Emmanuel Lutheran Church

Emmanuel Lutheran Church invites you to worship with us during Holy Week. Visitors are expected.

Join us for Maundy Thursday worship on Thursday, March 29 at 5:30 p.m. as we recognize that with nightfall our Lenten observation comes to an end, and we gather with Christians around the world to celebrate the three days of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

At the heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy is Jesus’ commandment to love one another. As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, we are called to follow his example as we humbly care for one another, especially the poor and unloved.

On Good Friday, March 30, worship will be at 5:30 p.m. At the heart of the Good Friday liturgy is the passion according to John, which proclaims Jesus as a triumphant king who reigns from the cross. The ancient title for this day – the triumph of the cross – reminds us that the church gathers not to mourn this day but to celebrated Christ’s life-giving passion and to find strength and hope in the tree of life. In the ancient bidding prayer we offer petitions for the entire world for whom Christ died.

Alleluia! He is risen! The Resurrection of our Lord will be celebrated Sunday, April 1 at 10:30 a.m. with an Easter Festival worship service. Easter breakfast will be served from 9-10 a.m. with a goodwill offering to be collected (Sunday school classes will resume next Sunday, April 8.) Fellowship hour follows the worship service. All are welcome to come and celebrate our Lord’s resurrection!

All are welcome to visit Emmanuel’s Little Free Library and Free Community Pantry located at 639 Elm St. Donations of books, non-perishable food, and personal care items are always accepted. Both are open to the community 24/7.

Heritage Baptist Church

April 1 is being celebrated in the United States as Easter this year. Easter, or as some churches celebrate it, Resurrection Day, is one of two great days of celebration in the Christian Church.

Heritage Baptist Church will be celebrating Easter this year with a special early service at the church. The service will begin at 8:08 am. Refreshments will be available. A discussion of the real meaning and power of the Resurrection will be led by pastor Richard Green. All are welcome.

The Easter celebration will continue Sunday evening beginning at 6:06 pm. This service will be a more formal worship time as we search for the truth in God’s word.

Heritage Baptist Church always seeks to discover what the Bible has to say about the confusing circumstances of our day. The Bible does give us answers, even if we don’t like the answers. We also have other small group studies available. Please call the church for scheduling.

Heritage Baptist Church believes in prayer. If you have a heavy burden call us and allow us to pray with you.

For your contemplation: In “The Little Virtues,” the Italian essayist Natalia Ginzburg argues that we should teach our children “not the little virtues but the great ones. Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money, not caution but courage and a contempt for danger; not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but love for one’s neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know.”

United Methodist Church
