Judea Weekly eNews - Holy Week and other happenings


Holy week begins with Palm Sunday.  Join us this Sunday!  There will be a procession of palms with the children and in lieu of the Passion reading, Pastor Cheryl will give a sermon.  Our quarterly congregational meeting will follow the service and, as usual, there will be a table full of goodies to carry you through the meeting!  All members, please plan to attend as we will be voting on the job description for our new Christian Education Superintent position.  A quorum is needed to hold a valid vote.  Besides, you get to catch up with friends and, among other things, hear about cool ideas for celebrating our 275th anniversary this year!

In addition to the special services this week (see the announcement on the right and also on our home page), there will be a couple of local special musical offerings.  First, this Saturday the 19th, a performance of sacred music will be hosted by Salem Covenant Church and a Good Friday Chant Meditation will be held at St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Litchfield. 

I also want to call your attention to the women's retreat that will be led by Pastor Cheryl October 21-23 at Silver Lake Retreat Center.  Registration information is included in the announcement on the right.  If you are thinking about that special Mothers' Day gift for the important woman in your life, consider gifting her a weekend of contemplation and great company on the journey!

There are more announcements on the right and on our Home page - read on.

Blessings on your week ahead!
