WORSHIP

MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE

April 18, 7 p.m., Sanctuary
Commemorate the Last Supper in which Jesus gave several final commands to his disciples – to love one another, serve one another and to remember him through the breaking of the bread. We will join together in worship and communion as we remember Jesus' last meal with his friends. Childcare is available for 3 and under.

GOOD FRIDAY TENEBRAE SERVICE

April 19, 7 p.m., Sanctuary
Good Friday services follow a tradition dating back to the Eighth Century, commemorating the final hours of our Lord’s life on earth before dying on the cross. Worship spaces are commonly lit with candles that gradually extinguish throughout the service to symbolize the fading loyalty of Jesus' disciples and friends. The gradual darkening of the church portrays the diminishing light of the world as Christ was departing from it. Childcare is available for 3 and under.

Refuel

March 27 & April 3, 5:30 (dinner), 6:20 (study), Family Life Center
There is no better time than the season of Lent to explore the ideas of the late Henri J.M. Nouwen, a Catholic priest, educator, and deeply compassionate minister. Join Rev. Casey Orr for a 2-week series on the spiritual life as Henri Nouwen imagined it in his book, "Reaching Out." For 2 weeks, we will consider what it looks like to reach out to our innermost selves, to our fellow human beings, and to our God.

EASTER WORSHIP WELCOMERS

Help us provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for Easter worshipers as we celebrate Christ's resurrection from the dead! Christ's death and resurrection mean that all are welcome at the table of our Lord, that all hurts are being healed, that all broken relationships are being reconciled. That is a joy that we can't help but share with those who might need to hear it, and we hear so much better when we feel seen, valued, and welcomed into a worship space. So let's do this for our neighbors and guests and members alike this Easter!
