EDISON, NJ - The Community Presbyterian Church will be celebrating Easter this upcoming Sunday as the conclusion to Holy Week.
We commemorate this week Thursday, called Maundy Thursday, as the Christian honoring of Passover and then Good Friday as the death of Jesus
This Saturday, the Community Presbyterian Church will host the Holy Treasure Hunt which is what we term the traditional Easter Egg Hunt.
Plastic eggs filled with chocolates and Bible verses will be spread out across our church fields for children to run and pick up.
For centuries, the Easter Egg has been a symbol of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ: as several species of birds come out of eggs to full life, so Christ come out of His tomb to share His Resurrection life with all believers.
For our church members, this is one of our ways to publicly express our faith.
We will sponsor two sessions of the Holy Treasure Hunt: at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Community Presbyterian Church will have two Easter Worship services welcoming all in our community to attend: at 7 a.m. and at 10:30 a.m.
The Community Presbyterian Church is located at 75 Glenville Road at the Boulevard of the Eagles across the street from the campus of Edison High School.
