Easter Brunch – 9:45 am

Join us for a potluck Easter Brunch at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall on Easter Sunday! Beverages will be provided; please bring a breakfast dish to share (quiche, muffins, fruit, etc.). Savory breakfast dishes are greatly appreciated. Please remember to label your dishes and serving spoons with your name if you’d like to have them back, and pick them up following the brunch. If your contribution contains allergens or is suitable for those with special dietary needs, please add labels such as “gluten free,” “contains peanuts/tree nuts,” or “vegetarian.”

Seating will also be available in the garden for those who prefer to eat outdoors.

All are welcome!

Easter Egg Hunt – 10:15 am

All children are invited to join us on the front lawn at 10:15 am for an Easter Egg hunt. Don’t forget to bring a basket to collect your eggs!

Flowering the Cross

Last year’s flower cross was so lovely that we decided to do it again! This year, the cross will already have flowers on it and be outside all morning (great for your Easter Sunday family photos). If you’d like to bring more flowers from home to add to it, please do! We will not have extra flowers available.

Gifts of Beauty and Bounty

It is the UPC tradition at Easter to honor and remember the people in our lives through Easter Gifts of Beauty and Bounty. Your gift can be used to purchase a lily which will be placed in the chancel, or as a contribution to the Inter-Faith Council for Social Services to support our neighbors in need. (You can also choose to do both with your gift!) The names of those honored and remembered with these gifts will be in the Sunday Worship Bulletin on April 17.

All forms (online and paper) must be received by Friday, April 8.

Easter Offering

It is our tradition for Easter to collect an offering for One Great Hour of Sharing, which supports several PCUSA initiatives to help our neighbors in need. This year, our offering will be fully designated to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and their Ukranian relief fund. To give, click the button below, or write a check to UPC with “One Great Hour of Sharing” in the memo line.
