A Holy Week Walk
March 25th – 10:30 a.m.
Our worship this Sunday will begin with a Palm Sunday parade, including cheers and song. Worship will then help us move through the events of Holy Week with Jesus. We will remember his teaching, being anointed, celebrating the Last Supper, washing the feet of the disciples, praying in the garden, his arrest and trial, and end with his walk to the cross.
Maundy or Holy Thursday, March 29th, 7 p.m.
Gather around the table with Jesus and his disciples to remember the Last Supper. Worship will bring us to the table as well. This holy evening is a time to pause before Easter and remember this most sacred moment. Worship will be in the sanctuary.
Good Friday, March 30th at 12:00pm (Noon) at Hope Reformed Church
Join with friends from throughout the community as we join to observe this most holy of days in the Christian faith. Pastors and church leaders from the community will lead this service.
April 1st – Easter Sunday Worship – No Fooling!
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” —1 Corinthians 1:18
The custom of Holy Humor around Easter, is rooted in the musings of early church theologians (like Augustine, Gregory of Nyssa, and John Chrysostom) that God played a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead. “Risus paschalis – the Easter laugh,” the early theologians called it.
How appropriate then that Easter falls on April Fool’s Day this year. All silliness aside, worship will be at 10:30 a.m.
Come, to sing, to rejoice, to laugh and smile. Let the light shine and smell the aroma of Spring. Put on your Easter bonnets and come gather to celebrate what the Lord has done. It is a time for great joy and singing.
Easter Egg Hunt following worship: Children of all ages are invited to an Easter Egg Hunt (indoors) following worship.
