A light supper will be served as part of the experience.

EASTER "SONRISE" SERVICE, APRIL 1: 8:00 am in the Narthex at First Presbyterian Church of Cranford. Weather permitting, we will worship outside! Celebrate Christ’s resurrection with Pastor Chris in an “unplugged” acoustic version of Easter Worship.

TRADITIONAL EASTER SERVICE, APRIL 1: 10:00 am in the main sanctuary. Full choirs, glorious music, and beautiful flowers symbolizing rebirth, will enrich the celebration of Christ’s resurrection. We will sing Handel’s “Hallelujah” Chorus, and organist Robert Grube will play Widor’s “Toccata”.

And don’t forget to come back for:

AN EASTER CANTATA – “HALLELUJAH! CHRIST AROSE!”:  On April 15 at 10:00 am in the main sanctuary, the Chancel Choir, under the Direction of Alison Nead and accompanied by Robert Grube on piano and Kathleen Daly on violin, will continue the Easter celebration singing “Hallelujah! Christ Arose!” created and arranged by Luke Woodard.


As the body of Christ inspired by the Holy Spirit, we seek to be faithful disciples living our lives as a testimony of Christ's love for all. We welcome diversity and respect and care for all of God's creation. We seek to spread the Word and invite others to live Jesus' command to love one another as the Lord first loved us.
