Palm Sunday

We will conclude our Lenten series on all the road signs of life.  Join us as we travel and are reminded that the signs we see along the road can encourage and inspire our relationship with God. There will be fellowship after the 7:30pm service.

Holy Wednesday

April 17, 11:30am and 7:30pm

 

This service will begin with soup and rolls at 6:30pm.  Great food to gather us together before we share Holy Communion and lift up Jesus’ command to offer sacrificial love to others.  The service will be in the Fellowship Hall.  There will be special music and the Contemporary Praise Band.  Please join us.

Maundy Thursday

April 18, 7:30pm

 

This service will be a veneration of the cross.  The emphasis will be on the powerful love that God shares and offers through His Son on what was to be an instrument of torture and death.  This day reminds us that hatred and death do not have the last word, but love and life from God always WINS.

Good Friday

April 19, 12-noon

 

For this solemn service you are invited to experience the account of our Lord’s Passion in story and song.  There will be scripture readings and congregational hymns, Chancel Choir anthems and a special soloist.  You will not want to miss this new service.

Good Friday

April 19, 7:30pm

 

The Easter Vigil is a powerful service that moves us through four parts - fire, readings, renewal of Baptism and Holy Communion.  We also literally move from outside to the Fellowship Hall, to the entrance of the sanctuary and then to the altar.  In the midst of that in between time of waiting and anticipating please join us for this celebration.

Holy Saturday

April 20, 7:30pm

 

Christ is Risen will echo loud and clear this morning.  Eyewitness news will report that Jesus is not dead but resurrected to new life.  And his life, in spite of all we may experience, re-frames absolutely everything to a God-given abundant life here and now.  His resurrection is the promise, pledge and guarantee of what is still happening everywhere.  The choir will sing; there will be special music and all kinds of surprises.  This is the highest holy day for Christians and I encourage all of you to join us to worship and give thanks to our awesome God.

Easter Sunday

April 21, 8:15am, 9:15am and 11:15am
