The United Congregational Church of Tolland is pleased to bring back the Easter tradition of a Sunrise Service for the second year in a row.
“This will be a highlight of the Holy Week services at our church and we are delighted to be bringing it back as part of our celebration of Easter, the holiest of our Christian holidays,” said Associate Pastor Rev. Judy Medeiros.
The Sunrise Service is being offered again this Easter because it was greatly attended last year and enjoyed by all.
To kick off Holy Week, the church will also have a special Palm Sunday service featuring readings by various worshipers, depicting some of the key characters in the Biblical story of Easter. This service will be led by Interim Senior Pastor Rev. Ineke Mitchell and Associate Pastor Rev. Judy Medeiros.

- Palm Sunday Worship Services: 4/13/14, 8:30 & 10 a.m.
