Easter Week Activities
Maundy Thursday Communion Service
Our annual observance of Maundy Thursday will take place on April 18 at 7:30 p.m.,
in Fellowship Hall. This communion service relives the events that took place in the Upper Room on the night of Jesus’ arrest. Children are welcome to take part.
Good Friday Community Service
Good Friday falls on April 19. An afternoon service at Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church continues a longstanding tradition in our community. Instead of the three-hour service of previous years, this event now lasts from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Pastor Snyder and ministers from four other congregations will each share a five-minute sermon on the passion of Christ. A community “super choir” will sing.
Holy Saturday Prayer Vigil
The sanctuary will be open for prayer and meditation on Saturday, April 20, from 12:00 noon until 7:00 p.m. Prayer guides will be available in the Narthex. Please park in the kitchen parking lot (the handicap lot). Enter and exit the building only via the handicap door.
Easter Sunday — April 21
Our annual Easter breakfast and children’s Easter Egg Hunt takes place at 8:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome—bring nothing but your appetite!
The Egg Hunt is for preschool through second grade and takes place on the front lawn. Third and fourth graders will help the younger children hunt for eggs, and youth in fifth grade and up will hide the eggs.
Our Easter worship service follows at 9:30 a.m. with a joyful celebration of resurrection. Music is accompanied by Micah Wilkinson, 1st chair trumpeter with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The nursery will be open during the service. All children (preschool through 5th grade) will begin in the worship service. Following the children’s sermon, they will go to the first floor lounge (room 110) for our second annual Easter Game Fair.
