Maundy Thursday / Holy Thursday March 29th at 6:30pm We will gather in the sanctuary for the Confession and Forgiveness, the Sharing of the Word and the Foot Washing. At the Sharing of the Peace we will process to the Fellowship Hall for our Communion Meal and for a Community Meal together. At the conclusion of the Meal, we will gather in a solemn procession back to the church for the Stripping of the Altar.
Good Friday March 30th at 6:30pm As with all of these services, we will follow the Lutheran liturgy as found in Evangelical Lutheran Worship. For this service, we will center ourselves around the Reading of the Passion according to John, with the traditional Bidding Prayer and Procession of the Cross.
Holy Saturday, March 31 at 10:00 – 12:00 Holy Saturday Activities for Children This time will include hearing the stories of Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection, hands-on activities to reinforce the stories, an egg hunt, and the baking of the communion bread for Easter. All are invited!
The Vigil of Easter We will gather at 6:30 around the new fire of Easter near the church graveyard. We will process with the Paschal Candle into the darken church (which represents the tomb of Christ.) There we will wait as the Easter proclamation is chanted, as we hear several readings from the Old Testament and as we affirm our baptism. Our service will end with this affirmation and will conclude on Easter morning with the announcement of Easter and the singing of a Hymn of Praise.
Worship service begins at 9 a.m. every Sunday morning, followed by Sunday School for adults and children at 10:15 a.m. Join us for fellowship and worship with live music.
