Dear Schweitzer Friends,
As Good Friday and Easter is upon us, do plan on joining us for worship this weekend. There are two Good Friday Worship experiences in the Outreach Center, 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. We will journey through the final hours of Jesus’ life and crucifixion.
Traditional worship will be led by the chancel choir, brass, and bells at 8:20 and 11:00. Modern Worship in the sanctuary at 9:40 and in the Outreach Center at 11:00 will be led by our Praise Team and will also feature a video from Schweitzer’s Creative. Our Church @ the Center gathering is at 5:00 p.m. The Easter message in all our services will share the Risen Jesus related in the Gospel of John 20:19-29. Who are friends and family you can invite to worship with you?
If you are new to Schweitzer, and have questions about Jesus, the church, or would like to know how to get better connected, join me, April 23, at 12:00 noon in Memorial Hall. We will feed you great bbq, offer you a tour of the campus and get you headed home by 1:30. Childcare is available. To sign up, email Pastor Jim Mason, firstname.lastname@example.org.
