The Great Vigil of Easter (on-site and online)

Saturday, April 8, 2023 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
ROOM: Worship Space, 345 South 312th Street, Federal Way, Washington 98003

Service leaflet is available on our homepage.

At 8:00 p.m., we gather outside the church. (Bring a bell, drum, or noisemaker to use at the time of the proclamation of Easter.) This is the night. We light the new Paschal flame. By candlelight, we hear the ancient tales of God’s works of salvation. We come to the water to renew the vows of our baptism. We proclaim Easter! And then all are invited to the table, old and young, sinners and saints, to share in the eternal meal of the Risen Christ. If you don’t believe but want to ... if you do believe but want to experience ... if you have experienced and want to share ... bring the whole family. Bring kids and little ones in pajamas. Bring parents. Bring friends. Bring anyone and everyone who is in need of Good News!
