Holy Week and Easter Worship
Please take this opportunity to invite your friends and neighbors to celebrate with us at one of our worship services this Easter.
Thursday, April 17, 6:30 pm. MAUNDY THURSDAY we will gather in the Fellowship Hall to partake of the Seder Supper Meal. The purpose of this gathering is to learn of the Jewish tradition of Passover that lies behind our Christian celebration of the Last Supper and the weekly Eucharist. At the end of the meal, we process into the sanctuary for the stripping of the altar which leads us into the penitence of Good Friday. The service is an excellent learning experience for children.
Friday, April 18, 8:00 pm. GOOD FRIDAY proclaims Jesus as a triumphant king who reigns from the cross. We gather not to mourn but to celebrate Christ’s life-giving passion and to find strength and hope in the tree of life. Join us for the emotionally and spiritually powerful Tenebrae Service at 8 p.m. beginning with a special presentation by our youth and a message for the children.
Sunday, April 20, EASTER is here at last. He is risen, He is risen indeed! The resurrection of Christ is proclaimed with shouts of Alleluia — there is good news for everyone: death has been put to death, humanity has been restored. Rejoice with us at any of the three services on Easter Day:
- Sunrise Worship begins at 6:54 a.m. in our Memorial Garden. The early breakfast will begin immediately following the Sunrise service. A free will offering will be taken.
