Holy Week 2015

We have celebrated Palm Sunday, hearing how the people ran to meet Jesus on his entry into Jerusalem. We are entering into a week that would seem very dark in how we have originally thought of darkness. But within this darkness we will learn new things about Jesus, his message, and how it will not only affect us, but the role we can play in carrying out this message. What if we entered this week searching for the ways we can find growth in our own understanding of what Easter morning will mean to us, rather than being mentally beaten down by the perceived darkness of Holy Week? Come and experience ALL of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday Services 7:00pm in the Sanctuary

We will have the opportunity of hand-washing, remembering the Last Supper with Communion, followed by a Tenebrae service, arrival of the cross and stripping the Sanctuary.

Tenebrae is the Latin term for “shadows.”

It is a service of lessons accompanied by the gradual extinguishing of lights.

 

Good Friday Readings 12:00-1:00pm in the Sanctuary

The Good Friday service is Biblical readings with organ interlude.

A quiet service meant for private reflection of the events leading up to Easter.

 

Early Easter Service 7:30am in the Chapel

Our first service on Easter morning, celebrating the Resurrection.

A continental breakfast will be held in the Student Lounge following worship.

 

Easter Service 10:00 in the Sanctuary

The service will begin remembering Holy Saturday. We will move into the Resurrection by

adorning our Cross with fresh flowers (bring your favorite, colorful fresh flowers),

music with a Brass Quintet, and the community singing the “Hallelujah Chorus.”

We will hear the reminder that Christ has come to offer life to each of us!
