|The Great Vigil of Easter
Saturday, April 19th, at 8:00 p.m.
The Easter Vigil begins in darkness as a "new fire" is lit amid the darkness. From this "new fire" all the other candles in the sanctuary are lit. This return of light symbolizes the resurrection of Jesus from the grave and the light of salvation and hope God brought into the world through the resurrection, the triumph of the light of God's grace and salvation over the darkness of death and sin.

This Vigil is one of the most ancient and beautiful liturgies of the church, as it transitions from darkness to light, and from Lent into Easter. In the middle of the service, the Resurrection will be proclaimed, and it is tradition that
congregants ring bells to celebrate that joyous moment.
Please join us for this special service,
and don't forget to bring your bell!
Services are at 8:00, 9:00 and
Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead!
All are invited to bring cut flowers for the Flowering of the Cross at all services on Easter Day.
