Holy Week Worship Schedule
April 9-16

PALM SUNDAY

8:45 and 11:00 AM worship services that begin with the reading of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem and a procession with palm branches. All are welcome.

MAUNDY THURSDAY

7:00 PM worship service with a footwashing service as well as a celebration of Holy Communion as we remember the Last Supper. The service ends with a chanting of Psalm 22 as the chancel is stripped bare in preparation for Good Friday. All are welcome.

GOOD FRIDAY

7:00 PM picks up where we left off the night before. We will linger in the 7 last words of Christ and sing songs. As the service progresses we will move further and further into darkness in remembrance of the dark times on Calvary. All are welcome.

EASTER SUNDAY

8:45 and 11:000 AM worship services that celebrate the joy and promise of the empty tomb of Jesus. We will share Holy Communion. There will also be a breakfast served between worship services. All are welcome.



Come and Worship


We would love to have you be a part of our worshipping community. Come as you are.

Usual Schedule

We have two worship services on most Sundays:
8:45 More Contemporary
11:00 More Traditional

Our worship services include communion. All who wish to partake of the body and blood of Jesus are welcome to do so.

Seasonal Emphasis

Holy Week

Holy Week is when we linger in the final days of Jesus' life leading up to the cross and to the empty tomb.

We gather often during the week to remember Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem, the Last Supper (including the institution of the Lord's Supper and Jesus washing his disciples' feet), the condemnation of Jesus, his agonizing death on the cross and his victorious defeat of death on Easter.

Jesus came into this world to do what we could not do in order to bring healing, salvation and life to the world.



Monthly Joint Potluck
May 7

One of the clear messages that came out of our many 1-to-1 conversations with folks is the desire to have some worship services with the entire community. To that end, the church council has decided that the first Sunday of the month will be a joint worship service at 10:00.

In order to have even more time for interaction and community building there will be a potluck following the service. Please plan to stay for a meal after worship. If you forget your dish to pass please come anyway. There is always enough food to go around--remember the loaves and the fishes.
