Then, at 10:30 am, join us for Resurrection Worship in the Plymouth Sanctuary, featuring sermon by Dr. Brown and music by Plymouth Chancel Choir, Soul Choir, Plymouth Ringers, Brass quintet, Organ and Timpani.
Celebration of Life, begins immediately after worship in Freeway Park until 3 pm, with an egg hunt, games, live music and more fun for all ages. We often gather at rallies and marches; this day we gather to celebrate with joy!
Preparing for Easter Sunday, Celebration of Life event in Freeway Park following morning worship, we invite a team of volunteers to help plan and prepare for, and draw others into leading event activities. We would like to have many volunteers to facilitate activities, offer hospitality and welcome, host booths/displays/games and be present for other support needs. If you can be part of this team, please contact Brandon Burns in the church office, BBurns@PlymouthChurchSeattle.org, to share your interest.
Celebration of Life festivities include: bounce house, face painting, bean bag toss, ring toss, Easter egg hunt (2 hunts for different ages), craft table, Simple Church table (sign up and photos), blessing of the animals, food, fun and fellowship! Live music provided by Brian Waite with songs for kids of all ages and Super Krewe brass band.
Food booths serving tamales from La Panadería will be set up in the park and at Plymouth. Siblings Oscar and Felicitas started La Panadería to make a better life for themselves and their families and provide delicious, all-natural, fresh and locally-sourced tamales and baked goods in Seattle. Following traditional recipes, Oscar and Felicitas make everything by hand. Food booth is the only area of the event where people will pay (credit and debit accepted).
