April Sunday Worship Calendar
Family Easter Sunday, April 5: Free At Last
On the night before the crucifixion Jesus gathered with his disciples around the Passover table. He told them all that which would soon occur. They didn’t want to hear it, especially the part about their responsibility to embrace his work and carry it on. What Christians call “the Passion,” the story of the capture, death, and resurrection of Jesus bears some powerful parallels with the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the way in which millions have taken up his ministry. The whole church family will gather with the ministers to practice resurrection.

On Family Sundays, children experience the entire worship service together with their families in the Sanctuary. A children’s message and activity books related to the stories and sermon help children to engage in the experience of worship. Regular religious education programming does not take place on Family Sundays; however, the nursery is open for children under five years of age.

April 19: The Cost of Freedom — Rob and Janne Eller-Isaacs
Religious liberals are known for our commitment to intellectual freedom, but freedom comes in stages. Without freedom from the linked oppressions of race and class, intellectual freedom seems an almost trivial aspiration. Join Rob and Janne Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Drew Ross as they wrestle with the cost of freedom.

April 26: I Call This Church Free — Rob Eller-Isaacs
What does it mean to be a free church? What do we mean when we claim to have a free pulpit? As our ninth graders Come of Age, Rob Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Jen Niemela invite youth in spiritual formation to summon the courage it takes to seek and speak the truth.
