Dear NYAC Clergy and Colleagues,

To enhance your congregation’s Easter celebration, this year we are offering a video recording of a full Easter worship service, with a sermon by Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton.  In addition, we have a second video, which is a stand-alone recording of Bishop Bickerton’s sermon, which you may incorporate into your church's Easter service, if you wish. You can find both of these recordings now on our NYAC website and our NYAC YouTube  page.

We have prepared accompanying resources which you may download from our website. They include the Order of Service, the text of the Bishop’s Easter Sermon, and a Worship Service Guide with suggestions on how to offer the recordings in a way that is most helpful to your congregation. The Order of Service and the text of the Bishop’s Sermon are also available in Korean, Spanish and Simplified Chinese.

For those who wish to join the Easter service online, we will host a premiere on the NYAC Facebook page on Sunday, April 12, beginning at 8:45 a.m.

For those who prefer to join the Easter service by telephone, we will host a call-in only Zoom service on Sunday, April 12, beginning at 8:45 a.m. To Join the NYAC-hosted ZOOM service, dial (929) 436-2866 and use ID: 713 501 443.

Blessings upon you as you prepare to celebrate this extraordinary Resurrection Day!
