Button_CalendarOur church home
is a place of affirming sanctuary, where many find hospitality and hope, even redemption and peace. Worship here is always about thanksgiving and overflowing with themes of God’s grace, God’s call to justice, and our responsibility to one another as God’s children.

We experience joy, laughter, and delight in moments of shared liturgical celebration, as we experience the awe of God’s presence among us in moments of ministry that include healing prayers, outreach, and pastoral care with the people around us. We continue to discern our ministry, as our hearts are continually tuned to sing God’s praise.

Holy Week Activities: 2015

Holy Week is always a deeply meaningful time at Christ Church and we hope that you and your family will be a part of as many of the services as you can. Each evening from Monday, March 30, to Saturday, April 4, there are services that reveal different aspects of Jesus’ journey towards the cross in interactive and beautiful ways. There are also several services and events that are particularly geared towards families with children. From Walking the Way with Jesus on Good Friday, April 3, to the Easter Egg Hunt, pizza dinner and Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday, April 4, there are many meaningful and rewarding ways to be involved. As we move closer to Holy Week, please consider engaging with the community as follows:

**Eggs – bring in a dozen hardboiled eggs during Holy Week to dye on Good Friday. Recipe follows!
**Actors – We need some grown up “actors” to help with the Good Friday Walking the Way service (rehearsal on Palm Sunday, no experience or skill necessary)
**Set-up – both for egg dyeing on Friday and dinner on Saturday
**Coin Boxes – If you have been collecting for the Outdoor Church with a coin box, be sure to bring in your boxes over Holy Week, so that they can be a part of the offering on Easter Morning! And if you still need a box please send a text message to Suzanne Culhane: sculhane@cccambridge.org.

2) Add Eggs to a large, empty pot
3) Add enough cold water to cover by at least an inch
4) Add 1 Tablespoon vinegar
5) Put on stove and bring to a boil
6) Once water is at a boil, turn off heat and cover with a tight lid
7) Let stand for 15 minutes
8) Drain and rinse eggs with cold water
