Easter Message from the Minister

Greetings to you as we near the end of our Faith on the Move Lenten journey and prepare for Holy Week and Easter Sunday.

Once again this year the Red Deer ministerial group we are associated with (PLURA – Presby- terian, Lutheran, United Church, Roman Catholic, and Anglican) is offering a short service each day, Monday to Thursday during Holy Week. I am collaborating with Leila Currie and Amy Mueller, the ministry team at Gaetz Memorial United, to offer the service for Monday, March 29. Because we are not able to offer these services in person, they will all be pre-recorded and offered online. Watch for the links.

At Sunnybrook we will be offering our Good Friday service by livestream at 10:30 a.m., but there will also be spots available in the sanctuary if you book ahead. This service, which includes special music and a dramatic reading, promises to be very moving and meaningful.

Of course our faith story does not end with death on the cross. The morning light of Easter Sunday brings a celebration of new life. Our long journey through Lent leads us to this moment and I look forward to the celebration with you.

Peace for the journey,
