Holy Week Events

Palm Sunday

April 14th at 8:30 AM in Friendship Hall and 10 AM in the Sanctuary

This service offers us the opportunity to celebrate Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem and into the remembrance of the final week of his life on earth—walking with him through the depth of sorrow to the light of the resurrection. Come and celebrate!

Maundy Thursday Dinner & Worship - “Light Into Darkness”

April 18 at 7 PM in Friendship Hall to Sanctuary

We’ve created a new experience for Maundy Thursday this year, using some of the elements from past years. Join us in Friendship Hall at 7 PM and enter into the Upper Room where we will have dinner together. Be among the guests as we experience Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples. Then journey to the Sanctuary and to the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus was betrayed and arrested.

This service is meant to move you into an emotional and spiritual place where you can truly value the meaning of the resurrection on Easter morning. A Lasagna Dinner will served for $10 for adults and teens, $5 for children. Children 5 and under are free. You can sign up and pay online, through the office (973) 835-1144 (x11), or in Friendship Hall.

Good Friday Worship Service - “And There Was Darkness”

April 19 at 8pm in Our Sanctuary

“And there was darkness” will be a unique service in which we will name some of the suffering in our culture today (discrimination, addiction, abuse) and hold it up against the 7 Last Words of Jesus on the cross. Congregations, clergy, lay leaders and choirs from FRC and Pompton Lakes will unite for worship. This promises to be a moving service that you won’t want to miss.

Easter Sunday

April 21 at 9 AM & 10:30 AM – Both Services in the Sanctuary

To the sound of our choral voices with brass quartet, we will celebrate the greatest news ever heard—the pivotal point of history— in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is a day of celebration and joy! Invite your friends and family to worship with you. Coffee hour will be offered between the two services. Families are invited to worship together. Activity packets will be provided for children during worship. Nursery care will also be available for children age 3 & under.
