Easter Living Cross


The Easter Living Cross is something new that First Church will be participating in on Easter Sunday, March 27.


The Music & Worship Commission is having a cross made and it will be covered with chicken wire. The cross will be placed on the chancel Easter Sunday. Everyone is invited to bring a living flower, blooming leaf branch – forsythia, dogwood, etc., to church with them. As we begin our worship service, bring it to the front of the sanctuary and place it onto the cross. As individuals and families begin to place their offering on the cross we will all watch it become alive as a symbol of Jesus’ resurrection and new life.


There will be people to assist you if you can’t reach the top of the cross or if you have difficulty with the steps. The Music & Worship Commission members will have flowers available if someone forgets theirs. Please invite your family and friends to attend worship and to bring a flower with them to add to the majesty of this cross.


The Easter Living Cross is a gathering place for family pictures following worship then it will be moved outside for all who pass by the church to see that we are an “alive” congregation!
