One of the Easter traditions that we enjoy at First Christian every year, is covering a cross with flowers. Each year on Easter Resurrection morning, we invite our church family and community friends to bring flowers to cover a large frame of the cross which is set up in our church Gathering Area . (There will be several people to help you, if you decide to bring flowers and need help.)
Flowers can be brought to the church as early as 8:30 am on Easter Sunday morning so they can be placed on the cross before worship begins. The cross will then be displayed during our worship service at 10 am, and then the cross with its flowers will be placed on the front steps of the church that it might serve as an inspiration to those who drive by and see it throughout the week.
All are invited to worship with us each Sunday @ 10 AM. Dan’s 2021 sermon series leading up to Easter is called “Jesus Last Days” with a special emphasis on our Lord’s perfect example in dealing with the stress and anxiety of his last week and how we too might use his example as we deal with the pressure and stress of life.
