Procession of Palms
Join us on Palm Sunday as we celebrate that start of Holy Week and the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem with a procession of palms at the 10:30AM worship service. The palms will be saved for Pentecost Sunday and burned in a fire pit out front to use for Ash Wednesday the following year.
Communion & Tenebrae
Join us on Thursday evening for a Maundy Thursday Communion & Tenebrae service. Tenebrae is an ancient service that invites awed meditation and prayerful self awareness. Worshipers will enter and leave the sanctuary in silence. The service commemorates the night that Jesus and his disciples were together for the last time under the close approaching shadow of the cross.
During the first part of the service we will celebrate communion after a short homily. Then during the singing of a hymn we will strip the paraments from the chancel space and move into the Tenebrae service. There will be 7 readings encompassing Mark’s full passion narrative ending with Christ’s death; 7 hymns or anthems; and seven candles extinguished. Left in the darkness we wait for the “strepitus”-- a loud noise representing the closing of the tomb.
ALL ARE WELCOME
