Holy Week Activities

Thursday, March 20: Maundy Thursday Seder Meal. Come and participate in the Passover Seder as Jesus and his disciples would have shared it the night he was arrested by the authorities. 6pm

Friday, March 21: Good Friday Tenebre Service. The Tenebre is a sparse and somber "Service of Darkness." We hear the passion story read by candlelight, and end the service by stripping the sanctuary of all decoration. This symbolizes the spiritual emptying of our hearts so that we may be filled with the joy of the resurrection on Easter. 6pm

Saturday, March 22: Easter Vigil: Easter begins at sundown on Saturday evening, and this service celebrates the "first light" of Easter visually with the first lighting of the Paschal candle, and a candlelight carol and processional into the sanctuary. We'll celebrate the night by singing our favorite hymns. 6pm

Sunday, March 23: Easter Sunday Worship: Come and celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ at this festive worship service. 10:55am.
