Lent and Easter at Saint Andrew's
Lent and Easter is a special time at Saint Andrew's. Below you will find more information about how Saint Andrew's reflects and celebrates during these times.
Each year on Ash Wednesday, we hold worship services on this special day. Check the calendar for times.
Each year, we have a special Lenten Bible Study class for anyone who wishes to dig deeper into the lessons of the season.
On Good Friday, we remember the death and sacrifice of Jesus by a service of Tenebrae (Darkness). Candles are extinguished and the darkness comes. This service, too, is moving, for we leave the service in darkness, yearning for the light of Easter. I do not believe you can appreciate the light and joy of Easter Sunday without having gone through the darkness of Good Friday.
On Easter Sunday, we celebrate the joy of the Resurrection by a service of Word and Table. Children's Easter Egg Hunt, Children's Moment and Sunday School are also enjoyed on this day.
Youth Easter Event
We always have a special youth event that takes the youth deeper into the Holy Week story. Sometimes it is a Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt, an Easter Escape Room, or Easter Worship Stations.
Easter Egg Hunt
We also have an annual Easter Egg Hunt for the children. This year, the Easter Egg Hunt will begin at 9:15AM in the Church Lobby. Weather permitting, part of the Hunt will be outside so please dress appropriately.
