April 15 | Easter Egg Hunt
In cooperation with our partners the Meridian Hills Community Preschool and Kindergarten, we will host an Easter Egg hunt for the children on our front lawn. Bring your children or grandchildren and join the festivities at 10:30 a.m.
April 16 | Easter Sunday
Our 11 a.m. service features our choir and the ‘Da Musica Brass Quintet’. Dr. Michael Montgomery leads our reflections on ‘Practicing for the Resurrection’. An Easter celebration! Our 5:30 p.m. service continues the celebration by reflecting on how we have experienced Easter moments in our lives. How often have you been resurrected!
April 23 | Environmental Sabbath
The day after Earth Day is a wonderful day to remember that ‘the earth belongs to God’ and we are God’s stewards. Members of First Congregational will reflect on what this means with updates on our solar energy project! This will be the theme of both the 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. services, with our bell choir providing an anthem at the traditional worship service.
Jewish Christian Relations in May
Ever since the election there has been a spate of threatened and actual hate crimes against our Jewish (and other minority religions) neighbors.
Rev. Montgomery launches our discussions with a sermon on ‘Jesus as a Jew’ on April 30, to be followed by 7 p.m. programs (with ‘heavy noshing’ at 6:30 p.m.) on Sunday, May 7; Wednesday, May 17 and Sunday, May 21 by Lindsey Mintz from the Jewish Community Relations Council of Indianapolis. Her programs will focus on Anti-Semitism in America, the ‘Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’ movement as applied against Israel and productive ways to work for peace in Israel/Palestine.
