Maundy Thursday  April 2, 7:00 p.m.

Foot Washing, Prayer Stations, Holy Communion, and Stripping of the Altar

 

With nightfall our Lenten observance comes to an end, and we gather with Christians around the world to begin the Three Days during which we participate once again in the saving power of Jesus' passing over from death to life. At the heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy is Jesus' commandment to love one another. As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, we are called to follow his example as we humbly care for one another, especially the poor and the unloved.

 

Good Friday  April 3, 4:30 & 7:00 p.m.

4:30 - An interactive family service for all

7:00 - A service of Scripture and darkness

 

At the heart of the Good Friday liturgy is the passion according to John, which proclaims Jesus as a triumphant king who reigns from the cross. The ancient title for this day - the triumph of the cross - reminds us that the church gathers not to mourn this day but to celebrate Christ's life-giving passion and to find strength and hope in the Tree of Life. In the ancient bidding prayer we offer petitions for all the world for whom Christ died.

 

Easter Vigil  April 4, 7:00 p.m.

with Holy Communion

 

This is our Passover with Christ from darkness to light, from captivity to freedom, from death to life. Tonight is the heart of our celebration of the Three Days. The resurrection of Christ is proclaimed in word and sign, as we gather around a pillar of fire, hear ancient stories of our faith, and share the food and drink of the promised land.

       

Easter Sunday  April 5, 8:30 & 11:00 a.m. with Holy Communion

8:30 - Rise worship, led by piano, guitar, percussion and vocalists

11:00 - Traditional worship, led by organ, piano, choirs and brass

 

Christ is risen, indeed! On Easter morning, we stand gaping at the open and empty tomb with the women who followed Jesus throughout his ministry. With the women, we are called to proclaim the amazing news of the resurrection.

 

Easter Breakfast will be served 9:15-10:45 a.m.
