Holy Week

On Maundy Thursday, April 2, we observe Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. Maundy Thursday is often thought of as the day Jesus instituted the practice of communion. In the John 13 account of the Last Supper, Jesus institutes the practice of service through foot washing. We will gather as a community for a meal at 6 pm (basement fellowship hall) and ease into a service (7:00, basement fellowship hall) from the meal. We will have an opportunity to serve and to partake of communion, as well as to pray and hear portions of Jesus’ farewell address to his disciples.


On Good Friday, April 3, we will gather in the sanctuary at 7:00 pm to engage the trial, crucifixion and death of Jesus. There is also a community Good Friday service at Grace United Methodist, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.


Easter 2015 – April 5 is Easter! We celebrate God’s defeat of death and the new life that we find in and through Jesus. Our worship will begin at 10:15.


Easter Celebration Potluck

After our worship service ends, we will gather for an Easter Celebration potluck. As always, we will invite our friends who join us for the Sunday Sack Lunch to join us in a communal meal. Please feel free to invite someone to join you for worship. We all need good news. We all need to hear that God loves us, will walk through hell with us and for us, and that God’s love, not hatred, not evil, has the last word. Joyful worship and a joyful meal are the order for the day!
