2022 HOLY WEEK ACTIVITIES

“All are welcome, no matter where you are on life’s journey.”
Please join us this week, on-site or online!

Sunday, April 10 ― Palm Sunday. Luke 19:28-48The Things that Make for Peace. Children and musicians lead us into worship with a Palm Sunday procession to begin Holy Week. We remember Jesus’ triumphal entry even as his enemies begin to plot his demise. Holy Week holds it all: our hopes, our dreams, our fears, our ferocity.

Thursday, April 14  Maundy Thursday―7:00 PM Service of Tenebrae in the Sanctuary. Come together to remember the Last Supper and then the events of Jesus’ passion (his suffering and death) as our deacons lead us in Service of Tenebrae (“shadows”) with the extinguishing of the lights.

Sunday, April 17 ― Easter SundayLuke 23:50-24:12. Easter Joy! Come, join the great “Alleluia!” that breaks forth on Easter morning. This is the heart of our faith: the resurrection of Jesus. Luke’s telling of the story is so tactile and sensory: the rough touch of linen, the cold, hard surface of stone, the sweet, sad smell of burial spices, the bright light of angels announcing, “He has risen.” In their fear and grief, the disciples considered the women’s testimony “an idle tale.” Let’s lean into the tangible good news of Life and dismiss our vaporous fear. This is no idle tale! It is truth and grace!

Sunday, April 24  Second Sunday of Easter. Guest preacher: Frank Lenox.
