One event on April 12, 2020 at 10:00 am


As we are on the cusp of a set of Holy Week services that will be unlike anything any of us have ever experienced, this message is intended to help you prepare. I am thrilled that our services will now include music! We also intend to offer our services on Zoom and Facebook Live. (So please encourage your family and friends to “Like” the Annisquam Village Church on Facebook so they can easily tune in, too.) We are hoping to make these services as meaningful as possible. Here are some special instructions:

For Maundy Thursday 7 p.m. We remember the night before Jesus died, when he invited his closest friends to be with him. You are invited to have some simple food, such as bread and wine or juice and crackers with you, which we will share at the conclusion of the service. Eating together even when we are apart, is a sign of a love, of a bond, that can not be broken.

For Good Friday 7 p.m. As we remember the death of Jesus, this quiet service will begin and end in silence. To deepen your contemplation, please have with you some kind of a cross – tabletop, wall, or pendant. If you do not have one, you can create one out of twigs.

For Easter Sunday 10 a.m. We celebrate! Wear your “Easter Best” or a floral print. To decorate our virtual church, place some fresh flowers near where you will be sitting if you can.

May these holy days deepen your faith and bring you peace,
-Rev. Sue Keohler-Arsenault
