8:00, 9:15, 10:30 a.m.
Footprints in the Sand: A Journey to the Cross and Beyond
This is a Jubilee Sunday and there will be no Sunday School so that families can worship together and then eat pancakes!

Maundy Thursday, April 18
12:00 p.m.
Holy Communion & Stripping of the Altar
This service will use the spoken word and old, familiar hymns to remember Jesus’ last supper and the meaning of the symbols on the altar as they are stripped away.

6:30 p.m.
A Living Last Supper
At this service, interspersed with song and readings, the dramatic story telling of Jesus’ last supper with his disciples around an ancient table reminds us of the gift given ‘for you’ around our altar table.

Good Friday, April 19
12:00 p.m. & 6:30 p.m.
The Hammer and the Nail at the Foot of the Cross
With a nail in your hand, you will imagine walking the dusty roads of Jerusalem with Jesus – first shouting the acclamation of Palm Sunday, “Hosanna” and then the cry at the foot of the cross, “Crucify him!” This worship service uses all of your senses to experience the last hours, moments and words of Christ’s life.

Easter Sunday, April 21
8:00, 9:15, 10:30 a.m.
He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!
“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!” God has Jesus appear to us, “chosen as witnesses,” in holy baptism and invites us to eat and drink at the table of the risen Christ. Alleluia!

Wednesday Lent Series – God is…

Moses said to God, “They are going to ask me, ‘What’s this God’s name?’  What am I supposed to say to them?”  God responded by saying, “I AM Who I AM.”  So, say to the people, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” (Exodus 3:13-14)

Come journey with us this lent and discover who God is, this great I AM that sends us out.

Worships at 12 & 6:30pm with soup served one hour prior.
