On this holiest of weeks in the Christian calendar, come and journey with Jesus
to the cross and then celebrate the joy of the resurrection on Easter Sunday!

  • Maundy Thursday – Thursday, April 6th – 7:00 pm - Gather together and remember Jesus’ Last Supper as we witness the powerful humility and love in a re-enactment of Jesus’ foot-washing.  Celebrate around the table in the sanctuary as we receive the bread and cup in the sacred sacrament of Holy Communion.

    Good FridayFriday, April 7th – 7:00 pm - Feel the power of this Tenebrae Service of Shadows. Hear the last words of Jesus read and reflected on followed by the extinguishing one by one of the candles. As the room grows darker, we are led to the climatic sealing of the tomb.

    Easter Sunday – Sunday, April 9th – 10:00 amRejoice and Celebrate the joy of the Resurrection! Worship together with excitement as we hear the Resurrection proclaimed through the beauty of the choir and the bells! And an Easter Egg Hunt will take place during the service during the children’s message time!
