Lazarus Saturday Festivities


Make plans to join us Saturday, March 31 for Lazarus Saturday festivities! As Great Lent turns into Holy Week, we celebrate the resurrection of all humankind at the raising of Lazarus. 
After the services on Saturday, we will have a fasting-brunch and picnic, easter egg hunt, and outdoor games and crafts for families and children! Families are encouraged to bring picnic blankets or lawn chairs, and 10 filled eggs per child.

Then join us on Sunday for our traditional Palm Sunday service, followed by a catfish feast!

By raising Lazarus from the dead before Your passion, You did confirm the universal Resurrection, O Christ God! Like the children with the palms of victory, We cry out to You, O Vanquisher of death; Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord!
