In the Garden: A Vigil for the City


Holy Saturday, April 20, 2019

7:30 p.m. at Dockside, Clara Meer Dock at Piedmont Park

During this Saturday evening vigil, we will welcome the Resurrection light as it breaks into the darkness of night. Join us in the midst of our city as we unite our hearts to the earliest followers of Jesus in this ancient service of story and song, shadows and light, creatively imagined for our time and place.

This service will take place at the iconic dockside landing in Piedmont Park, accessible from 12th Street and Piedmont Avenue. Seating will be limited, so bring a lawn chair or a blanket. Singers of all skill-levels are invited to rehearse at 7:00 p.m. and to sing in our “pickup” choir, and all are welcome (but not required) to bring a dessert to share as we begin the Easter feast together!

UPDATE (April 20 at 3:00 p.m.):

It’s a little colder and cloudier than we’d like it to be, but tonight’s Easter Vigil will go on! Please make sure to dress warmly. If it’s raining, we’ll move inside the building near the Clara Meer Dock at Piedmont Park. Secure parking is available at the church from 7:00-10:00 p.m. for anyone who would like to park there and walk (or take MARTA/ a rideshare) to the park.
