Easter Week Events

Wednesday 5:30 – Our last Vespers service will be on Wednesday, April 5. This will be another quiet service of reflection, silence, music, and prayer. These services have been deeply spiritual experiences all Lent, and our youth group, bell choir, and choir all meet afterwards.

Thursday 6:30 – Maundy Thursday Pot-Luck Church. We will meet in Epworth Hall (downstairs) and begin a unique experience of eating together with readings, songs, and liturgy. It is a pot-luck dinner, so bring a dish to share if you can. We will share the Christ’s Cup and Bread in a modified service of Communion that integrates our meal together with Christ’s words and the events of the Last Supper and his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane as told to us in the Gospel of Matthew.

Friday from 3:00-6:00 p.m. – Good Friday Stations of the Gospel. The church doors will be open for a self-guided experience of interactive prayer and learning stations. The stations will lead pilgrims through the Gospel of Matthew, from Jesus’ baptism, through his ministry and Nazareth, to the events of Holy Week, culminating at the Cross. Each station includes a Scripture reading, a brief reflection, and an interactive object that will lead to a deeper walk with Christ on Good Friday. The journey takes between 30-45 minutes.

Sunday 9:30 a.m. – Easter Celebration. We will gather for a wonderful morning of worship with music from our choir, as well as a brass ensemble. Pastor Robb will share a joyful Easter sermon and all are invited to Communion. There will be a kids’ Easter egg hunt after the service in Epworth Hall.
