Ash Wednesday

6:30p | Sanctuary. The season before Easter is called Lent, and it begins on Ash Wednesday. The day is named for the ritual of writing ashes in the shape of the cross on one's forehead as a sign of humbling ourselves before God. We recognize this important day with a quiet, simple worship service, open to the community.

Holy Thursday

6:30p | Sanctuary. Christians observe Holy Week in the days leading to Easter. On Holy Thursday, we commemorate the Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples. Join us for a celebration of Holy Communion in an intimate setting that recalls the friendship and devotion Jesus shared with his followers. Open to the community.

Fri

April 10

Good Friday

6:30p | Sanctuary. Good Friday is a strange name for the day we remember Jesus' crucifixion. "Good" used to connote "pious" or "holy," certainly the sense in which we remember Jesus' death. (Kind of like the Bible was sometimes called the "good book," or "holy book." This somber worship service is nonetheless an important part of our journey toward Easter. We first die in Christ before we are raised in Christ. Even at the depths of our Christian lives, God reaches down to save us. Open to the community.

April 12

Easter

7a, 9a & 10:30a | West lawn and Sanctuary. Unlike the fixed date of Christmas on Dec. 25, the date of Easter depends on a centuries-old formula: It's the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the spring equinox. Regardless of when it's observed, Easter is the pinnacle celebration of Christianity: Christ's resurrection! To quote Wilson Pruitt: "Trees lose their leaves in the fall and go dormant, budding in the springtime. Jesus Christ did not go dormant. He did not go to sleep. He died. And then the impossible happened. Resurrection is a belief that the God of all creation has defeated death and will make all things new, beginning with Jesus, continuing with all of us. The Christian hope does not rest in clouds and harps but in the new creation, in all things being made new." We celebrate with worship beginning outdoors around the fire at 7a, and in the Sanctuary at 9a & 10:30a. Open to all!
