Though not exactly at sunrise, we’ll be gathering for a short time of worship and prayer on the beach at Spanish Banks (near the “Anchor”), as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Join us afterward at the Chapel of the Epiphany, for a light breakfast and a time of fellowship!
This service is an opportunity to prepare ourselves for Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday. We gather for a potluck meal at 6pm. This is followed by a short service, which includes a (optional) foot-washing ritual, commemorating Jesus kneeling to wash his disciples’ feet, and his new command (mandatum) to “love one another, as I have loved you.”
Join us as we celebrate the end of one Christian year, and move into the next. The Church calendar begins on the first Sunday of Advent (December 2), signalling a time of preparation, prayer, and introspection, as we await the celebration of Christmas. On December 1, we want to celebrate all that God has done in our midst through the past year, and look forward to what God will do in us and through us in the year to come! We’ll be eating pizza, playing, and praying together. To RSVP, please email email@example.com
