First Congregational Church of Rochester, 11 Constitution Way in Rochester, is pleased to announce its Holy Week schedule. We invite you to come and worship with us. All gatherings will also be live streamed on our website, www.rochestercongregational.com.
April 2 at 10:00 am – Palm Sunday. Our pastor, Rev. Colby Olson, will challenge us to “Taste and See” that the Lord is good. Palms will be distributed after the worship gathering.
April 6 at 7:00 pm – Maundy Thursday. This somber service includes Communion, Scripture reading and the gradual extinguishing of lights in the Sanctuary to impress upon the hearts of believers the awful consequences of sin and the magnitude of the Savior’s sacrifice. Since this is such a solemn service, we ask that attendees enter and exit in silence.
April 7 at 7:00 pm – Good Friday. This Good Friday gathering will include Communion and a special message called “The Tombs Broke Open.”
April 9 – Resurrection Sunday. Our sunrise gathering begins at 7:30 am on the Church Green and will be followed by a free Easter breakfast in our Fellowship Hall. An Easter worship gathering will be held in the Sanctuary at 10:00 am during which we will celebrate that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is alive. So that we can adequately prepare for the free breakfast, we ask that you call the church office at 508-763-4314 by April 2 to let us know you’re coming.
