BE OUR GUEST!… For us at Laurel Church, these words remind us of the delightful song from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” but also of the kind of welcome we’d like to offer to our neighbors on Easter Day. For literally billions of Christians around the globe, Easter marks the climax of their faith, a time to rejoice once again that life wins over death, Jesus — the friend of the outcast and “sinner” – is indeed Lord!
And yet, for many others, it may be moment to re-enter the life of faith, to celebrate coming together as a family in a safe and secure place or simply to find inspiration and encouragement for the coming week. At our 10:00 am service on Easter Sunday, April 21, we hope to honor what may be in the hearts and expectations of all in worship. We believe God loves us just the way we are, and as those who seek to follow Jesus, we want to do the same.
So, friends, be our guest this Sunday at Laurel Presbyterian Church, 9675 Staples Mill Road, Glen Allen. Come for the joy! Come for the music! Come for Easter Egg Hunt! Come to discover what has linked together people like Pope Francis, Stephen Colbert and Aretha Franklin… and be blessed!
