Holy Week: A Spiritual Journey to Easter
It is a journey that goes from excitement, through uncertainty, betrayal, denial, deep sorrow, despair, and culminates in the ultimate joy of the resurrection. Join us on this Holy Week journey - may it strengthen and deepen your relationship with God through Jesus Christ as you walk in the footsteps of his last seven days.
Palm Sunday, April 14th, 8:30 am chapel, 10:00 am sanctuary
The Holy Week journey begins on Palm Sunday. On this day, we joyfully remember the triumphal entry into Jerusalem and remember Jesus humbly riding on a donkey as palm branches are laid before him. During this service, we experience the excitement through the sound of a vibrant, percussive Hosanna that will be led by our Sanctuary Choir!
Maundy Thursday, April 18th 7:00 pm service, Sanctuary
On Maundy Thursday, we experience the Last Supper between Jesus and his disciples.During this service, our journey takes a turn toward uncertainty and fear as we remember Judas' betrayal, Peter's denial, and Jesus' arrest.
Good Friday, April 19th at 7:00pm service, Sanctuary (childcare provided)
Good Friday is a dark and mournful point in our journey through Holy Week. During this service, we remember the day that Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried. This is a Tenebrae Service (Service of Shadows) in which we immerse ourselves in the darkness that surrounded Jesus in his last hours. The shadows of Good Friday give depth to the brightness of Easter, and in this service remember Jesus' journey to the cross through a series of readings, hymns, and music.
Easter Sunday, April 21st: Traditional services, 9:00 & 11:00 am sanctuary - Children's program is at 9:00 am in the Upper Room 2D1. Childcare provided for both services.
Christ is risen...he is risen indeed! The glory of this day is much more meaningful having walked with Jesus through all the emotions of Holy Week. Our voices joyfully join in the celebratory songs of resurrection with choir, bells, piano, instruments and organ.
