Palm Sunday, April 5 -Palms & Pancakes
8:30 & 9:45 a.m.
We will begin with a triumphant feel as children wave palms and we sing our Hosannas.
However, the Hosannas quickly turn to shouting “Crucify Him” as we read the passion story from the Gospel of John.
Pancakes will be served after all services as a fundraiser for our Mission Trip Youth.
Maundy Thursday, April 9
12:00 & 6:30 p.m.
As you enter the sanctuary, your hands are washed to symbolize the humbling act of service Jesus showed. We hear the story of his love in the upper room, as he washed his disciples feet and gave bread and wine, along with the command to love one another as he loves. We conclude the service with the stripping of the altar, learning together what each worship symbol means and why it is removed in preparation of our gathering at the cross on Good Friday.
Good Friday, April 10
12:00 p.m. & 6:30 p.m.
A Service of Shadows. Around Jesus’ death lies a shadow of mystery that holds grief and gratitude. At this service, as each passage from scripture is read and hymn sung in the shadow of the cross, we extinguish a candle, until we are in the shadow of the tomb. The service ends with our silently carrying the cross out of the sanctuary.
Easter Sunday, April 12

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!
