Our Easter services this year are planned according to the Western Christian calendar when Easter is remembered on March 31st. Here in Egypt, the majority of the Christians follow the Coptic Christian calendar in which Easter falls on May 5th.
So our Palm Friday (as we meet on Fridays here, not on Sunday, for our weekly worship services) is March 22. We plan for the children to open the service by carrying their palm branches and singing a celebration song.
On Good Friday, (Holy Friday) the youth group will present a human video – a drama related to the Easter message. Pastor John will also be preaching on this theme.
Easter Sunrise Service is planned for early Sunday morning on March 31. All are welcome. Please see the bulletin for more details.
