Holy Week: Following Jesus' Journey
Holy Week walks us through the last week of Jesus' life — a week that changed the world! It begins on a hopeful Palm Sunday and then follows Jesus’ dark journey through Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday before it ends triumphantly with Easter. Holy week challenges us to wait in the valley between Hosanna and Hallelujah and follow Jesus from his entry into Jerusalem to the Upper Room through Gethsemane to Calvary and eventually into the wonder of the empty tomb.
Palm Sunday: Jesus is welcomed into Jerusalem by crowds who celebrate him as King, but he also knows that the support of the crowds will be short lived. God has made it clear that his path is not a triumphant one. Jesus already knows he will be rejected, suffer, and die.
Worship on March 28:
9:00am - in-person sign up here
10:00am - online here.
Maundy Thursday: On this night, Jesus gives his disciples a new command (a mandate) to love one another as he has loved them. But first, he trans-forms the Passover Meal into the Lord's Supper, inviting his followers into a deeper relationship with himself and with God.
Worship on April 1 at 6:30pm online here.
Good Friday: We remember that Jesus was unjustly tried, cruelly tortured and crucified alongside criminals. On this day, we grieve our sin and the brokenness of our world, and we remember that it was God's fierce and faithful love that saves us and heals our brokenness. Take time today to go through our prayer stations, the last of which walks us through the events of Jesus' last day.
Prayer stations available
in-person: 7-9am & 4-6pm, online: anytime here
Easter Vigil: As Jesus' body rests in the tomb,
his followers waited in silence. Jesus has died
— along with their dreams for a good future.
This is a day of quiet meditation as Christians contemplate the darkness of a world without a future and without hope apart from God and his grace. At our Holy Saturday worship service, we rehearse the Story of God, reminding ourselves of God’s faithfulness, as we wait in hope for Easter morning. Worship on April 3 at 6:30pm online here.
