MAUNDY THURSDAY, MARCH 29
At 7:00 p.m. on the evening of March 29 we will recall the meaningful messages Jesus gives to his disciples on his last night with his closest companions. The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be served.
GOOD FRIDAY, MARCH 30
At 7:00 p.m. on the evening of March 30 the gathered community will meet in the dimly lighted sanctuary in front of a wooden cross to worship, honor, and show our grateful love for God’s Son… God’s sacrifice for us.
EASTER SUNDAY, APRIL 1
Help us celebrate the heart and soul of our faith, Jesus Christ – the Risen One. The hymns of joy, the prayers of praise and thanksgiving, and the resurrection story found in John 20: 1-18 will lead us into the celebration of Holy Communion.
If anything, people of the resurrection must learn how to be people of prayer. The Bible is full of prayer advice. This morning we will look at two scriptures about prayer. See Psalm 130 and Matthew 6:5-15.
See me. Feel me. Touch me. Hear me. That’s what the Risen Jesus said to his disciples. And the disciples did indeed, see him, feel him, touch him, and hear him. Thomas will share his encounter with us during this Emerging Worship celebration. See John 20: 19-31 and I John 1:1-2:2 to be ahead of the story.
On the road again. This is my favorite post-resurrection story. So rich in detail and emotion. Moral of story: Never give up. And if we do, Jesus meets us on the road away from him as well. See Luke 24: 13-35. It is what good saviors do.
CONFIRMATION SUNDAY! Please come and celebrate with the Lehrian and Santo families as Spencer and Jake publicly profess their faith. We will affirm our faith with them, after all, we are all branches growing from the same vine. See John 15: 1-8 for details.
Worship at Edgewood
Sunday Morning Worship is at 11:00AM September through May
and 10:00AM June-August
Worship services at First Presbyterian Church of Edgewood vary in style from Sunday to Sunday. Most weeks, worshipers will experience what we call "Classic" worship -- a traditional Presbyterian Reformed order of worship with organ accompaniment and choir music leadership. Once per month, "Emerging" worship takes place. This service, while still focusing on the 5 tenents of Presbyterian worship -- gathering around, proclaiming, responding to, sealing upon our hearts, and bearing into the world God's Word -- is presented in a relaxed atmosphere. A video projection screen is placed in the front of the sanctuary, a worship ensemble of mixed instruments accompanies song leaders, and God's Word is presented in a multitude of ways. Worshipers in this service will experience a wide variety of presentations, from reader's theater to VBS kids singing, choral presentations to standard sermons.
