Please join us for our Celebration of Easter – April 5!

The highlight of the 10:00 am service will be the parade of the Church School students waving their palms.

Maundy Thursday, April 2, 7:00 pm

A quiet contemplative “tenebrae” service (early evening, without lights) with communion.

Good Friday Vigil

As is tradition, FCC will be reading the entire New Testament from the pulpit on Good Friday. Sign up for 20-minute blocks between 6:00 am and midnight. The sign-up sheet is posted in Parish Hall or you can contact Lou Converse.

Carrying the Cross

Come help carry the cross from our church to St. Luke’s. An all-community Good Friday Worship will follow at St. Luke’s between 12:00 noon and 3:00 pm.

Easter Sunday at FCC

Easter morning will commence with a 7:00 am Sunrise Service at Mather Cemetery on Stephen Road. We will then have two identical services at 9:00 am and 11:00 am, complete with balloons and “The Hallelujah Chorus”. In between the two services, please join us for coffee, fruit, and sweets.  At approximately 10:30  we will have an Easter Egg hunt for small children in the Nursery School playground. Bring your own baskets.
