Holy Week Schedule
Sunday, April 9 at 8:15 & 10:30 AM
6:00 PM Easter Cantata
Our Palm Sunday worship includes
distribution of palms at both services. Both
children's and adult Sunday School classes will meet at 9:00 am. A joint choir with Arlington St.l URC will perform an Easter Cantata at 6:00 pm.
Thursday, April 13 at 7:00 PM
The service will include a celebration of Holy Communion and the Tenebrae readings and extinguishing of
candles. The United Methodist Book of Worship describes the service of Tenebrae
in this way. A Service of Tenebrae, or "Darkness," is based on a
twelfth–century late night/early morning service and is an extended meditation
on the passion of Christ. The service includes the alternating of readings of
the passion of Christ taken from the gospels with the extinguishing of candles
until even the Christ candle is removed briefly. This is a very meaningful and
powerful way to remember the death of Christ in preparation for the celebration
of Easter joy.
Sunday, April 16 at 8:30 &
We will celebrate Holy Communion
at the 8:30 am service and the choir will sing at both services. There will be no Sunday School classes on
Easter. A fellowship time with refreshments will be hosted between the services.
