Chalice Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

Holy Week 2016

Holy Week marks the final week of Lent, ending with the celebration of the resurrection on Easter Sunday. It's also not far away!

Here's what's coming up in the following days as we approach Easter. 
  • March 20 is Palm Sunday. We'll gather at 9:45 a.m. in the Fry's parking lot. If you'd rather not process you're welcome to gather for worship as usual.
  • Our only holy week service will be Maundy Thursday at 7 p.m. That's March 24th, in case you're wondering. 
  • We'll begin Easter celebrations with the Easter Vigil at 7:30 a.m. Easter is March 27th, in case you're wondering that, too. 
  • Bring your filled up Week of Compassion box with you to the early service! 
  • Breakfast will follow! Contact Carol Grisez if you'd like to help provide food or have more questions. 
  • The Egg Hunt will start at 9:15. Eggs to take home and stuff will be available this Sunday. You can also bring small toys or candy to stuff the egg to church. Either way, get them to Angie Hepworth. 
  • We'll have our regular Easter worship at 10 a.m. 
  • We'll have some fun things beyond breakfast and egg hunt arranged for the time in between services. There are a lot of exclamation points floating around here. It's almost time to celebrate!

Want to March on Palm Sunday? 

It's really easy! We'll meet at the end of Fry's parking lot, closest to the church. You just need to bring yourself. Palms will be there, ready to grab. We'll start gathering at 9:45 and leave about 9:55. 

I know who I am, do you?
There will be name sticky back name tags available on Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.  Please  wear one as a sign of hospitality and welcome from the Chalice family.  On the two Sundays after Easter, you will have a chance to sign up for the "permanent" style of name tag that you would like to wear.  The choices are; pin, magnet, clip, lanyard or sticky (disposable).  The name tags will be ready for use by April 17th.

Thank You
Thank you to our Church family who came to help us celebrate mom, grandmother, great-grandmother's - Dee Lobdell's 90th birthday. She had such a wonderful time seeing so many people who are important to her.  You all have a very special gift.

With Gratitude, Dee's family

A Few Notes 
  • Peanut butter Sunday is this week, stock up and bring your donations in with you.
  • We need a 10ft. ladder to replace some lights in the Worship Center.  Please contact Brayden Corner   
  •  We need a Grass Raker. Yes, the grass is fake, but to keep it standing up and looking like it’s real, it needs to be raked regularly. If you’re willing to lend a hand, please contact Brayden Corner.
