Easter Celebration


Holy week at Zion begins with a special Communion service on Maundy Thursday. The altar is stripped after this service. On Good Friday, congregants find the altar covered in black, the color of mourning.  On the Saturday before Easter, Zion hosts an Easter egg hunt for the families of Little Lambs Early Headstart and the community followed by a light lunch.  The Easter Festivities begin on Cross Mountain with a Sunrise vigil service followed by festive Worship services at 8 and 10:30 AM where congregants are greeted by the fragrance of beautiful Easter lilies decorating the sanctuary. The Chancel choir sings a special Easter hymn. And the youth help flower the Easter cross. The Church Council—with the help of many committee members—host an Easter breakfast buffet served from 7:15 am to 10 am.
