Children will process with palm branches, recalling the acclaim for Jesus as he entered Jerusalem. Readings and music will take us from that triumphant moment to Jesus' understanding that he would be rejected.
Holy Communion becomes ever more poignant as we recall Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples, which forever changed the Passover meal.
12:00 noon, Oyster Bay Baptist Church
An ecumenical service, this observance brings together the Island's Christian community. Clergy from many churches will offer scripture readings and prayers. The worship service will be followed by a Lenten luncheon of soup and bread.
6:00 a.m., Gulf State Park Pavilion
Please join us for this ecumenical service, which has become one of the area's cherished religious traditions.
Easter Worship with Holy Communion
8:00 and 10:00 a.m.
Handbells, hymns, and high spirits mark the most joyous day of the Christian year. Rev. Wood will bring the message. Please join us at the close of worship in singing Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus." And children are invited to an Easter egg hunt on the lawn!
