Easter

Fifth Sunday of Easter

Welcome to our online worship service! This morning we will celebrate communion. You are invited to gather whatever you have available for your communion elements. For the ‘bread’: a bun, crackers (yes, Goldfish crackers are perfectly ok!), bread, etc. For the wine: juice, milk, water, wine, ice tea, etc.
