Palm Sunday • April 9
8 AM, 9:30 AM & 11 AM, Sanctuary • 5 PM, Worship Center

Palm Sunday observes the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem that was marked by the crowds who were in Jerusalem for Passover waving palm branches and proclaiming him as the messianic king. The Gospels tell us that Jesus rode into the city on a donkey, enacting the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9, and in so doing emphasized the humility that was to characterize the Kingdom He proclaimed.

Maundy Thursday • April 13
7 PM, Sanctuary

Thursday of Holy Week is remembered as the time Jesus ate a final meal together with those who had followed him for so long. Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. The English word "Maundy" comes from the Latin "Mandatum", which means "Commandment" refering to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another. 

Good Friday • April 14
7 PM, Sanctuary

On Friday of Holy Week, we commemorate Jesus’ arrest, his trial, crucifixion and suffering, death, and burial. Good Friday is not a day of celebration but of mourning, both for the death of Jesus and for the sins of the world that his death represents. Yet, although Friday is a solemn time, it is not without its own joy. For while it is important to place the Resurrection against the darkness of Good Friday, likewise the somberness of Good Friday should always be seen with the hope of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Easter Sunday • April 16

Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for? (John 20:15) 

Jesus spoke those words to Mary when she was in the garden on the first Easter morning, unaware that the person she was speaking with was who she was looking for: her resurrected Savior. Through Jesus' resurrection, our search, our pain, our weeping - they are all in the past. For our Savior is risen! The joy of Easter is through the recognition of God's goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation. Join us as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ through worship this Easter Sunday.
