Dear Church Family –
Despite the pandemic, Easter is this Sunday! And please please remember that Resurrection will happen even if we are staying safe at home in quarantine. Easter doesn’t depend on glorious music and beautiful flowers and pretty clothes and big family dinners – though those are all really wonderful ways to celebrate. The first Easter took place with no fanfare, no celebration, no filled church pews. The first Easter happened when the disciples were scattered and in hiding and Jesus’ followers were confused and frightened. The women went to the tomb in fear and in the darkness. I think that this year, perhaps, looks a lot more like the first Easter as we live in fear and confusion and are hiding in our homes. However, it will still be Easter. Resurrection is not fragile and it isn’t up to us. Resurrection depends on God and God will not let us down.
Today is Good Friday, I hope that you will take some quiet time to reflect on the day.
Easter Sunrise is a favorite service for many of us. However, we will not have our traditional sunrise service this year. You are encouraged to go outside and enjoy the sunrise yourself. (Take a picture and send it to me!) Sing your favorite songs and remember that first Easter morning, when the women discovered the empty tomb at the break of day. If you are interested in doing a service yourself or with your family – you can find a sunrise service offering from “worship well” on the church website.
We will have a sunrise service, on the first Sunday when we are able to safely gather together. Rev. Paul Sawyer and I are planning a combined Sunrise service for that Sunday – “the Dawn of a New Day”. And I hope we will have a church breakfast to follow!!

The amazing Ginny Dow will be playing the organ for the hymns! (don’t worry, we will stay 6 feet apart in the sanctuary!!) We will gather online and sing and pray and reflect on the resurrection story for our lives today. Please find the bulletin on the church website. (and note that for singing the hymns you can either use the printed lyrics or find the scanned hymn page on the website which will be added by Sunday morning). If you are NOT on the church email list, you are welcome to join us, but you will need the password. Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org for that information!!
I am looking for your photos of hope and resurrection to share on Easter Morning . . . What makes you feel hopeful? What reminds you of new life? Where do you see resurrection today? please email me photos that you are willing to share as part of a gathering time – your images of hope and resurrection! And if you have a sunrise photo from Easter morning – send it along before 8:30am so I can include it in the service!
Please reach out if you need anything, please call each other, please check on your neighbor. Let us be kind, compassionate, patient and gentle with each and with ourselves.
Be safe, stay home, wash your hands! Get outside and breathe fresh air!
And may your faith be greater than your fear today and each day to come.
In the greatest of hope – Lucia
