You are invited to join us for the Journey Through Holy Week:

Palm Sunday – We, Christ’s disciples, join the throng entering the city of Jerusalem, entering through the ancient gates to enter once more into the unfolding story of Jesus’ last days before his crucifixion. We enter the sanctuary carrying the Palms with all the excitement and anticipation of those who followed Jesus. On this Palm Sunday, we will also share in Communion.

Maundy Thursday – Come and join the community as we gather at tables to remember God’s saving activity through a Symbolic Seder Meal. Smell the lamb cooking over fire, taste the bitter herbs, hold the cup, hear the ancient story. The meal begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.

 Good Friday – We gather on Friday evening, at 7 p.m., under the shadow of the cross, to join our choir and reader in a moving retelling through word and music of Christ’s last days. The Tenebrae Service, “It Is Finished” by Mary McDonald draws us into the wondrous love of God and the mystery of God’s suffering love. Other instrumentalists will join the choir in this presentation. Friends, community members, family members are warmly welcomed.

Easter Sunday – Two services will be held on Easter – the first at 7:30 a.m. which will feature a dramatic presentation, followed by an Easter breakfast sponsored by our Christian Nurture and Fellowship committee.

Come and celebrate the good news that death cannot overcome God’s love and God’s resurrection power! A second service will be held at 10:00 a.m. and will include the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

All are welcome!
