Holy Week Worship
Easter is almost upon us and the church’s musicians have been preparing for Holy Week for several weeks. From the high energy of rocks crying out on Palm Sunday, to the prayerful serenity of Maundy Thursday, to the tolling of bells on Good Friday, all these lead us to the resurrection of Jesus on Easter. Join God’s people during these services to commemorate, to glorify, and to thank God for all we have been given. We musicians look forward to celebrating Holy Week with those in the house of the Lord all around the world.
Maundy Thursday: April 18, 6:00 p.m.
Holy Communion around the Lord’s Table

Easter services are THIS SUNDAY at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. If it’s warm (which we’re hoping), we’ll be able to be outside on the new Courtyard for the very first time for the early service. Otherwise, worship will be in the Sanctuary. The 11 o’clock service will contain a number of “alleluias” – R. Thompson’s Alleluia, G. Holst’s Psalm 148, W. Boyce’s Alleluia, and Handel’s Hallelujah.
EASTER BRUNCH takes place between services next Sunday in the Fellowship Hall. Plan to be here at 9:30 a.m. Please bring one of your favorite covered dishes to share with your church family.
The Easter Sunday EGG HUNT for the children is starting at 10:00 a.m. in the Library, and Easter games for the youth start at 10:00 a.m. in Calvin 201.
