The season of Lent is almost finished and soon we will celebrate the victory of the Resurrection. Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday on April 2. Following our worship service that day, all families with children are invited to Gwynne Vaughan Park on Fairfield Island for Kids' Club in the Park. There will be a hot dog lunch, games, crafts, an Easter lesson ... and an Easter egg hunt!
On Maundy (Holy) Thursday, April 6 we will have a Communion Service and on Good Friday, April 7 we will gather for a traditional Service of Darkness at 7:00 pm. Easter Sunday will begin with a breakfast, by donation, at 9:00 am followed by our worship celebration at 10:00 am.
