Serving as acolytes and ushers for the Easter Sunday service were Luke Doreck and Brannon Woelfel. In celebration of the risen Christ, the sanctuary cross was covered in colorful flowers and placed on the front Communion table. During the Time for Young Disciples, children recalled the chain of events in Holy Week by using symbols to represent the final days of Christ on earth.
Before the service, the congregation gathered for breakfast in the newly-renovated fellowship hall, and the children of the church enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and games for prizes, which was organized by Stacie Woelfel.
