As we observe the events surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection there will be several worship opportunities, each with its own significance this week. Family guests and community members are welcome to join us for any or all of these worship services.
Maundy Thursday – 7:00 pm Thursday, April 21, 2011
Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples in what turned out to be his last supper with them before his crucifixion. We share in that supper through our participation in Holy Communion. This is also the worship in which the 4th grade students who have received instruction will participate in their First Communion.
Good Friday – 7:00 pm Friday, April 22, 2011
Good Friday worship is a somber, meditative service in which we recall through readings and song, the crucifixion of Jesus.
Easter Sunday – 8:15, 9:45 & 11:00 am Sunday, April 24, 2011
We celebrate Jesus’ triumph over death with shouts of, “He is risen! He is risen indeed!” We sing “Alleluia” with angel choirs and believers across time and around the world. We no longer need to live in fear because Jesus goes ahead of us ready to welcome us into a new day and a new life.
Easter Brunch – 9:00-10:45
Join us for Easter Brunch in the Fellowship Hall before or after worship. A free-will offering will be taken and proceeds will support the youth participating in the summer mission trip. Egg bakes, fruit, juice, milk and coffee will be served along with other baked goods.
