Holy Week Services

Palm Sunday, Apr 9, 8 am and 10:30 am. These identical services begin with the account of Jesus’ final journey into Jerusalem. We bless palms and children process around the sanctuary behind the cross. Then the service changes tone as we hear the Passion story. Holy Communion will be celebrated. Childcare and Children’s Church are available.

Maundy Thursday, Apr 13, 7 pm. This service begins with the liturgy of corporate confession and absolution. As we came forward on Ash Wednesday to receive the ashen cross as a sign of repentance, on Maundy Thursday we receive absolution and anointing with oil as a sign of forgiveness. We will also celebrate the First Communion of some of our young people. The service ends quite movingly with the stripping of the altar and chancel in remembrance of Jesus’ humiliation at the hands of the Roman soldiers. Childcare & Children’s Church are available.

Good Friday, Apr 14, 7 pm. This service focuses on the Biblical Stations of the Cross with Service of Tenebrae (shadows). The church will be progressively darkened as we walk with Christ on the path of sorrows. This service is moving as we witness Jesus’ passion and death. Childcare is available.

Easter Vigil, Apr 15, 7 pm. Also called Paschal Vigil, this service is the first official celebration of the resurrection of Christ. It includes hymns, readings and a powerful liturgy that symbolizes the movement from the darkness of Good Friday to the light of Christ on Easter Sunday. Childcare is available. There will be a reception following the service for those interested.

Easter Sunday, Apr 16, 8 am & 10:30 am. We celebrate the Festival of our Lord’s Resurrection with choir, brass, bells and Holy Communion. Childcare & Children’s Church are available.
