Holy Week Worship

Join us to celebrate the greatest week in the history of the world.

Maundy Thursday: A Meal to Save You

April 13 at 7:00 pm

Maundy Thursday gets its name from the Latin word mandatum, the first word of the Latin translation of John 13:34 “Mandatum movum do vobis ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos.” That phrase means “A new command I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you.” Jesus explained to the apostles the significance of this command by washing their feet before he instituted the Lord’s Supper. On this day we look at the special spiritual benefits God gives us in this holy meal. Worship includes the celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

Good Friday: The Seven Words, a Service of Darkness

April 14 at 7:00 pm

On this day, darkness blanketed the earth from noon until 3:00 pm, as our Savior endured the pains of hell, hanging from a cross. But Christ’s suffering means our salvation. In this worship service, we use the ancient customer of “Tenebrae”, Latin for darkness. Throughout the service, as we meditate upon our Savior’s passion, lights are dimmed and  candles snuffed. This symbolizes the ebbing of Christ’s life. The somberness of this workship service serves as a foil, making the joy of Easter Sunday all that much brighter.

Easter Sunday: Risen to Free Us!

April 16 at 8:30 am and 11:00 am

He is risen indeed! On Easter morning we celebrate the fact that Jesus has risen from the dead to save us. His resurrection is the proof positive that we stand before God as forgiven children, free from condemnation and hell, and that we will live forever in heaven. A congregational breakfast potluck and children’s Easter egg hunt will take place at 9:45 am.
