Beloved in Christ,
Here is our worship schedule for Holy Week, April 9-16. We might have an Easter breakfast before worship. That it still undecided. I will send an email when I know for sure what’s happening.
PALM/PASSION SUNDAY 10:30 AM, April 9
We start worship in the narthex with a blessing of the palms, followed by a procession of palms around the outside of the church. When we enter the worship space we read Christ’s passion in a readers’ theater.
MAUNDY THURSDAY 7 PM, April 13
Our celebration calls to mind Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. We will move through the main parts of that “night in which He was betrayed,” including; Holy Communion, foot washing and the stripping of the altar, which leads us into the austerity of Good Friday.
GOOD FRIDAY 7 PM, April 14
A sparse and somber worship, called the Triumph of the Cross, including the reading of the Passion of Jesus,
the great Bidding Prayer of the Church and the Adoration of the Cross.
EASTER SUNDAY 10:30, April 16
Our celebration of Christ’s Resurrection blends ancient rites of the Church with current cultural expressions of who we are & who we shall be by God‚s grace. Following worship, about 11:40 is GraceFeast Sunday dinner.
Peace and power to you from Christ,
Pastor Jami Fecher
