Easter: Join the Celebration

Alleluia! He is risen! Pastor Paul A. Sweet and the congregation of the East Hampstead Union Church invite the community to Easter morning worship on Sun., March 31, at 10:00 a.m. Above are scenes depicted in the church that reflect some of the steps of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, and Easter Scripture. Top photo, left, is the pulpit where the message will be delivered by Pastor Sweet. It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end, John 13:1-17. East Hampstead Union Church is located at 225 East Main Street (Rte.121A), East Hampstead. Families and friends may also gather for traditional Easter egg hunts and special dinners.  All are welcome.
