Holy Week

Here are some of the things you need to know about this week at Christ the Redeemer:

Maundy Thursday (April 2) begins at 6:00 pm with Dinner and the Foot Washing in the Fellowship Hall and then transitions into the Sanctuary for the Eucharist and the Stripping of the Chancel. Note, there will be child care provided for our youngest members during the Eucharist if needed. If you have not yet RSVP’ed for the dinner please do so TODAY (nilegomez@gmail.com).

Good Friday Service begins at 6:00 pm on April 3. We gather to reflect on the Seven Last Words from the Cross and to pray. Child Care for our youngest members will be provided during the service.

Holy Saturday: If you are able to help set up for Easter Sunday (putting up banners; arranging the lilies; rearranging the Fellowship Hall; etc.) then please come to the church at 10:00 am on April 4 and lend a hand.

Easter Day: Invite a friend to join you in worship on Easter. Plan to come early and to bring some cut flowers from your garden (if you have any growing!); the children will begin the service by using them to ‘Flower the Cross’. The day will include an Easter Egg Hunt after worship and a time to fellowship and celebrate together.

Tuesday of Easter Week (April 7) Jennifer Brown is organizing a group to meet at Five Loaves Food Pantry on Tuesday, April 7th at 9:30. All ages are welcome! We will be passing out food and helping to organize for their Tuesday night meal. We should be done by 1:00 and there is pizza afterward. Brother Tim has a mini lesson for the kids on God’s provision. The address is Olivet Christian Church, 14425 Old Courthouse Way, Newport News 23608. It would be great if we could get some kind of head count for who will be able to go. Please let Jennifer know if you can make it (brownie7506@yahoo.com). It will be a great time to bless others and be blessed in return.

New Members and/or Confirmation: If you are wanting to explore membership within Christ the Redeemer or become confirmed within the Anglican Communion please speak to Brian+ or email him (revbriancampbell@gmail.com).

Save the Date:

  • Compassion Sunday is set for April 26.
  • ‘Rwandan School Project’ Lunch and Information day is set for Sunday May 17 after worship.
  • Vacation Bible School is set for June 29- July 3 this summer.

Looking forward to a great Holy Week.
