Holy Humor Worship Service on Sunday, April 7

April 7 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

This service will be full of brightness, joy and fun. This is still a worship service, but one that will put a little bounce in your step and warm your heart. Invite a friend to join in the holy hilarity! The likelihood of the unexpected will be high.

Holy Humor Sunday has its roots in a number of different Christian traditions, dating back to the 15th century. The Sunday after Easter was first celebrated in Bavaria as Risus Paschalis (‘God’s Joke,’ or ‘the Easter laugh’). Priests would deliberately include amusing stories and jokes in their sermons in an attempt to make the faithful laugh. After the service, people would gather together to play practical jokes on one another and tell funny stories. It was their way of celebrating the resurrection of Christ – the supreme joke God played on Satan by raising Jesus from the dead.
