|Sunday, April 4 “The Wisdom of a Slow Resurrection; A Drive-In Easter”
Very soon this spring we will celebrate the emergence of a local brood of seventeen-year cicadas! How noisy and exciting that will be! As the buried cicadas taking their sweet time to rise again teach us, resurrection can take a lot longer than three days (because we’re not Jesus). Let’s CELEBRATE being together as we rise and emerge into a brand new -and very slow- resurrection of our very own. It sure is taking longer than three days, but we can rejoice that it certainly won’t take seventeen years!
Our Easter service will be live with several ways to participate:
In your car in the NW parking lot!
Here is how the in-person service will work:
-An usher will greet you as you enter the parking lot and will hand out orders of service. You will be given instructions on how to tune in using your FM radio to the 88.3 frequency.
-Drivers will be directed to park in 1st row as you enter the lot, closest to stage and facing the stage. As each row fills, the ushers will guide cars to the next row. Cars will be staggered to improve visibility for all.
-Ushers will repeat filling additional rows as space allows.
-They will direct cars to the overflow spaces (back of parking lot) after all available rows are filled.
-In the overflow spaces, cars will be directed to back-in to the spot if possible (allows view of stage).
-The ushers will direct cars that wish to leave immediately after the service by releasing 1st row of cars first.
-Following the service there will be tours of the renovations! Be sure to wear your masks!
Please arrive no later than 9:45 am! This is our first outdoor service, and we are doing all we can to make it a joyous gathering.
There might even be a visit by the Easter Bunny…
