Rector’s Update: The Triduum
Happy Easter and welcome to Restoration!
A few upcoming events:
The Great Vigil of Easter
Holy Saturday is just that— holy, still, quiet, set a part.
We are waiting.
We are talking to God about our uncertainties.
As the day becomes evening, we will gather again at 8:30pm for The Great Vigil of Easter, in joyful anticipation. Our service begins outside, next to the cross holding our sins, near a new fire, with a candle that has been lit in the darkness. The service is beautiful. We will baptize 2 of our friends. We will shout our first Alleluias!! of Easter and we will have a delicious party in fellowship hall. Bring a bell to ring and a treat or beverage to share!
Easter Sunday at 9, 11, and 5
Our joy overflows! We will have 2 shuttles and parking attendants. Please use the lot at the corner of 15th and Quincy! We will have nursery for kids aged 3 and below. Everyone else will be together in the sanctuary to sing our praises! We look forward to celebrating our resurrection hope with you.
Small Group Registration
Encounter God. Journey with others. Come alive to God’s purposes. That sums up what we want each person to experience through small groups. Sign up today.
Race, Reconciliation, and Peacemaking
Restoration will host Todd Deatherage (Executive Director of Telos) and David Bailey (Executive Director of Arrabon) for an evening conversation about the ways proximity leads to empathy which opens the door for reconciliation, peace-making, and unity. We’d love for you to RSVP so we can plan accordingly.
Living God’s Story at Restoration
A few times a year, we host a dinner so you can get to know Restoration and we can get to know you. This is also the first step in our membership process. Our next dinner is on Tuesday, May 17 and we’d love for you to join us.
A quick reminder about Covid-19: Holy Week is an incredible time to come together and we are eagerly awaiting how the Lord will meet us as we gather in-person. At the same time, we are sensitive to both the spectrum of comfort around the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic and concern for people who are still medically vulnerable. Please remember the current CDC guidance for our area: “People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.” Thank you!
