|The First Parish Church in Weston invites all to Sunday morning worship on March 29, at 10:30 am, when The Rev. Dr. Thomas D. Wintle will lead this Family Palm/Passion Sunday worship service. Childcare for infants and toddlers will be available starting at 10:15 and older children may gather in Sears Chapel at 10:15 am to organize for the palm processional into the Sanctuary. After the children leave for their church school classes, Rev. Wintle will speak on “Were You There? And Who Were You?” The Senior Choir will present “Crucifixus” by Antonio Lotti and “Lift up your heads, ye gates” by Andreas Hammerschmidt.|
After worship, artist Maggie Carberry will be in The Rines Gallery at First Parish to meet and greet those taking in her exhibit of 2D and 3D works, called “Urban Escapes.” These fascinating works combine printmaking, bright colors and architectural elements to evoke a sense of day-dreaming.
On Maundy Thursday, April 2, we will have a service of communion in the Sears Chapel, beginning at 7:00 pm. This service commemorates Jesus’ last supper with his disciples.
On Good Friday, April 3, Rev. Wintle and Bristol Huffman will lead a service of Tenebrae beginning at 7:00 pm in Sears Chapel. “Tenebrae” means “darkness.” This moving service includes the progressive extinguishing of candles to illustrate the Passion story.
Then, on Easter Sunday, April 5, First Parish will have two services at 9:30 am and 11:15 am. The first service will have some specific child-friendly elements, though children are welcome at both services. The Children’s and Senior Choirs will sing at both services. Our annual Easter egg hunt will take place between the two worship services.
The church is wheel-chair accessible and hearing-assist devices are available. We hope you’ll join us for all or some of our Easter season services!
