On the Thursday evening before Easter, Mt. Zion hosted a Maundy Thursday service, with open communion from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Many came and spent time either at the altar or in their seat to celebrate The Last Supper.
Our Good Friday service, at 7pm, was a wonderful time remembering what the cross meant to each of us personally.
We held our Easter morning Sunrise Service at 7 am. Songs of the faith and Scripture reminded us that Jesus is Alive! Breakfast followed our Sunrise Service. So many came that we had to set up more tables. That was a good problem.
Our 9:30 Easter service was packed with people, and filled with music and God’s Word.
