Easter Worship at Holy Spirit
6:30 am (at O.o. Denny Park)
8:00 am 9:30 am 11:00 am
Alleluia – Christ is risen! We celebrate Jesus’ resurrection this day, God’s final proclamation that death and pain will never have the last word. Worship this day begins with the sunrise service at 6:30am at O.O. Denny Park, followed by worship at HSLC at 8am, 9:30am, and 11am.
Nursery care is available at the 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 am service. More information about our nursery is available here.
If this will be your first time visiting us, we're delighted to have you here!
THIS MEANS WE BELIEVE GOD HAS CALLED US...
- To be compassionate people who see the face of Christ in all people, who love as radically as Jesus does, and who honor all people and all religions.
- To be challenging people who work actively for justice and peace, who ask hard questions of the bible, who think deeply, and who advocate for a better world.
- To be inclusive people who welcome all God's community, who rejoice in diversity, and who see God at work in the whole world.
WHAT HAPPENS IN WORSHIP?
We are part of a liturgical tradition, which simply means that we follow an ancient pattern for worship: gathering, word, meal, and sending. We begin with some announcements about community activities, and singing. We’ll read several biblical passages and then a pastor will preach on one of those readings for about 15 minutes. We share communion together every week and everyone is welcome, including all visitors and children. We finish with more singing as we’re sent into the world to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God.
WHAT SHOULD MY KIDS DO?
Kids are always welcome in worship! We have activity bags for them near the main doors into the sanctuary and children’s bibles in the chairs. There is no Sunday school on Easter Sunday, but children under four are welcome in the nursery at any time. All volunteers and staff who work with children at Holy Spirit undergo a yearly background check and are trained in safe and healthy boundaries.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Anything you like! We believe that God calls us to be our real, authentic selves with each other. Some of us dress up for worship, and others don’t. (Some wear Seahawks jerseys every once in awhile.)
WHERE CAN I PARK?
We have a small parking lot and it fills up quickly--especially on Easter Sunday. We know that can be frustrating. You can also park at the Kirkland Community Center on 124th St, or at the Juanita Business Park on 100th Ave.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WORSHIP?
Coffee is always available after worship, and we would love the chance to visit with you. Once a month we have other treats and activities in the Fellowship Hall. We’d also be glad to share more about the community and ministries at Holy Spirit; if you’re comfortable introducing yourself to a pastor, we would love to meet you and help you get connected to other people as well. You can also sign up to receive our weekly email.
