Holy Week Celebrations began Palm Sunday at Central Christian Church with the procession of Palms at the 11 a.m. service. Rev. Cara Gilger delivered the message "We Make the Path by Walking."
Morning worship was followed by the traditional Palm Sunday luncheon in the church fellowship hall. A classic spring-type menu featuring ham and customary sides was served along with a beautiful array of desserts.
The Maundy Thursday service, “Last Supper, Last Words” will be at 6:30 p.m. on April 18 in the sanctuary.
Sunday morning, Central will participate in the Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. at White Rock Lake T.P. Hill. Central Pastor, Rev. Dr. Ken Crawford, will serve at the communion table following the service.
At 9 a.m. in Central Community Dog Park, located behind the church, Tyson Woods will lead Easter Service in the dog park. This is a special service for people and their dogs to spend time together in nature as people sing and give thanks while their dogs run about doing what dogs do. The rustic park is shaded by mature Live Oaks and there is plenty of parking and seating. Dress is casual and coffee and do nuts will be served.
A light brunch will be served in Central’s fellowship hall at 10 a.m. for those attending Sunday morning’s 11 a.m. Easter service in the sanctuary. During this time, children will have the opportunity to hunt Easter Eggs and play on the sprawling Bois d'Arc tree (something kid's love to do) on the church’s front lawn.
Rev. Ken Crawford will deliver the Easter sermon "Clueless: The Apostles All Failed to Recognize the Truth of the Resurrection."
Everyone is invited to join Central at any or all the Holy Week Services. Beautiful weather is predicted for Sunday, adding to the enjoyment of the outdoor activities. There is plenty of parking and plenty of seating. All are welcome!
