount of children.   Email if you're interested or would like more information! 

Did you catch the children's choir on Palm Sunday?

The Worship Live Stream for this Sunday is at 11 am!

Check out our YouTube LivestreamFacebook page, or Virtual Church webpage at 11 AM.  If you miss seeing it live, it will be available anytime following the service 

 VBS July 18-22 

This will definitely be our date and theme for VBS!  This is later than usual on account of school letting out later and the unknowns of the pandemic.  Last year we had a safe and successful VBS by staying outdoors, distanced, masked, and parents came too as kids stayed in groups with their family.  At the LEAST, we could do that this summer on this week, but we are hoping and praying that things improve significantly with the pandemic where we could safely have a more traditional format.  Stay tuned on the "How", but for now, we wanted to at least share the "What?" and the "When?"
