Holy Week Highlights:


April 13th Sunday Worship 9:30am
     Liturgy of the Palms, Liturgy of the Passion
We’ll hear the Gospel according to Matthew and sing our Hosannas! as we remember Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem; and together we’ll anticipate the journey to come.
 
April 17th Maundy Thursday, 7:30pm
     Worship Service of Communion and Tenebrae
This evening we’ll share communion and remember together Jesus’ commandment to love one another.  Following, we will read Matthew’s words about Jesus’ last days and experience the darkness that falls in and around us as Jesus nears death.
It’s a solemn evening in which music and candlelight play a meaningful role.
 
April 18th Good Friday 12pm to 3pm
This afternoon we’ll remember the violence and silencing of human dignity when Jesus was crucified, and the love that death could not extinguish.  
The sanctuary will be open for prayer and reflection from noon until 3PM. 
 
April 19th Holy Saturday
    A day on our own.  A day of solitude, of silence, of remembering whose we are and who we want to be, of praying as the promise and light of Easter nears.
 
April 20th Easter Day Worship 9:30am
The Return of the Light! Alleluia!
               8:15am to 9:15am Easter Breakfast and Activities in Fellowship Hall
Join us for Breakfast sponsored by the Deacons!  We will be serving cinnamon and caramel rolls, fresh fruit, and beverages. There will be Easter Activities for children during this time.
Hope to see you there!
