Easter Sunday April 5, 2015
There will be a 8AM “sunrise” service on Easter Sunday, April 5th, at Recreation Park, Beethoven Street Binghamton, New York, at the bandstand, Joyful Noise will provide the music and a short sermon will be included within the service. We will then have refreshments back at the church, prior to our traditional Easter Service at 10AM. ( Easter Sunrise Service will be held at FCC 30 Main Street Binghamton, New York if the weather is uncooperative).
This year is one of those years where Holy Week for Christians coincides with Passover for Jews ( Passover begins at sundown on Good Friday, April 3rd). In light of this, we will be hosting a (mostly) traditional Seder dinner on Maundy Thursday, April 2nd at 6:30PM. The tradition at FCC over the last several years has been to have a Tenebrae and Communion Service on Maundy Thursday, but this year we will be celebrating Passover in much the same way that Jesus did with his disciples when they were observing Passover that later became know as the Last Supper.
This will be coordinated by Leslie and Pastors Art and Janet. We invite you to join us for Seder dinner and service in the Fellowship Hall. All you need to do is sign up as guests on the hallway invite so we know how many people to serve. Of course, if you have ever made matzoh ball soup or a good brisket, let us know!
This event has nearly reached capacity, so this event is only open to church members and regular attendees at this time.
