Palm Sunday (April 9th)
Many in the crowd spread their coats on the road ahead of Jesus, And others cut leafy branches in the fields and spread them along the way. Let’s start a new tradition at John Knox to fully portray what happened that first Palm Sunday. Children will lead us in the parade of palms. Wear a t-shirt and bring a t-shirt (or many) to donate as we will be laying clothing over the pews to be collected and given to the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. (Oh, and we will have the branches also!)
Maundy Thursday (April 13)
Maundy Thursday will be observed at 6:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper Jesus had with his disciples and his giving of instructions also known as mandates ("Maundy" is Latin for mandates). Children have a very special active role to play in this service, so we'll be needing their help! A light supper will be served at no charge and the entire program will last less than an hour. Child care for the very young will be provided.
Good Friday (April 14)
Our ecumenical Good Friday service with six other churches will be held at John Calvin Presbyterian Church at 7:00 p.m. This service hopes to be an impactful and moving opportunity to see the cross of Jesus from a variety of perspectives. Combined choirs will sing: I Need Thee Every Hour and Ah, Holy Jesus.
(John Calvin is located at 8181 E 31st Street)
Easter Egg Hunt (Saturday, April 15)
Easter Egg Hunt will be celebrated on Saturday, April 15 at 10:00. Parents and children will gather promptly at 10:00 a.m. to hear Pastor Kate read the Easter Story and then children will be dismissed by age groups to specific areas to search out those Easter Eggs! Our Boy Scouts will hide over one thousand eggs so there should be plenty for everyone! If it rains, we'll simply move inside!
Easter Sunday (April 16)
Easter Sunday will be comprised of one service (11:00 a.m.) and will be celebrated in the sanctuary. Easter celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and our future hope! We will pull out all the stops and blend a variety of music and instruments! Throughout Lent we have incorporated the arts into our worship. Jennifer Brown is our artist this year. Jennifer's task has been to interpret the gospel through the visual medium. Jennifer's mural will culminate on Easter Sunday.

Earth Day (Saturday, April 22)
The John Knox Trustees have decided to make Saturday, April 22nd a Congregational Work Day at the church. All are invited to come and apply a little elbow grease and effort to any problem that needs a little maintenance and TLC. For those with extra ambition, a list of suggestions of needed chores will be posted on the kiosk in the upper narthex with opportunity to sign up. Starting time is presently set at 9:00 a.m. and a worker’s lunch will be provided around noon. Bring your scrub brushes, paint brushes, oiling rags, or whatever tools you’ll need to get the job done.

Week of the Young Child (April 24-28)

One of the days (the exact day to be announced) of the week of April 24-28, we will once again be participating by reading to the children who attend our new “Happy Campers Academy at John Knox”. The sign-up sheet will be available prior to that week after the early service and before and after the 11:00 service. Please contact Gail Bullock at 918.307.1417 or
