Palm Sunday Services: Sunday, March 24th. 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary

Join us for worship on Palm Sunday as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the start of Holy Week. During worship we will sing “Hosanna'' and wave palms.  At the 10:00 a.m. service, children and youth will be invited to process and wave palm branches during the first hymn.  After both worship services, stick around during coffee hour for a tutorial of how to fold your palm frond into a cross that you can take home with you.

Maundy Thursday Dinner and Worship: Thursday, March 28th. Dinner at 6:00 p.m. Worship at 6:45 p.m.

On Maundy Thursday, we remember the story of Jesus sharing the Passover meal with his disciples and washing their feet.  In this moment, Jesus gave his disciples a new commandment to “love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34). 

Join us Maundy Thursday as we “enter the story” with an interactive worship experience.  We will begin the evening gathered around tables for a meal in Friendship hall at 6:00 p.m.  At 6:45 p.m., we will start worship by inviting each table to participate in the story by washing each other’s hands and serving one another communion.  Next, we will follow Jesus and his disciples to the “garden” (sanctuary) where we will end the worship service with reflective prayer.  We hope you can join us for this evening of worship as we enter into the story of Jesus’ final hours with his disciples. All ages are welcome! Please click here to RSVP for the dinner. You may register by signing up in Friendship Hall by Saturday, March 23rd. The Congregational Life Team would be grateful if those planning to attend the meal could bring a dessert to share (sign up to bring a dessert on the RSVP sign-up sheet).
