Easter Week 2018 Events at Redeemer

Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Charleston, SC

Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Charleston, SC

EASTER WEEK EVENTS: Redeemer has several events planned for Holy Week, so mark your calendars and celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection with us!

  • Palm Sunday, March 25 | Galatians One-Man Show @ 6 pm
    Our usual Christian-education classes for all ages are at 9:15 am. Our children’s classes will walk into the worship service waving palm branches at 10:30 am. Come back Sunday night at 6 where we’ll enjoy a special one-man presentation of Galatians by former Redeemer member Drew Archer of TheaTheos in our beautiful Fellowship Hall.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, March 27, 28 | Seder @ 6 pm
    The Seder is a traditional Jewish Passover meal. We ask the same question this celebration has asked for centuries, “Why is this night different?” God commanded his people–prone to forgetfulness–to remember at the first of every year His deliverance from oppression and bondage under Pharaoh into the freedom of His ways. Likewise, we must worship by commemorating what God has done to free us from slavery to sin and futility in death by drawing us near through life in Christ.
    We’ll start with a potluck supper first, so bring food to share. The church will provide the Seder nibbles and grape juice for the children, and we’re asking everyone to bring bottles of red wine (and a wine key/opener) and wine glasses for the Seder portion. Older children (K5 and up) are encouraged to take part in the Seder with the adults.
    After the potluck supper, our 3- and 4-year-olds will have their own special Seder celebration downstairs in the Redeemer Kids room, and we’ll offer childcare for kids two and under in our nurseries downstairs.
    We’ve scheduled two separate nights for our popular Seder Passover meal to help accommodate everyone who wants to participate. We’re asking our Tuesday community groups to attend on Tuesday, and our Wednesday community groups to attend on Wednesday.
    Everyone else can pick the day that works best for them, but we need everyone to RSVP using this form to reserve your spot for the night you’d like to attend.
  • Friday, March 30 | Good Friday Service @ 7 pm
    This somber, meditative service will focus on Jesus and the cross. We will offer childcare for children under 4 years of age.
  • Easter Sunday, April 1 | Easter Breakfast @ 9:15 am
    Join our church family on Easter Sunday in the Fellowship Hall for a potluck breakfast. Bring breakfast dishes to share! After a quick breakfast, our preschool and elementary children will go downstairs to their classrooms for Easter activities at 9:45.
    This year the kids will help decorate a cross displayed outside in the courtyard, so help your children pick flowers from your yard to bring and display in the cross at Redeemer.
    To help us decorate the sanctuary for our Easter morning worship service, please bring Easter lilies if you’re able. Our worship service will begin at our usual time of 10:30 am. If you’re new, check out information about our worship service here–including parking!
