Saturday, April 19th
11 p.m. -12 a.m. (CT)

Join us for a liturgical experiment as we fuse the ancient tradition of the first service of celebration of Christ’s Resurrection with modern online communication. Grab a candle and a dish of water as we participate in an online Easter Vigil by lighting the Christ candle, remembering our baptisms, and praying together as we usher into Easter morning.
