It’s already time to start looking ahead to plans for Holy Week. Will you join us?
Sunday, April 14
The 8:30 and 10:45 am Palm Sunday worship services traditionally start with a palm-waving procession as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. We’ll also celebrate First Communion for our 2nd and 3rd graders at the 8:30 service.
Wednesday, April 17
No evening worship.
Thursday, April 18
A quiet Maundy Thursday worship service occurs at 6:30 pm and includes stripping the altar to remember the trial of Jesus.
Friday, April 19
Your choice of Good Friday worship services at 12:15 pm and 6:30 pm, which end in silence and darkness, as Jesus’ light went out of the world.
Additionally, we will join our Partners in Faith at Reformation Lutheran for a Good Friday Neighborhood Walk. Similar to the Stations of the Cross, the group will stop at sites in Reformation’s Holy Ground that demonstrate signs of despair and transformation. Scripture will be read, and our group will sing and pray together, uplifting the symbol of the cross in the heart of the city. Meet at Mt Zion at 2:30 pm to carpool to Reformation (3806 W Lisbon Ave), or just meet us there at 3 pm on April 19.
Sunday, April 21
Easter worship at 8:30 am (traditional music) and 10:45 am (contemporary music). Between services, approximately 9:30, our youth group will serve brunch, collecting free-will donations to help fund their trip to Holden Village this summer.
