Good Palm Sunday Morning! As we begin Holy Week, I invite our parishioners and all others who wish to participate in this Sunday’s sermon and abbreviated service to view my YouTube channel. Here the Word and begin a week of reflection of our Lord’s journey to the cross.
There’s still time left to order your Memorial Easter Lilies for the church. Please see or call Reverend Greg Bennett (904-210-8042) by Palm Sunday with your order. Each lily is $8.00 and you make take your lily home to enjoy after Easter service. Please make checks payable to Resurrection Anglican Church.
We love having a church filled with the sights and scents of spring and look forward to beautiful flowers on Easter morning!
Holy Week is fast approaching and it’s a bit earlier this year. Here’s the schedule for worship at Resurrection Anglican Church. We hope many will join us, especially for Easter Sunday. We’ll be having a egg hunt for the kids, and a delicious Easter Luncheon immediately following the service. All are welcome!
Perhaps for young and old alike, the most anticipated season in the year is Christmas. With festive lights, gifts to give and receive, and the gathering of family and friends, there’s much so look forward to. However, in the Christian church Advent signals a period of profound contemplation.
During the four weeks of Advent we recognize and rejoice in the coming of our Lord. But, for the faithful, it’s so much more than that. We see not only Christ’s arrival, but the completion of His earthly ministry. We ponder the great sacrifice that our Savior, Jesus Christ, made for us by coming to earth as an infant. He lived a perfect life, died a sacrificial death, and rose from the dead for us. He saved us from our sins, and because of His great love, we can have life eternal. Now that’s really a reason to anticipate Christmas!
Resurrection Anglican has been greened and we’re ready to greet one and all who would love to worship with us. Today we marked Advent 1, and we did so by lighting the first cancle. Join us each Sunday right up through Christmas as we light a new taper. Our communion service begins at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday. Homemade soup, bread, and fellowship follows each service during Advent. On Christmas Eve we’ll have our regular service in the morning and we’ll sing Lessons and Carols at 6:30 pm with dessert to follow.
The first candle to be lit is the Prophecy Cancle or the Candle of Hope. It reminds us that God is ever faithful and keeps His promises. All hope comes from God!
Our beautiful tree is up and gleaming in many colorful and symbolic ornaments.
We welcome you to come and worship with us each and every Sunday, rejoicing in the birth of the Christ child!
Happy Easter! Our Lord and Savior has risen…he has risen indeed! At Resurrection Anglican we celebrate Easter both in worship, and with a wonderful luncheon and egg hunt. We packed the church, sang beautiful hymns, and laid the abundant spread that has become our Easter tradition. As the children hunted for brightly colored eggs, the adults feasted on ham, veggies, and awesome desserts, all under our big white tent out in the gorgeous weather.
We are so blessed to have such a close-knit and friendly congregation, and we’re hopeful our visitors enjoyed the day as much as our regular parishioners did. We thank God for the families that were with us, the hands that prepared the food, and the volunteers who always make these fellowship celebrations possible.
Blessings to you all…
