HOLY WEEK 2014 WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Observing each part of Holy Week enables us to more fully appreciate and embrace the gift of the Resurrection on Easter Day. Please participate as much as you are able!
Palm Sunday April 13 10 a.m. Holy Week begins here. Our Sunday School children will enter the sanctuary with a procession of palms as we remember Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem for the Passover. Everyone receives a palm! Dedicate the One Great Hour of Sharing Special Offering.
Maundy Thursday April 17 7:30 p.m. We will observe the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, remembering Jesus’ last meal with his disciples and his commandment or “mandate” for them to “love one another.” We will “unlight” candles in the Tenebrae service. The Panther Valley Ecumenical congregation will worship with us, our Confirmation Class will participate, and the tone chime choir will play. This service is a moving and dramatic part of Holy Week!
Good Friday April 18 Noon-1 p.m. at Panther Valley Ecumenical Church; this Community service tells the story of Jesus’ trial and crucifixion. A community choir will sing.
Good Friday April 18 7 p.m. Gethsemane Lutheran Church; their moving service includes a choir and the powerful story of Jesus’ last days.
Easter April 20 6 a.m. Alumni Field Shelter; Community members present the story of the empty tomb, sing, pray, and celebrate the Resurrection as the sun rises. Coffee, and donuts included!
Easter April 20 10 a.m. First Presbyterian Church; Glorious music, glorious flowers, and the glorious
story of Jesus’ Resurrection! “He is Risen, Indeed!”
Although there still may be random piles of snow around and some of the local ponds are still iced over, the calendar says Spring has arrived. The Deacon’s would like to celebrate this long anticipated warmer season, with a Free Lunch on April 12th from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm in the Chapel. All in our congregation and the surrounding community are welcome, so spread the word! Come join us for a variety of tasty soups, sandwiches and chili along with beverages and dessert. If you would like to participate contact any Deacon for information. See you there!
