Lent and Easter

At Towson Presbyterian Church

All are invited to come and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ at Towson Presbyterian Church this Easter on Sunday, March 31, 2024.

Both the 9:00am and 11:00am Easter Sunday service will take place in our sanctuary. However, only the 9:00am service will be livestreamed (Facebook, YouTube, and towsonpres.org).

Noah's Nursery and Church School will not be offered at this time. Children wholeheartedly welcome and encouraged to sit with their families in the sanctuary.

Stay after the 9:00am service, or come early for the 11:00am service - and participate in the Easter Egg Hunt for Ages 0–5th Grade.

Post-Service Discussion

Dig In: The Power of Sacrifice || Sundays, 11:20am–12:30pm || Feb. 18, Mar. 3, Mar. 10, Mar. 17, Mar. 24 || During Lent our sermon series, “The Power of Sacrifice,” we will explore the theme of sacrifice not from a negative or life-draining perspective but instead from a life-giving perspective that can lead us to the fullness of life here and now. In “Dig In: The Power of Sacrifice,” Pastors Rob or Joel will facilitate a discussion around that morning’s scripture and sermon, and how we might live more fully into its challenges but also into its invitations. No RSVP is required, just drop by the Library after worship.
