Holy Week is a special time in the life of the church. Throughout these days we will have the opportunity to celebrate the high of Palm Sunday through the somber moments of Good Friday. Then, on Easter Sunday, we will rejoice again in the Resurrection of our Lord. We hope that you will make plans to be part of each of these special opportunities to deepen your faith as we move through this very holy time.
Palm Sunday - Traditionally marks the beginning of Holy week. Recalling Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and his journey to the cross.
Holy Thursday Service of Worship – Remembering Christ’s final acts of love and servant hood when we gather at the table.
Good Friday – Traditionally a day of fasting, silence and prayer. You are encouraged to be mindful of this tradition as you go throughout your day.
