Holy Week 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Julie Blum   

Holy week is considered by many to be the most sacred time of the church year.  We encourage you to attend all of our worship services this week to fully appreciate the rhythm and meaning of the events we are commemorating. 

April 13: Palm Sunday 10:30 am.  Our worship service will begin outside in the Parking Plaza with a procession into the sanctuary with palm branches.  This day commemorates Jesus arriving in Jerusalem and being greeted by the crowds present for Passover.  Our worship will be filled with joyful music and fun for all ages!

April 17: Maundy Thursday potluck dinner and worship, 6:30 pm.  This worship service commemorates the evening Jesus shared the last supper with his disciples, gave them the commandment to love one another and was arrested.  Both our dinner and worship will take place in the Community hall of church.  Please bring a dish to share.  We will eat first and then have a brief worship service which concludes with the congregation walking upstairs to the sanctuary and “stripping the altar.” Worship will also include optional foot washing.

April 18: Good Friday worship, 7:30 pm.  Good Friday is a touching, somber and powerful worship service.  This is the night we remember Jesus dying on the cross by focusing on the seven last words of Christ as interpreted by your fellow church members, interspersed by music and candlelight. 

April 19: Prayer Vigil & Flower cross decorating: The sanctuary will be open on Holy Saturday from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm for anyone to come to pray and mediate prior to our Easter celebration the next morning.  Then at 9:00 pm we will decorate our annual flower cross.  Feel free to bring flowers, gloves, scissors, etc. to help decorate the cross that will adorn our Easter Sunday worship space.  Alternatively you can just drop off flowers (anytime that day in buckets that will be outside the church doors) or you can just come to decorate. 

April 20: Easter Sunday, 9:00 am join us for an Easter breakfast in our Community Hall, followed by worship at 10:30 am.  Our worship will be a joyful celebration full of music, scripture, Communion and bright festivities.  Invite your whole family, neighbors, co-workers and friends for the most jubilant worship of the church year.
