Holy Week

“[The disciples] brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches they had cut in the fields. Then those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor, David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!’” (Mark 11:7-10, NRSVue)




 

This coming Sunday begins our observance of Holy Week. With Palm Sunday as the opening celebration, we remember Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. While some recognized him as the Messiah, others saw him merely as a rebel without a cause—at least, a cause they could get behind. His kingdom represented divergent values from those of Rome and the religious leaders, so most people distanced themselves from him.

 

Thursday, March 28th, we’ll gather at 6:00 p.m. for a Maundy Thursday service of Holy Communion. We’ll recall Jesus’ last supper with his disciples before sharing in the sacrament.

 

On Friday, March 29th, we’ll host a time of music with the adult choir and an ensemble and contemplative prayer as we recall the Seven Last Words of Jesus from the cross.

 

Easter Sunday, March 31st, we’ll celebrate Jesus’ resurrection as we gather for a full slate of Sunday morning worship services. Our worship and altar team will adorn the sanctuary with Easter Lilies, and the choir will fill the room with the sound of joy as we remember this pivotal event in our salvation. Jesus is risen! He is risen indeed!

 

Unfortunately, spring break falls during Holy Week; however, plenty of people will still be present to share the joy of Jesus’ resurrection. If you will be out of town, don’t forget to join our live stream at 11:00 a.m. or watch it later on Facebook or YouTube. If you will be in town, then be sure to invite your friends.

 

Holy Week and Easter are always meaningful worship experiences; we hope to see you here!
