Easter Morning Celebrations

EASTER WORSHIP SERVICES  
April 1, 2018
8:30 and 11:00 a.m.

The triumphant Resurrection of the Lord is celebrated Easter morning with two joyous worship services. The services are identical and are held in the Sanctuary. This year, Easter falls on a first Sunday, which means there will be communion. Nursery care is available — but children are always welcome in worship. Please join us!

About communion: The invitation to the Lord’s Supper is extended to all who desire to follow Christ, remembering that access to the communion table is not a right conferred upon the worthy, but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love.  Even one who has doubts or whose trust is wavering is invited to the table in order to be assured of God’s love and grace in Christ Jesus.

 

Community Sunrise Service - 6:45 a.m. @ Levitt Shell

All are invited to a beautiful sunrise service, beginning at 6:45 a.m. at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park. Presented by Evergreen Presbyterian Church, First Baptist Church, Greater Lewis Missionary Baptist, Idlewild Presbyterian Church, Lindenwood Christian Church, Rhodes College Chaplain's Office, and Trinity United Methodist.
