The Weekly News

Maundy Thursday, April 18 | 6pm

A Moveable Feast: Our worship begins with the recounting of the Maundy Thursday story around candlelit tables in our Fellowship Center as we share in a “family style” meal of rice and beans served by first century disciples. This “meager meal” is typical of food eaten by 2/3 of our Christian brothers and sisters and reflects our response to Christ’s command that “the first shall be last. . .” As dinner progresses, we will meet five of the key participants in the unfolding story of that fateful night who will share their stories with us.  We’ll move to the Sanctuary and share in the Lord’s Supper amidst appropriate music and scripture. Finally, as the events of the night darken around us, we will drape our Sanctuary in black cloths and depart to face Good Friday. As part of our evening’s worship, we will gather a free will offering to be given to Extended Hands Food Bank for care of our needy neighbors here in Fountain Hills.

Holy Saturday, April 20 | 7pm

The Great Vigil of Easter: Joining in the tradition of the historic Protestant Church, we gather in mourning in a sanctuary draped and dim. At the mid-point of the service, the world changes before our eyes and the shadows of despair yield to the clear light of new hope. Our sanctuary – and our lives – are transformed! A world which had formerly appeared dark and foreboding is now bright and blossomed with promise. Resurrection has triumphed and our first Easter celebration has begun amidst flowers and alleluias!

Extended Hands Food Bank is expecting extra demand in the upcoming period before and during Holy Week. Please be generous in donating food items in the cart outside the Narthex for the next several Sundays. The food bank distributes the food to the neediest in Fountain Hills. Thank you!

April 15 | 7 pm | Home of Maria Berry  The April meeting of the Women’s Evening Circle will be held at the home of Maria Berry, 14923 E. Summit Drive. Louise Jones will be our co-hostess. The Bible Study will be Lesson Eight of the Horizons study book “God’s Promise – I Am With You.” Each month’s study looks at thematic passages of scripture where God consistently promises that He is with us.
