Lenten Worship

Holy Week at Good Shepherd

Palm Sunday

The long journey of Lent is over.  We have reached Holy Week with its glorious beginning and tragic, painful end.  Our Palm Sunday God Byte Worship recording will convey the joy, the anger, the love, the betrayal, the struggle of trying to know what to do.  Our Facebook Video will have a triumphal Palm Sunday emphasis.

Maundy Thursday

As you listen to this God Byte Worship recording, you learn the historical and cultural context to Christ’s final hours before his crucifixion.  Bible readings, music, hand bell chimes and dramatic readings will draw you to the upper room, the garden and the streets of Jerusalem to Golgotha.  This service will be posted on our Worship page.

Good Friday

You are invited to come inside the church for a prayer station experience at the cross where you will have an encounter with each of Jesus’ seven last words.  The worship experience begins with Holy Communion in the sanctuary.  Click here to reserve a time slot or call the church office.

Easter Sunday
8:30 & 10:30am

We will celebrate the Risen Lord of Life TOGETHER in our parking lot on your FM car radio.  Please enter the parking lot via Cahill Ave.  Worshippers will remain in their cars.  You may choose to bring a flowering plant in honor of a loved one to be placed in the Easter Garden.

A 40-Day Journey of Noticing God More

When you think of Lent, chances are one of the first things that come to mind is “giving something up,” as in “I’m giving up chocolate for Lent.” That is sort of right. But not quite. When you stop doing something you’re used to doing (like eating dessert), you notice different things. Lent is like that.

Our Lenten Series, adapted by a Fuller Youth Institute curriculum, will provide opportunities to consider subtracting something from our lives. Subtracting something is not just for the sake of ‘giving something up’ or to assist us in earning God’s favor or to punish us for what we did or did not do all the other seasons of the church year. Rather, together we will weekly subtract something so we – or perhaps God – can add something new, in order for us to notice God more.

Lenten Worship
Wednesdays at 12:00 & 6:30pm

Gather near the cross or stay warm in your car listening to the service on your radio. We will read from scripture, sing Holden Evening Prayer. engage in a short activity, and receive Holy Communion.
