Celebrate Holy Week With Us!
Do you need to hear something good in your life? Do you need a second chance or a fresh source of hope? Are you hurting, lonely, or afraid? Do you feel like you are running on empty?
Come hear a powerful message that reminds us that there is hope and affirms that we all are loved.
Holy Week is a special week of worship and prayer that helps us know God. Visitors and guests are always welcome to worship with us, hear these stories, and respond in your life. And we know it is challenging to step into an unfamiliar church for the first time and not be sure what to expect.
Palm Sunday, April 14 at 10:45 AM, is a special Sunday when we remember Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, days before he would be killed. We worship with our children taking an important role, waving palm branches and shouting words of celebration. We end the service by turning toward the cross.
Maundy Thursday, April 18 at 7:00 PM, is a worship in the evening that gathers us around tables to share in the Last Supper, a moment in Jesus' journey when he blessed his disciples, promised to be with them, and gave them his final teachings to love one another. We will share Holy Communion during this time. Wherever you are in your journey with Christ, you are welcome at the table.
Holy Saturday, April 20 at 7:00 PM, is a new and unique time of prayer as we sit in silence during the time when Jesus, after having been put to death, was sealed in a tomb. We will ask questions and think about those who are hurting, grieving, lonely, or lost. You may be one of them, and if so, we will have special moments of prayer using movie clips, music, words, and movement.
Easter Sunday is April 21 at 10:45 AM. We welcome everyone for worship to hear startling and wild news that Jesus lives. We will sing great music, hear the story anew, and look with hope to the gift of abundant life in our midst. You and your friends are very welcome. Even if you feel like you have heard the story before, come and be prepared to experience God's love.
Our What to Expect page tells many things about who we are and what our time together is like. We'd rather have you join us than worry about what you are wearing or whether or not you are good enough or believe the right things. You will find we do our best to offer a warm welcome, whatever your story might be.
See you during Holy Week!
