Holy Week – This is the last week of the season of Lent. It started with Palm/Passion Sunday and continues with special worship experiences to mark the dramatic steps Jesus took in the last week of his earthly life. We remember his faithfulness even in the face of disloyalty and betrayal.
Maundy Thursday we offer a Holy Communion service at 7:00 p.m. On Good Friday, we offer a litany of scripture interspersed with poignant music to move us into this confrontation with death. This service will begin at 12:05 in Great Hall.
These are profound experiences offered to prepare us for the power of Easter.
But the pain of crucifixion and betrayal is not the last word! Time moves on, and we experience the abounding love of God overcoming all of the fear, pain and death as we proclaim the resurrection of Christ. We offer three worship experiences on Easter Sunday morning. We will celebrate in the sanctuary at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00. Each will be a powerful presentation of the Gospel.
Our newest Easter experience is being offered at 4:00 p.m. in the sanctuary on Saturday. It is an Easter Eve service designed especially with children in mind. We will have choirs of children singing and other children reading and participating in the serving of Holy Communion. All who are interested are welcome to join us for this special, family-friendly opportunity.
It will be followed by an Easter egg hunt for children at 5:00 p.m. outside in our Boston Avenue Park north of the church.
You will find all of these services moving you closer to the presence of God. I hope to see you throughout the week!
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with your most gracious favor… (Find more of these prayers for your use on our website.)
