Holy Week - 2019

PASSION/PALM SUNDAY

We shout a joyous “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!” as we celebrate Jesus's entry into Jerusalem. (See Matthew 21:1-11 NRSV.) The worship service ends on a somber note as we anticipate the events to come during Holy Week.

Christ’s commandment given at the Last Supper is that his disciples should love one another. This service marks the night our Lord was betrayed. Childcare available in the library.

GOOD FRIDAY TENEBRAE

This beautiful, somber service of traditional music, scripture and prayer commemorates Christ’s death and burial. The people depart in darkness to await the brightness of the Day of Resurrection. Childcare available in the library.
