Jesus is Coming, Pave the Way With Branches

Join us for our Palm Sunday worship and celebration service. We at First Congregational of Elmhurst lift up the importance of Palm Sunday especially since it is the beginning of Jesus’ journey through Holy Week.

In the spirit of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem, we invite all children to join us in our Palm Parade which takes place at the beginning of our 10:00 a.m. worship hour.

Children of all ages will kick off our worship with the parade and handing out palm branches and adorning our communion table.

We hope you will join us for this inspirational worship service.

“Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”

Good Friday Service

APRIL 7, 2023
7 PM

On Good Friday, we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Coming together and remembering this act of love is the centerpiece of Holy Week.

Please accept this invitation to be a part of our Good Friday evening service.

Together let us stand at the foot of the cross and await the resurrection.

Easter is a festive and hopeful reminder to all people that God makes all things new through Jesus. We hope you will let us be a part of your Easter celebration.

Our Easter morning service at 10:00 AM includes spirit moving music and an uplifting morning message you will be able to identify with.

Children’s Sunday School will be carrying out its annual Easter party with biblical storytelling, crafts, egg decorating, games and much more.

Immediately after the service, you can enjoy our Easter bake sale. Delicious homemade baked goods are a wonderful treat to bring to gatherings, not to mention a great ministry donation.

We look forward to celebrating this special morning with you and your family.
