If you hang around with us during springtime, you’ll notice that Easter is kind of a big deal for Lutherans.
Easter falls this year on April 21, but for us and other liturgical Christians, it doesn’t end there: it’s a FIFTY DAY FESTIVAL.
We’ve got lots of opportunity to celebrate!
Kicking off the Party: Easter Vigil, April 20, 7PM
For the ancients and for many religious folks today, festivals begin at sundown on the day before, as sundown signaled for our ancestors the end of a day and the beginning of a new one.
That’s why we start celebrating Easter on Saturday night!
Join us for this one-of-a-kind celebration of fire, storytelling, laughter, bread and wine — and wine & sweets! Children are especially welcome at this service, but we welcome folks of all ages to come and kick off our favorite season with us.
Easter Sunday: April 21, 10:15AM
Easter Sunday is typically our largest service of the whole year, as we gather with friends and family from near and far to celebrate the biggest day in Christianity.
Beer & Hymns: April 29, 6PM
It’s our birthday! We started Pioneer Valley Beer & Hymns two years ago in May. Come celebrate with us at Sok’s Bar (30 Bridge Street in South Hadley Falls). This event is all it says it is, and nothing more: we drink beer (or whatever we want — alcoholic or non-alcoholic), we sing hymns, we laugh, we have fun.
Come enjoy the singing and the good company!
Adult Education: Genesis, Every Sunday in April and May EXCEPT Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, 9AM
Join us as we explore the first book of the Bible together in an informal, low-pressure setting. No prior biblical knowledge is required, and each sessions stands alone.
Our Savior’s Works: Fine Arts Show, Pentecost Weekend
(June 8, 5PM-8PM and June 9, 11:30AM – 3PM)
This year, we’re celebrating Pentecost by displaying how God’s Spirit of creativity has inspired our people! Come see their good work and meet the artists themselves.
Wine and refreshments will be served.
