Holy Week 2019 Services

Holy Week 2019 Services:

Maundy Thursday (April 18, 2019) services are at 1:00 PM & 6:30 PM.

The Great “Three Days” is one of a great festival held over three days, beginning with Holy Thursday’s celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Each one of these days is filled with symbols that lead us toward the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. We gather today to be reminded of God’s love for us and our commandment to love one another.

Good Friday (April 19, 2019) service is at 6:30 PM.

This Good Friday service of “Tenebrae” (“shadows”) speaks to the increasing darkening of the sanctuary during the service, symbolizing the denial of Jesus by his disciples and friends and their ultimate abandonment of him. As total darkness descends upon the sanctuary we also recall the death of Jesus. Yet, even in this darkness, we are reminded that there is but one light – the eternal light of Christ.

Easter Sunday (April 21, 2019) services are at 8:30 AM & 11:00 AM.

Join us between services for our Easter Sunday breakfast. Bring any dish you wish to bring. For hot dishes, please bring them with you already warm. We don’t have the ability to heat anything on Easter Sunday morning.
