An enthusiastic “thank you” to all who made the Easter Service a spirited Celebration: Mark and the Choir, our trumpet player Joe Porcella, our baker-in-residence Richard, all who brought flowering plants, the children who brought them forward and helped to arrange them as a tribute to the Risen Lord, and to all who attended worship and voiced in litanies, prayers and hymns the message of Easter.
We thank also the men who later moved the furniture out of the sanctuary in preparation for the concert this Saturday afternoon.
