Experience Holy Week in community

Holy Week is the week beginning on Palm Sunday through Easter.  Here are the events of Holy Week.

Palm Sunday (March 24): we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  The crowds waved palms and sang “halleluiahs.”  We will have a parade with the children to recall that entry.  This day begins the last week of Jesus’ earthly life.

Maundy Thursday (March 28): We remember Jesus’ last Supper with his disciples as we celebrate Holy Communion and are reminded of Jesus’ words to the disciples.

Good Friday (March 29): On the day that Jesus was crucified we recall the event by walking the stations of the cross.  The church will be open from 2 pm to 6 pm for individual meditation, and everyone is invited to come and reflect of the path to the cross.

Holy Saturday (March 30): Our prayer vigil will cover the hours of 10 am to 2 pm.  During this time, we are asking individuals to pause for a half hour in their daily schedule and pray at their home.

Easter (March 31):  Alleluia!  Christ is Risen!  Our worship service tells with story of Jesus’ resurrection in song and word.

Easter Egg Hunt (March 31):  Our children come together for a traditional Easter egg hunt in our courtyard, after the worship service.
