The Good Friday service was very meaningful. The story of the resurrection of Jesus was read, accompanied with some animations. The story was brought to life with a re-enactment by Minister Stephaine and congregation members David Hooker, John DeBono, Rick McAskill, Doug Watson and Ted Smith. The choir’s anthem was entitled “Ave Verum”.
On Easter Sunday, Barb Martyn and Rick McAskill greeted people as they entered the sanctuary. There were numerous beautiful Easter bonnets being worn by the ladies. As church began, one of our members portrayed Mary, mother of Jesus, and came running in to the sanctuary shouting, “Jesus is alive, Jesus is alive!” She explained to the congregation what she had found at the tomb, and how we are now going to have an Easter Party. The congregation was asked to help decorate the Sanctuary with flowers, balloons, candles, and of course, the cross. Roger Bullock, Linda Buscher and Eleanor Sturman visited the Birthday Box. Tara Taylor gave the Minute for Mission report. The choir’s anthem was dedicated to those injured and killed in Sri Lanka. Minister Stephanie brought a resurrection plant for the 'Young at Heart' story. She said that the plant looks dead, but if you put it in water, it will come back to life. Minister Stephanie then added that God never gives up on us, and that we should not give up on others. Many members of the congregation brought flowers to the church in memory of family members that had passed. Minister Stephanie reminded everyone that Jesus lives in us all.
