First Presbyterian Church in Effingham     HOLY WEEK:  APRIL 14-21

All Events have Activities Suitable for All Ages

SUN/APR 14 9:30 am Palm Sunday Cantata Worship; Easter Egg Hunt/Brunch

The Youth-Adult Cantata Worship features a variety of inspirational music and narrations depicting Holy Week events and how modern humans related to the crucifixion and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  The service will begin with palm branches and exuberance; just like the crowds welcoming Jesus to Jerusalem displayed on that first Palm Sunday.  Worship ends on a more somber note to begin Holy Week.  

THU/APR 18 6:30 pm Maundy (Holy) Thursday Service/Communion/Dinner (6 pm Crudités)

Community and members are invited to partake in a soup/salad supper featuring elements of a Seder Meal and communion for all who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Many interactive 'hands on" activities will be available for all ages to recount the passion of our Lord.  

A prayer labyrinth for prayer & meditation will be located in Hagman Hall.  The Sanctuary will also be accessible for prayer and medication.  A pastor will be available throughout the vigil.  

SUN/APR 21 9:30 am Easter Sunday Worship/Communion/K-5th Choir Sings

An Open Communion Table welcoming all who proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior

Worship begins in darkness and silence, but is then transformed into light and praise as believers remember the resurrection of Jesus and the salvation it bought for all humans.
