Easter Events

The Katonah United Methodist Church is planning several special events for the Lenten and Easter season. All are welcome to attend. Bring your friends!

On Palm Sunday, April 13, at 9:30 am, Katonah United Methodist Church will join the other churches of Katonah gathering at the old train station (now Pepino’s Restaurant) for the annual ecumenical blessing of the palms and procession through the village.

On Maundy Thursday, April 17, at 6:30 pm, the church, joined by Mt. Kisco United Methodist Church, will hold its annual Agape Meal (Love Feast) and Service of the Shadows commemorating the Last Supper and Jesus Passion. Your experience of the joy of the resurrection will be deeper and more meaningful if you attend this interactive service. The first part of the service is a convivial potluck supper of simple finger foods, i.e., fruit, cheese, dips, crackers, and bread. Beverages are provided. It’s a festive time of fellowship. After the supper, we enact a symbolic hand washing and move into the dramatic telling of the Passion story by candlelight.

On Good Friday, April 18, at 12 pm, there will be a joint service at Mt. Kisco United Methodist Church, 300 E. Main Street, Mt. Kisco.

The annual Easter Sunrise Service will be held Sunday, April 20, at 6:30 am at the south end of the Cross River Dam. Dress warmly.

On Sunday, April 20, the joyous Easter Service at 10 am in the church sanctuary will feature special music and musicians. Violinist Lucie Gelinas will join music director Keith Burton in accompanying the church choir’s stirring musical celebration of Easter. A special brunch will be served after the service. Please sign up to bring something to share.

Help decorate the cross and bear witness to God’s power and love to our community. All attending the Easter Service are encouraged to bring fresh, cut flowers to hang on the cross standing outside on the church lawn. The flowers symbolically transform the cross, an instrument of suffering, humiliation, and death, into a symbol of resurrection, love, and victory. Flowers like daffodils, tulips, and daisies from your garden or the super market are perfect.2006-177_1
