Welcome to Castro Valley UMC!
April 2—Palm/Passion Sunday (Communion Sunday)
9:00 am Worship on Zoom
10:00 am Grand processional with the children waving palms. The congregation will be singing Hosannas in remembrance of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The music will reflect the joy and triumph of the entry into Jerusalem but soon will take on a more somber tone as we hear of the betrayal, arrest, and trial of Jesus.
11:00 am Fellowship and Children’s Easter egg coloring in Fellowship Hall.
April 7—Good Friday
7:00 pm Good Friday service in the Sanctuary with Taizé singing. You may walk the Stations of the Cross which commemorates the stages of Jesus’ final hours on earth as he takes the long journey to Golgotha. Please leave the Sanctuary in silence and use Saturday as a day of rest.
April 9—Easter Sunday
10:00 am Worship in the Sanctuary, District Superintendent, Rev. Staci Current Preaching
