We will be gathering for worship during the week leading up to Easter, remembering Jesus’ actions leading to the cross and resurrection:
Christ in the Passover, we will gather at 6:00 pm for a potluck dinner and then after dinner we will have a visual presentation of the Jewish Seder.
Maundy Thursday, we worship at 7:30 pm, along with the people of the Presbyterian Church of Pakistan, celebration of the Lord’s Supper on the night Jesus gave the sacrament to the Disciples.
Good Friday, we gather at 12:00 noon for a one-hour service, on the day Jesus was crucified.
Easter Sunday, we join to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection! Morning worship at 11:00. (Sunday School will be held as usual at 9:30).
On April 1st, 6:00-8:30, Stewart Weinisch (bio) from Jews for Jesus will lead a special gathering on the meaning of Passover in light of Easter.
“Christ in the Passover” shows the link between the ancient Festival of Redemption and Christ as the Lamb of God.
Stewart will lead us through Scripture and a visual presentation of the Jewish Seder weaving the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ. The words Jesus spoke in the upper room come alive as each Hebraic item is carefully explained.
We will enjoy a potluck supper together at 6:00 (look for sign-up sheets soon), followed by the presentation at approximately 6:45.
Can't make it for dinner? Come when you can!
Help Host Families in Need in Northeast Philadelphia
Next month, April, our church will again be hosting families who have become homeless as we work with Northwest Interfaith Hospitality Network, an organization dedicated to working with neighborhood churches and synagogues to this end.
Three families from the Northeast will be spending the night at Rhawnhurst while in Interfaith's program to help them get back in a home.
There will be plenty of opportunities for everyone to help out. Sign-up to provide a meal, host dinner, help out with homework, lead evening fun activities for the kids, and to stay overnight.
We welcome all churches to participate in this hosting in whatever way they would be willing.
