Holy Week Worship

Maundy Thursday, April 5, 7:00pm
From the Latin mandatum, or mandate, we gather to recall Jesus’ command to “Do this in remembrance of me.”  In addition to celebrating the sacrament of Holy Communion we welcome the youth who have completed preparations for their first communion with us.

Good Friday, April 6, 7:00pm
This service of remembrance is based on the ancient Tenebrae service of readings. Over the course of the service the entire story of Jesus’ arrest, trial and crucifixion will be told with time to reflect quietly and in song after each part of the story is told.

Easter Sunday, April 8,8:15 – A traditional Easter worship service with brass and organ
9:45 & 11:00 –  An Easter celebration with contemporary Christian music
At all three of our Easter morning worship services we will celebrate Holy Communion and hear the sermon “A Garden Surprise.”

Easter Brunch: Sunday 9:00-11:00
Fresh cinnamon rolls, egg bakes, fruit salad, juice, coffee & milk will be served in the Fellowship Hall for a free-will donation. All proceeds support the 44 people going to serve on the high school mission trip this summer in Minnesota.

Note: Lutheran Church of the Resurrection believes that all people are welcome at Holy Communion. If you commune at a home church you are welcome to commune with us. If you have no church home and simply desire the presence of God that is found in the bread and wine you are also welcome to receive the sacrament.
