Virtual Worship, Sunday, April 18th, 2021

Join us for virtual worship this weekend, as we celebrate the 3rd Sunday of Easter. For the next three weeks, we are focusing on experiencing the resurrection in everyday life: at work, among friends, and over meals. This weekend, we focus on experiencing the resurrection in the midst of our work, however we define that. Pastor Jeff preaches from Matthew 28:1-10, where the faithful women were “going to work” early that Sunday morning as they visited the tomb.

Virtual Worship, Sunday, April 11, 2021

Join us for virtual worship this weekend, as we celebrate “Holy Humor Sunday” at fpcw. It’s an ancient Christian tradition that recognizes the “Easter laugh” (risus paschalis), the supreme joke, if you will, that God played on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead on Easter morning.

The tradition goes way back to the early church, with the faithful gathering for picnics and parties as they celebrated “days of joy and laughter” in the week after Easter. Priests would include amusing stories and jokes in their sermons in an attempt to make the faithful laugh. After the service, people would play practical jokes on one another and tell funny stories. In recent years, more and more churches are discovering the wisdom of celebrating the second Sunday of Easter as “Holy Humor Sunday.”

So today’s worship service is a bit different. My prayer is that you’ll experience God through it and have a few belly laughs as we revel together in the good news of the resurrection. And please do let us know what you think! We’d love for this to become an annual tradition at fpcw.
