Holy Week Services

Dear Family:


Here is the schedule of worship services for Holy Week and Easter:


1) Thursday, April 18, at 7:00pm“Maundy Thursday.”  The word “maundy” is a Latin word that means “to mandate.”  In this service we will remember our Lord’s Last Supper with His disciples when He created or “mandated” Holy Communion.  We will the end the service by stripping the altar as a reminder of when Jesus was stripped of His dignity as He was betrayed and arrested late that evening.

2) Friday, April 19, at 7:00pm“Good Friday Tenebre Service.”  The word “tenebre” means “darkness.”  In this service we will look at how heaven and earth intersect at the cross of Christ.  The lights will slowly be turned out during this service and we will leave in darkness and silence to contemplate our Lord’s suffering and death for us.


3) Easter Sunday, April 21:

7:00am: “Sunrise Worship” – This service will begin outside in our memorial gardens at the front of the church under the “He Is Risen” plague.  After some Scripture readings, we will then move inside to the sanctuary for the rest of the service.

9:00am: “Praise & Worship” – This service will be led by our praise team with contemporary Christian music.

11:00am: “Traditional Worship” – This service will involve traditional hymns on our organ along with our choir.

Communion will be served at all three services and Easter Breakfast will be served from 8:00am – 9:00am.


There will be no “Family Night” activities tonight, April 17, or next Wednesday, April 24.


In God’s Service,
Pastor Bill
