With spring time just around the corner, Holy Week preparations are in full swing at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale. Everyone in the community is invited to grow in faith and fellowship by participating in as many opportunities as possible during the season of Lent. Beginning with Palm Sunday on March 28th and concluding with Easter Sunday on April 4, 2021, Faith Will Come Alive during Holy Week at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale!
“Each spring we offer several special opportunities for our members, friends and guests to truly bring the Easter story to life,” said Rev. Dr. Patrick Wrisley, Senior Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale. “Our annual Holy Week opportunities are a time of reflection and spiritual growth, and for those in attendance they offer a powerful reminder of the selflessness displayed by our Lord on this day.”
Highlights of this year’s Holy Week include a Labyrinth Walk – a time of solace and contemplative prayer; a Service of Light and Celebration of the Lord’s Supper on Maundy-Thursday; a solemn reflective Good Friday noon service; and two services to celebrate the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday.
The Easter Sunday celebration on April 4, 2021 will begin at 8 a.m. with a special sunrise service in Fort Lauderdale’s picturesque Colee Hammock Park (1500 Brickell Drive, Fort Lauderdale). This will be followed by traditional worship at 11:00 a.m. in Sanctuary.
