Celebrate the Great Vigil of Easter

The videos presented below are intended to take you through the evening portion of the Easter Vigil.  The first is the lighting of the New Fire and the blessing of the Paschal Candle.  It is puntuated by the proclamation, "The light of Christ... Thanks be to God!"

Following are 10 readings from the Hebrew Bible, also called the Old Testament.  Each one features different faces and voices of our congregation and church partners.  Some are followed by musical responses, and each one ends with a prayer.

The series concludes with the Prayer of the Day next to the new fire.

The culmination of this service is the Easter Sunrise service to be held at Bethlehem at 7AM Easter Sunday morning.  We hope that you can join us!

You can also plan to worship with us via Live-Stream or Radio on Easter morning at 9:00AM.

Blessings to you as we keep watch for the resurrection of our Lord.

A blessed Easter to All!
