at First Presbyterian
March 25th 10:30am
Don’t miss worship this week as we begin Holy Week with songs of “Hosanna” and a Palm parade of the children, and end with cries of “Crucify Him” as we hear a dramatic reading from Mark’s gospel. We cannot run to the empty tomb of Easter until we weep awhile at the foot of the cross.
Soup Supper 6:30pm
Worship & Communion 7:00pm
After supper, we will celebrate communion around tables in Fellowship Hall and then travel to the sanctuary for a somber service of Tenebrae – a service of growing darkness as we hear the story of Jesus’ last hours. This is a quiet, sad reflective service fitting for older children and adults, though the first part of the evening including communion is suitable for all ages.
Watch and Pray Vigil
March 31st 6:00pm–Midnight
All Night Prayer Vigil in the Sanctuary and Kendall Lounge. Join us as we explore what it means to wait for, and with, Jesus. Scripture readings on the hour followed by sharing; come for all or part of the night. There will be food to share and lots of caffeine! All are welcome.
Easter Sunday April 1st 6:30am
Community service on the shore of Peddie Lake, behind the First Baptist Church of Hightstown.
Easter Sunday April 1st 10:30am
Come for the festive, joyous celebration where we will sing out our Alleluias and celebrate communion at the Lord's Table as we go from the purple of Lenten repentance to the bright white of Easter resurrection joy! The children will be invited to “Count the Alleluias” and get a special treat at the end. Festive Easter hymns and anthems will include trumpet accompaniment.
