The Chancel Choir’s spring programs are always interactive, involving the audience in a significant way. A reception will follow in the Parlor. Please join us! Child care is available upon request only (please notify us by May 1).

  4. News : Holy Week Schedule

    April 18 – Maundy Thursday
    7:30pm Worship

    Come remember the intimacy of the upper room and the Last Supper as we gather around the table in communion. Remember the words Jesus gave us as he departed, his agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, his betrayal by Judas, his final hours on the cross.

     

     

    April 19 – Good Friday
    12:00pm Worship
    2:00pm Prayer Walk of the Passion

    Our doors will be open to all who wish to worship on Good Friday at 12:00 noon. At 2:00pm, we invite you to experience “Prayer Walk of the Passion,” an interactive, intergenerational event depicting the transformative moments of Holy Week. I encourage you to take this opportunity to slow down and think deeply about what Jesus accomplished through the cross. This is a wonderful thing for kids and families to do together.
