Greetings, CHLC family and friends!

Welcome to Holy Week. After a very meaningful Palm/Passion Sunday service we are on to Maundy Thursday and Good Friday as we prepare for our Resurrection celebration on Easter Sunday.

I want to remind you that the Maundy Thursday Agape Meal service is in the parish hall at 6:00 p.m. It will involve a simple meal, message and Holy Communion. Afterward, we will recess into the sanctuary to strip the altar while Psalm 88 is sung.

The Good Friday service is at North Community Lutheran Church on Morse Road at 7:30 p.m. This will be our final time to worship with our brothers and sisters there before they close their doors June 2. The service will feature a combined choir, readings and the meaningful parts of the Good Friday Liturgy, like the Bidding Prayers, Solemn Reproaches and adoration of the cross.

Easter Breakfast is served continuously from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall.
Children's activities begin at 9:15, and the egg hunt will be around 9:30. It looks to be a beautiful morning weather-wise, so come out to enjoy the day!!
Worship is at 10:00. Make sure you bring a couple of flowers to transform the old ugly cross into a thing of beauty and life!!

Our community meal for April will be on Monday, April 22 at 6:00 p.m. Come out for a time of food and fellowship with members of our congregation and community!

Finally, this Saturday is our monthly Men's Bible Study at Panera Breaad at 9:00 a.m.

I will see you in worship!!
Blessed Holy Week to all.
