Ash Wednesday - 7:00 p.m.
February 22, 2023
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent with a reflective Ash Wednesday worship service that inspires us to consider the meaning of our lives and call us to recommit to our own personal spiritual growth during the days leading up to Holy Week and Easter.
Palm Sunday - 10:00 a.m.
April 2, 2023
This first day of Holy Week, we will celebrate Jesus’
entry into Jerusalem with our children carrying palms. Our choir will offer a special anthem
accompanied by scripture.
Good Friday Tenebrae - 7:00 p.m
April 7, 2023
Tenebrae means “shadows.” We will read the story
of Jesus’ walk to the cross and crucifixion
as we extinguish candles, accompanying him
into the darkness of the tomb.
(following Tenebrae to Easter Dawn)
Our tradition is to take shifts alone or with friends or family in the sanctuary, keeping watch while Jesus is entombed.
Hours: April 7, 8:00 pm - Midnight; April 8, 6:00 am - Midnitht
