Holy Thursday, Maundy Thursday

April 18th, 6:30 p.m.
The sacrament of Holy Communion will be the center of this worship experience.  But alongside that re-enactment will be the call to claim Christ by living to love like He loves.  The new commandment—from which Maundy Thursday gets its name—is to love one another.  So, come and experience Christ’s willingness to suffer out of love, and remember our opportunity to name Him as our Lord by receiving grace and giving love.
Good Friday
April 19th, 7:00 p.m.
Good Friday is a somber day, and yet there is a sliver of hope in the midst of the despair.  We are confronted with the consequence of our sin, with the brokenness of our lives and souls; we see in His wounds and His death the cost of estrangement from God.  But we also see the grace to heal what has been broken and we humbly bow in awe and tears at the depth of this incomprehensible love.  Join us at the foot of the cross.
April 21st, 8:30, 10:00 and 11:15 a.m.
Easter is the highest celebration of the year for the people of faith.  It should be loud and fast and joyous from beginning to end.  We will celebrate the Risen Christ with praise and passion and joy.  Maybe even a few extra songs would be in order; should the musicians be up to that.  Easter is more for singing than for speaking.  Plus, the communion songs do not need to be somber or reflective, but could be joyous as well.
