Holy Week: Focusing on Jesus...
"What is the new message of Grace that Christ has for us this Easter?" - Pastor Albert
Maundy Thursday, April 5th
6:15pm Dinner, 7:00pm Worship
This celebration of The Last Supper and Jesus' Arrest in the Garden plans to be a quiet, introspective evening of preparation. A candlelight soup dinner will be held in the Fellowship Hall prior to this Tenebrae Worship (A Service of Gathering Darkness) begins our journey toward Christ’s crucifixion.
Prayer Vigil, April 5th - April 6.
Thursday @ 6:00pm - Friday @ 6:00pm
The prayer vigil will be held in the chapel beginning Maundy Thursday and continuing through Good Friday.
Our goal is to have 24 hours of unbroken prayer. Sign up for a half-hour slot(s) or simply come and pray when you are able. "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation." (Matthew 26:41)
Youth Midnight Worship
Thursday at midnight
Middle and High School students will spend an hour reflecting on the crucifixion of Jesus during this time of song, prayer, Scripture readings, silence, and togetherness. This will take place as a part of the 24 Hour Prayer Vigil, and all are welcome to join us during this time.
Friday, April 6th, at 12:00, 12:30, and 1:00 pm
A continuous service in 30-minute segments will be held in the Chapel. Come for a portion, or the whole time as we meet at the foot of the cross to reflect on the Crucifixion and what Jesus did for all of us.
