April 20--Easter
9:30 &11:00 "Easter Hallelujahs!" The Ministers and the Chalice Singers
Easter comes packed with a lot of doctrines in some places, but not here. We celebrate the joy and hope of the season and the many kinds of resurrections that are part of our lives. Rebecca will visit with our very youngest UUs at the beginning of the service and elementary-age children will adjourn to an egg hunt. Anyone who has ever sung Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” in a choir is welcome to join the Chalice Singers on the platform. Music is provided and if you want a quick refresher, come to the choir rehearsal at 7:00 pm on Thursday April 17. Music is also available here.
