  1. Articles : Lenten & Holy Week Happenings & Services

    Wednesday, April 3, 6:30pm – “Lenten Imagery as Seen in Modern & Contemporary Art”
    Led by Ruth Caccavale – Music Room

    Hear a discussion of Lenten influences on art in our modern times. Ruth is a former professor of art with Rutgers University and currently serves as a gallery guide at the Nasher Museum. A gifted teacher, some of you may remember a few years ago the excellent class Ruth taught, along with Monica Rossman, on the music and art of Holy Week. We hope you will join us.

    Friday Morning Prayers, Throughout Lent

    The Congregational Care Committee invites you to pray with them on Fridays at 7:00am. Wherever you are at that hour, take a few minutes to pray for those you know and love, and for the needs of the world. Know that the Congregational Care Committee and others will also be praying at that same time, that we might be bound together as our hearts are lifted to God. Prayer Concerns & Celebrations are included in the worship bulletin.

     

    Holy Week Silent Campus

    To maintain our rhythm of worship and reflection, we do not schedule meetings on our campus during Holy Week. The only groups that will meet are support groups (NA, OA), Bible studies, and groups that support Holy Week worship services. We pray you will join us in this journey: Come by, take a walk, or sit and pray in the Memorial Garden.

    Sunday, April 14 – Palm Sunday
    8:30am & 11:00am Worship

    Children are invited to gather in the Courtyard 10 minutes before each service to line up for our Palm Parade with their Fish Banks for One Great Hour of Sharing.

     

    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

    2:00pm Prayer Walk of the Passion
