PALM SUNDAY

Sunday, April 10 | 8:00 am (In-Person)

and 10:30 am (In-Person and Livestream)

Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week, a seven-day span that culminates the day before Easter Sunday. This day marks the remembrance of Jesus' last days to the cross and recalls an event in The New Testament of Jesus entering Jerusalem and being greeted by the people waving palm branches. Join us and arrive a little early to process with the palms! We'll meet in the church courtyard before each service. 

MAUNDY THURSDAY

Thursday, April 14 | 7:30 pm (In-Peron and Livestream)

This service is the commemoration of the institution of Holy Communion by Jesus as we reflect on his commandment to love one another as He loved us. We spend the night in prayer, seeking God's mercy and comfort. We'll have readings, music, foot-washing, and celebrate the Eucharist. The altar is stripped, recalling the emptiness the disciples felt as Jesus was arrested.

NIGHT WATCH

Thursday, April 14 | 9:00 pm —Friday, April 15 | 11:59 am

“Could you not stay awake with me one hour?” Jesus asked his friends in the garden. The Night Watch gives us an opportunity to stay awake and answer Jesus’s invitation to pray with him.

 

Throughout the night we will offer hourly prayer shifts. The Youth Group will be on campus and assist in filling the open time slots. Prayer resources will be available to help enrich the hours of prayer and watching. Interested in participating? Register HERE

GOOD FRIDAY

Friday, April 15 | 12:00 pm (In-Person and Livestream)

and 7:30 pm (In-Person)

On Good Friday, we remember Christ's crucifixion. It is a somber service, and the clergy wear black vestments. We will wait and watch with Jesus as we meditate on his death.

EASTER VIGIL

Saturday, April 16 | 7:30 pm (In-Person and Livestream)

Easter Vigil, also called the Paschal Vigil or the Great Vigil of Easter, is a beautiful service held in traditional churches as the first official celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. Historically, it is during this service that people are baptized and adult catechumens are received into full communion with the Church. It is the first celebration of Easter and traditionally begins at sunset.

EASTER SUNDAY

Sunday, April 17 | 8:00 am (In-Person)

and 10:30 am (In-Person and Livestream)

Easter is the most important celebration of the church’s year! This day is the joyful observance of Jesus rising from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. We'll have post worship photo ops in the Narthex with our Easter props! Bring a fresh flower to flower the cross and have your children bring their Easter baskets for the Egg Hunt.

EASTER EGG HUNT

Following the 10:30 am service on Easter Sunday we will host an egg hunt for children of all ages on the large playground. Start times will be staggered by age (0-5; 6-8; 9-11) to allow families to participate together in a joy-filled activity. Don't forget your basket! As we prepare for our hunt, we are in need of some candy! To donate, simply drop off your candy at the office during the week or in the bins in the Narthex by Thursday, 4/14.
