Seasonal Worship Services
Easter 2019


Maundy Thursday Family Meal and Worship -
Thursday, April 18 | 5:45 – 6:45 p.m.
Good Friday Family Meal and Worship -
Friday, April 19 | 5:45 – 6:45 p.m.

This is a wonderful way to bring your young family to Holy Week services and to hear the stories of Jesus’ Holy Week journey.

A meal will be served at both worship gatherings, with a little heavier meal on Thursday and light finger foods on Friday.  Each meal will be followed by a brief family worship service in the Chapel. The setting … casual.  We’ll listen to a Bible story and a message, sing, and have a chance to participate in activities for each day as we learn more about what Jesus did for his friends and for all of us.  Questions? Contact Mary Merulla.

Maundy Thursday | Foot-Washing, Holy Communion, and Stripping of the Altar
Thursday, April 18 | Noon and 7:00 p.m.

We remember Jesus washing his disciples’ feet (foot-washing), his Last Supper with the disciples (Holy Communion) and his arrest and being stripped of his dignity (the Stripping of the Altar).

Good Friday
Friday, April 19 | 7:00 p.m.

As Jesus approaches the darkness of the cross and grave, we hear the Passion from the Gospel of John and descend with him into death.

Saturday Easter Vigil
Saturday, April 20 | 4:00 p.m.

This is an interactive, child-friendly worship service with sights and sounds to engage all ages. From the Easter fire, the light of Christ grows brighter as we hear stories from the Old Testament and then celebrate the joy of Easter with Baptisms and Holy Communion. Ice cream will follow worship.

The Resurrection of our Lord
Sunday, April 21 | 8:15 a.m. & 10:45 a.m.

With jubilant music and praise we celebrate Jesus’ victory over death and the grave with the return of the “Alleluias”, Holy Communion, and the good news of the Resurrection.
