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, April 14: 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, April 15: 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist
Tuesday, April 16: 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist
Wednesday, April 17: 9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist, followed by Bible Study
Maundy Thursday, April 18: 7 p.m. Jesus holds his Last Supper with his disciples, and sets an example of humble service by washing his companions’ feet, which we replicate — for those who wish — during worship. The meal — in our case the Eucharist — is followed swiftly by Jesus’ betrayal, arrest and trial. We remove all the sacred objects from the church until Easter Sunday.
Good Friday, April 19: 10 a.m. We re-imagine the grief of Jesus’ death by crucifixion as we search for meaning in it.
Easter Sunday, April 21: 8:30 and 10 a.m. The joyous celebration of the Resurrection, a gift of hope to all humanity. The service include anthems by the choir, brought together for this occasion.
