News for the Week of April 9, 2017

Here are your weekly announcements – please read about the many activities and events at Central!

In particular, I remind you that this Sunday, April 9th is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week.  We will celebrate the Sacrament of Communion at our worship service and enjoy a congregational soup lunch following the service.  Then on Thursday, April 13th, we will hold a Maundy Thursday service with a special choir presentation of a Tenebrae Service, once again including Communion.  On Good Friday, April 14th,  we will have a worship service at 10:00 a.m. reading the gospel narrative according to the book of Matthew.  Then on Easter Sunday, April 16th, we will offer a Sunrise Service with Communion at 8 a.m. (outdoors, weather permitting) followed by a light breakfast.  Then finally, a celebration service, with Communion and the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus, will be held at 10:00 a.m.  I do hope many of you will be able to attend some or all of these services.

In addition, I draw your special attention to the announcements regarding the upcoming beef dinner and silent auction; our Lenten Project in support of Ontario Christian Gleaners and the opportunity to support our Easter Flowers to Shut-ins Project.
