Holy Week Schedule
Easter celebrates our resurrected life in Jesus, but can we understand resurrection if we don't journey to Golgotha and the grave? Make a commitment to draw nearer to God each day during Holy Week. The Rev. Dr. Stuart Hoke preaches.
Mar. 25 at 8, 9, and 11 a.m. Our shouts quickly turn from "Hosanna!" to "Crucify!" on the journey to death and resurrection beginning on Palm Sunday. Childcare provided at 10:45 a.m.
Mar. 25 at 4 p.m. We mark the beginning of Holy Week on this Palm Sunday with the anguished and angular music of twentieth-century composer Kenneth Leighton.
Monday in Holy Week
Mar. 26 at 12:10 and 5:30 p.m. Mary, sister of Lazarus, offered Jesus the best that she had. Whether costly perfume or our commitment to be present at church this week, offer yourself on Monday in Holy Week.
Tuesday in Holy Week
Mar. 27 at 12:10 and 5:30 p.m. What does Jesus mean when he says that those who love their life lose it? Each day of Holy Week leads to the ultimate act of self-denial and how it can change your life and change the world.
Stations of the Cross in Music & Poetry
Mar. 27 at 6:30 p.m. Le chemin de la croix by Marcel DuPré and the poetry of Paul Claudel are an artistic approach of walking the Way of the Cross. Performed by Director of Music Stephen Buzard and Carol Symes.
Wednesday in Holy Week
Mar. 28 at 12:10 and 5:30 p.m. Betrayed by a beloved friend, Jesus knows the pain of abandonment. Commit to be by his side in betrayal, death, and resurrection on Wednesday in Holy Week.
Mar. 29 at 6:30 p.m. There is one day each year called "Maundy" or "mandate." What commandment has the power to transform our lives and change the world? "That you love one another, as I have loved you." Childcare provided at 6:15 p.m.
Mar. 30 at 1:30 p.m. On the cross, we see that love is self-emptying. From the cross, we are judged, and the verdict is forgiveness. Through the cross, God is with us in our suffering. Childcare provided at 1:15 p.m.
Musical Meditations on Good Friday
Mar. 30 at 6:30 p.m. Five African-American Spirituals are the framework for a series of meditations on the death of Jesus and the cross.
Mar. 31 at 8 p.m. Between crucifixion and resurrection is a time of remembrance. At the Easter Vigil, we remember that "in the beginning" we were called into being through love and that in baptism and resurrection we find hope in God's promise that "death no longer has dominion." Childcare provided at 7:45 p.m.
Apr. 1 at 8, 9, and 11 a.m. Love is stronger than death! Easter shows that only death will die and that we are called to resurrection life now and into eternity. Childcare provided at 10:45 a.m.
