HOLY WEEK and EASTER SUNDAY

The most important events in history will be celebrated from Sunday, April 10th through Sunday, April 17.

Palm Sunday Service will be held on Sunday, April 10th, at 10:15 a.m. and will include the traditional procession with Palms and the Sacrament of Holy Communion (with First Holy Communion for the children who have been preparing to receive).

Maundy Thursday Service will be held at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, North Weissport, at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 14th. The order for corporate confession and forgiveness will open the service with the opportunity for those attending to receive the laying on of hands and a personal word of absolution. Holy Communion will be celebrated. The service concludes with the Stripping of the Altar as we remember Jesus’ betrayal and arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane.

The Passion and Death of Jesus will be the focus of our Good Friday Service at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 15th at Holy Trinity. We will hear and meditate on the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus from the Gospel of John.

The Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord will be celebrated on Easter Sunday, April 17th at 10:15 a.m. This Festival Service of Holy Communion will include special music from both the Choir and the Handbell Choir

SAVE THE DATE – Knoebel’s – June 5

SAVE THE DATE!  Our 2022 Church Picnic at Knoebel’s will be held on Sunday, June 5th. We are looking to determine our need for a bus to get our members and friends to the park. In the past we have rented a full-size school bus but, in recent years, we haven’t come close to filling it. Please contact the church office or sign the sign-up sheet at church to let us know if you want to ride the bus. We may be able to rent a smaller bus this year.

Community Yard Sale – May 7

Holy Trinity will be hosting an indoor yard sale in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday, May 7th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. In addition to folks in the community and in our church renting yard sale table space, the church will be selling our famous molasses tongue cookies and mini cheesecakes (just as we did at the Palmerton Community Festival back in September). We will also have hot dogs, snacks, and drinks for sale. Please call the church office to reserve yourself a table. We look forward to seeing you there.
