Join Us For Holy Week Services

Thursday April 18 6pm – Maundy Thursday Seder
We will begin at 6:00 PM with the Seder, the Passover meal Jesus celebrated with the disciples in the Upper Room the night before He was crucified. At this Last Supper, Jesus instituted the sacrament of Communion and washed the feet of his disciples as a sign that they were to be servants

Good Friday Worship – April 19 noon and 6pm

Saturday, April 20 8:00 PM – The Great Easter Vigil
The first Eucharist of Easter will begin in the dark as the Paschal candle is lit. As the congregants light their candles and proclaim “Jesus is the Light of the World,” we hear stories from the Old Testament. Then, if there are any to bed baptized, we do so, making a commitment to Christ by renewing our own vows. Then, as we turn on the lights and proclaim “Jesus is Risen!” we celebrate the Easter Eucharist.

April 21 is Easter
Join us for our Easter Services at 8:00 AM or 10:00 AM

Stations of the Cross –Fridays at noon

Join us for this traditional devotional service as we retrace Jesus’s steps while he is led to the cross and placed in the tomb. The devotion is about 20 minutes long.  Following this time of prayer and reflection a light lunch will be served in the parish hall.
