We will hold several worship services in the Sanctuary during Holy Week leading up to our Easter celebration:
- Palm Sunday | Sunday, April 13 @ 10:45 am
Children will lead our procession into the Sanctuary, waving palm branches as we remember Jesus' entry into Jerusalem at the beginning of Holy Week. The Agape Youth Choir and Children's Choir will provide special music throughout the service.
- Maundy Thursday | Thursday, April 17 @ 7:00 pm
The term “maundy” comes from the Latin translation of Jesus’ words in John 13: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you.” Jesus said this as he washed his disciples’ feet, an act of humility, service and love.This service of worship will offer an optional observance of footwashing, as well as Holy Communion. Our newly assembled Young Adult Choir will sing.
- Good Friday | Friday, April 18 @ noon
Marking the day Jesus died, this somber service will be punctuated with prayer and song, with soloists and imagery for contemplation.
- Easter Sunday | Sunday, April 20, two services @ 8:00 am and 10:45 am
Energetic worship and Holy Communion will be the highlight at both services. At the 10:45 service, we’ll hear special music by the Sanctuary Choir with selections from Robert Ray’s Gospel Mass; also, five of our 6th-grade youth will be confirmed.
Easter Fellowship Breakfast | On Easter Sunday, everyone is invited to a come-and-go fellowship time from 9:00–10:15 am in Humphrey Hall. A light, continental breakfast will be served. Have your family portrait made in our Easter photo booth and do crafts with the kids.
Easter Egg Hunt | Children and their families can also enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt in the Memorial Garden on Easter morning from 10–10:30 am for K–2nd graders. A hunt for toddlers–age 4 will take place on the Playground at the same time.
Confirmation of Youth | Our 6th graders, who have been studying the history of the church and the essentials of our Christian faith, will be confirmed in worship on Easter Sunday at the 10:45 am service.
