Holy Week & Easter Services

Please join us during this Easter week for services we will share with the Glendale Church.

Good Friday: Everyone is invited to participate in a Good Friday Communion Service at 7:00 PM hosted by the Glendale New Church congregation.  This will be our communion service for the Easter holiday, so please join us for the Holy Supper sacrament and the wrap up of Lent.  Rev. Clark Echols will be leading the service.

Easter Sunday: 

  • Family Pancake Breakfast starts at 9:00 AMSee the attached flyer. We would like to get a count just so we set up the right number of tables.  Email newchurchofmontgomery.org to RSVP.
    • Breakfast fare provided by the church is pancakes, sausage and bacon, OJ, coffee and tea.  If anyone is moved to bring any additional brunch-like contributions, these are welcome but not necessary.
    • For the “kids” Pete will try out the “art” pancakes he has been practicing.
    • The Children’s Easter Egg Hunt has been moved to after the service to avoid rushing breakfast or delaying the worship service.
  • Worship begins at 10:30 AM.
    • It will begin with converting the chancel from the Spartan Lenten décor to the festive Easter décor, and will include bringing light and color and flowers to the altar.  Our guest minister will be Rev. Terry Schnarr, who will be visiting from Kitchener, Ontario where he has a pastoral counseling ministry with the Church of the Good Shepherd.
    • We will also have live piano and violin music for the service, so do your vocal warm-ups!
    • After the initial festivities and candle-lighting, the children will be dismissed for Sunday School and will rejoin us at the end of the service.
