Palm Sunday Weekend: Celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem with service at the Celebration Service on Saturday, April 1, at 5:30 p.m.; or Sunday, April 2, at 10 a.m. (traditional service). There will be a Palm Parade for children at the 10 a.m. Sunday traditional service.
Maundy Thursday: On Thursday, April 6, at 6 p.m., in honor of the Passover, there will be a special service. Everyone is invited to attend along with their entire family. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the meal Jesus was celebrating at His Last Supper. Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, the Garden of Gethsemane and Jesus’ arrest.
Good Friday: On Friday, April 7, at 6 p.m. there will be a Stations of the Cross Service. The Stations Service is a powerful way to contemplate, and enter into, the mystery of Jesus’ gift of Himself to us. The service involves our senses and our emotions as we experience the love of Jesus in a new and deep way.The Stations Service will be in the Sanctuary and does not require walking.
Easter Weekend: The Entire Church will be celebrating Easter together on Sunday morning, April 9, at 10 a.m.; therefore, there will be no Saturday Service on April 8. An Easter Continental Breakfast will be served before service on Easter morning from 9-9:45 am. Each attendee is asked to bring a live flower (no silk) on Easter morning (April 9). Before the morning service, we will be adorning the small cross near the Sanctuary entrance with flowers. As you place your flower in the wire mesh, experience the Cross Coming to Life.
