Holy Week Services
Monday, March 29, is the beginning of Holy Week, the week before the crucifixion and the resurrection. During this week, we focus on the final week of Jesus’ life and its impact on the disciples.
The Maundy Thursday service on Thursday evening, April 1, at 6:00 provides the opportunity to see the events of that evening through the eyes of the disciples. As they gathered around the table, the disciples were challenged to find new meaning in familiar rituals and to integrate a new commandment into their lifestyle. As we gather together on Thursday, we attempt to more fully understand the words Jesus spoke to the disciples and the words he speaks to us today.
The Good Friday service on Friday evening, April 2, at 6:00 provides the opportunity to sense the feelings of despair, discouragement, and disillusionment of the disciples as they witnessed the death of their hopes and dreams hanging on a cross. The suffering of the cross was an essential part of the victory of the resurrection. The disciples did not grasp that concept of faith. As we gather together on Friday, we attempt to comprehend the redemptive nature of suffering.
The Easter Sunday morning service, April 4, at 10:30 provides the opportunity to celebrate the resurrection of the Lord and its significance for us as disciples today. Although the disciples did not, at the time, fully understand the significance of all that was happening, the light of the resurrection illuminated their minds and hearts, changing them forever. The resurrection holds the same promise for us, as we allow it to transform us and renew us. As we gather together on Easter Sunday, we allow the resurrected Lord to speak to us, comfort us, strengthen us, and unite us.
