PALM/PASSION SUNDAY 10:30 AM, March 25
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, March 29
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 30
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 1 (no fooling!)
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. At 9 AM there is an Easter breakfast. Also, following worship, about 11:40 is GraceFeast Sunday dinner.
