Holy Week at TRUMC

Posted By Pastor on Mar 3, 2016 |


great three days
Thursday, Friday, and Sunday March 24, 25, and 27 form the holiest three days of the Christian year. Known sometimes as Holy Week, these three days are a chance to remember Jesus’ final acts of life, service, sacrifice, and resurrection.

While the powers of the world wanted to crush the dreams and visions of God, Jesus revealed to us the path of love, forgiveness, and grace. The dreams and visions of God could not be erased with a Cross.

Maundy Thursday 6:30 – This strange word means “Commandment.” On this day we remember Jesus command to his disciples to love like he loved. We remember Jesus enacting what we now call Communion. We break the bread and share the cup to re-member Jesus.

Good Friday 3-6 p.m. It is on this Friday that Jesus was crucified. People are invited to come any time between 3 and 6 p.m. to participate in a self-guided tour. Right inside the front door, a booklet will be available for people to pick up. They will then be guided in readings and prayers as they walk along the Stations of the Gospel, remembering Jesus life, teaching, and death.

Easter Sunday. In the South Parking lot we will gather to meet the Risen Christ under the rising sun. It was at dawn that the women found the empty tomb and first encountered Jesus resurrected. After this service, we will share a breakfast inside with pancakes and sausage. Kids will enjoy a fun Easter egg hunt at 9 a.m. before starting a glorious Easter celebration. A brass combo will be a part of the celebration.
