During Holy Week, our church worship services mark — in real time — the most astounding week in the life of Jesus. Those eight days swing from triumph to despair to joy. The rhythm of this week forces us to slow down and, through worship, live with the events we read about.
Palm Sunday, March 25: 8:30 and 10 a.m. Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem is greeted by excited crowds, but he knows his actions will provoke those in authority.
Monday. March 26: 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist
Tuesday, March 27: 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist
Wednesday, March 28: 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist, followed by Bible Study
Maundy Thursday, March 29: 7 p.m. Jesus holds his Last Supper with his disciples, when he sets an example of humble service of washing his companions’ feet, which we imitate during worship. The meal — in our case the Eucharist — is followed swiftly by his betrayal, arrest and trial. We remove all the sacred objects from the church until Easter Sunday.
Good Friday, March 30: 10 a.m. We re-imagine the grief of Jesus’ death by crucifixion as we search for meaning in it.
Easter Sunday, April 1: 8:30 and 10 a.m. The joyful celebration of the Resurrection, a gift of hope to all humanity.
