  • MAUNDY THURSDAY WORSHIP

    THURSDAY, APRIL 18TH

    7:00 PM IN THE SANCTUARY

    On Maundy Thursday evening, we focus on the new commandment Jesus gives us to ‘love one another.’ The story of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet is read and we share in ‘the Last Supper’ remembering these last moments before the trial and crucifixion.

  • GOOD FRIDAY WORSHIP

    FRIDAY, APRIL 19TH

    7:00 PM IN THE SANCTUARY

    On Friday evening, we move from the intimate and private setting with the disciples to the very public and humiliating display of ‘justice’ before corrupt power. The story of the crucifixion is read and worshipers leave in darkness. It is a reminder of the hopelessness and finality that was surely sensed among our Lord’s followers. We return early on Easter morning at the sunrise service (7:00 am) to shout the Good News that Death and Hate and Fear are defeated!
