*Ash Wednesday service at Cana Lutheran
MAUNDY THURSDAY DINNER/SERVICE
April 18th at 6:15pm
Join us for a special evening of dinner and worship (combined.) On Maundy Thursday we retell the story of Jesus’ last night including The Last Supper, His arrest in Gethsemane, the denial and betrayal of his disciples. The service that night entitled “Voices from the Margins” features dramatic readings from some of the lesser known characters in the passion narrative (e.g. the servant girl who recognized Peter, the man set free instead of Jesus (Barabbas), the Roman Centurion at the cross). All of these will be read by members of the Greenfield family. Please remember to arrive for the dinner as the readings and communion are during the meal.
GOOD FRIDAY ECUMENICAL SERVICE
April 19th at 12:00pm
Join us for a one hour service at noon on April 19 as we dramatically retell the story of Jesus’s final hours, focusing primarily on his last words on the cross. Members of Cana Lutheran, Drayton Avenue Presbyterian and friends from the community will join us for this holy day. An ecumenical choir will help lead us in worship.
April 21st 8:45am & 11:00am services: Brunch at 10:00am
Our celebration of the Resurrection begins on April 21 at 8:45 a.m. with our Praise service.
The service features our Praise Team and communion in the round. Note the early starting time for the service, which will allow plenty of time to make it to the Easter brunch, beginning immediately afterward (about 10:00 a.m.) The 11:00 service will serve Holy Communion. Hope you all can join us!
EASTER BRUNCH VOLUNTEERS
We are looking for volunteers to help with the Easter Breakfast, which will be held between services on Easter morning, April 21, in Fellowship Hall. Egg casserole bakers, servers and clean up crew are needed.
If you are able to help, please contact Nancy Youngerman jyoungerman1359<at>wowway.com

Community Easter Egg Hunt: April 20th, 10:30 am
Hope you’ve marked your calendars to join us for our annual Easter Egg Hunt at Greenfield where dozens of kids from toddlers to 5th graders will scamper in and out of the church in a madcap search for candy-filled eggs. Everyone, kids and adults alike, has the
opportunity to get their picture taken with the “Bunny” and partake of yummy refreshments. No one leaves without a raffle prize or a smile on their festively face-painted face. For this much fun, many volunteers are needed to help with:
- Providing refreshments
- Face painting
- Helping with registration
- Overseeing egg hunts
Baskets have been placed in both vestibules to collect much-needed candy donations; anything from jelly beans and chocolate eggs to bite-sized candy bars that will fit into small plastic eggs. Donations of anything from stuffed animals and kid-suitable videos to Legos and
hula hoops that we can raffle would also be appreciated. Come, join the fun, and help us make this our most successful Egg Hunt ever! Please contact Deb Basierbe if you can help.
Be part of a worship team!

Greenfield Presbyterian cares deeply about families. We want children to know and love Jesus, and we believe that there are many ways to achieve this: arts and crafts; hearing Bible stories; singing songs and playing games. Moreover, we want children to feel like they belong, not only in our building, but as important members of a community that cares about them and the world in which they live, both near and far.
