This year, we are adding two activities that I hope you will support by your attendance. First, we are arranging home communions to occur each week of Lent. You will receive a personal invitation to one of these, a week or ten days in advance of the event. The communion service will take place either in the home of a member or at one of our two church buildings. We will meet at 7:30 on a week night and be done by 9. People from both congregations will be invited to the evenings, to create an opportunity to get to know each other better as we move closer to merger. In addition to sharing the Lord’s Supper, we will spend some time sharing about our respective church experiences and what we hope for from a merged and renewed congregation.
Our second innovation will be an early Easter morning service on the lawn at Levittown Church. We will gather at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 16 to celebrate the events of that long-ago Easter dawn when the world was changed forever. (If the weather is bad, we will go inside.) This will be an act of public worship that will demonstrate to one and all the promise of our new life together in Christ. There will be a breakfast following worship, and many of you I’m hoping will stay to attend the 10 a.m. service, also at Levittown.
