Easter & Holy Week

Easter & Holy Week

Holy Week is the week preceding Easter that commemorates the events that led up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. We invite you to join us for the services listed below.  Additionally, you can download this harmony of Scripture readings that walk through the Gospel accounts of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday, April 1.

‘Maundy’ comes from the Latin word that means ‘mandate,’ and it refers to the new commandment Jesus gave to his disciples in the Upper Room – that we love one another as Jesus loved us (John 13.31-35). This year, we have prepared a table liturgy to use within your home.

Good Friday , April 2, 10 am to 3 pm.

The sanctuary will be open for prayer and self-guided meditations on the Stations of the Cross. A guide to the Stations will be available. Please plan to wear a mask and practice social distancing; reservations are not required.

 Good Friday Evening, April 2, 7 pm.

Our Good Friday service will be a Tenebrae (Latin for ‘darkness’) service. Our worship will center around Scripture readings from the hours leading up to and including the crucifixion along with singing and prayer. It is a quiet and contemplative service, and it ends in silence. Registration is required. You can register and find additional details here.

Easter Sunday Morning, April 4, 8:30, 10:00, 11:30 am and 1 pm

We will celebrate the Resurrection of Christ together in our regular worship services. Registration is required. You can register and find additional details here.

 If you’d like to donate a flower for Easter Sunday in honor or in memory of a loved one, please contact Larissa Bossemeyer to make arrangements.  Consider a donation of $15 for each flower.  You can pick up the flowers after the 1 pm service on Easter Sunday in the front of the sanctuary.
