Order of Service – Sunday April 12, 2020 @ 10:30AM – EASTER SUNDAY

REMINDER: We will be sharing an informal Communion service near the end of the service – I’d invite you to find something bread-like and beverage-like (no judgement) in order to participate. If you are watching the recording, I’d encourage you to do the same since. Christ makes the ordinary things of this world HOLY. Taste and see that the LORD is good!

As we prepare our hearts and minds for worship, I’d invite you to watch these clips before we gather.

This is a South African School Choir singing their arrangement of Cohen’s Hallelujah

And please also watch this clip as a set up to the conclusion of Rev. John’s sermon series on Jesus Christ Superstar.

The title track of Jesus Christ Superstar from the 1973 film version

Alleluia Poster for Easter Sunday

Here’s another colouring project for you – colouring can be very calming – but this one might be a bit more of a challenge for you. It comes in four parts that you will tape together to create a huge Alleluia Poster to brighten your Easter celebrations. Please share them with us in the LIVE Zoom Easter worship and afterwards, I’d encourage you to post them on your front doors or windows so that you can share the joy of Easter with your community.
Happy Colouring, St. Andrew’s!
