Easter Sunday

At Randolph Heights this Easter, we are reviving an old tradition and continuing a newer one. The old tradition is to offer a breakfast for all who come, typically something like pancakes and eggs.  Our brothers and sisters from Glorious Triumphant Church will be joining us, and probably some people from the neighborhood, too.

Our newer tradition is to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus by covering the cross with flowers on Easter Sunday. Everyone who comes has the opportunity to take a flower or two and affix them to the cross.  The plain wooden cross of crucifixion becomes the beautiful, flower-covered cross of resurrection.  It’s a wonderful blend of the literal and the symbolic, enriching our experience and reminding us of the joy of the resurrection and the promise it holds: true liberation from sin and death.

Join us for breakfast and flowering the cross Sunday morning, April 20th. Breakfast is scheduled for 8:30 and our service begins at 10:30.

Maundy Thursday Supper & Service

This week, between Palm Sunday and Easter, is a significant week for Christians.   At Randolph Heights, we celebrate the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday with a simple meal and service.  It was at this meal that Jesus gave his disciples bread and wine in remembrance of him and his sacrifice yet to come, but also gave them a new command (mandatum in Latin, hence the name maundy):

 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
John 13:34

This year, our meal begins at 6:00 Thursday (April 17th) with the service to follow.  All are welcome to join us; please come as you are.
