Holy Week is upon us, and this year, it is full to the brim with opportunities for worship and fellowship. This Sunday is Palm Sunday, but this year, I'm so excited to share with you the tradition of beginning Holy Week with a Passion Play. The entire congregation is invited to participate in a dramatic reading of the Passion of Christ which includes candles, drums, bells, and Taize singing.
Join accompanist Julie at 9 AM for an Intergenerational Pickup Drum Circle. You'll learn a simple rhythm to play during our Children's Palm Processional at the beginning of the service. No drumming experience is needed, and all ages are welcome!
There's also great stuff happening after worship; Emily will be holding a short "Worship Workshop" for any children interested in serving as an acolyte at 11 AM. Children younger than 2nd grade will learn more about communion.
And finally, we'll end the morning by going to Aviator Pizza at 11:30 AM for the return of our monthly "Second Sunday Socials," in which we all meet at a family-friendly restaurant after worship for lunch.
Holy Week will continue with a Maundy Thursday Potluck Soup Supper at 6 PM, followed by a Foot-Washing Worship at 7 PM.
On Good Friday, we invite you to experience Intergenerational Prayer Stations of the Cross during an Open House any time between 6-8 PM.
Finally, come celebrate Easter Sunday here at the church! Welcome the dawning of Easter at our Easter Sunrise Bonfire Service outside at 7 AM. If that's too early for you, join us in person or online for our Traditional Easter Worship at 10 AM. This will be our first Easter in the sanctuary since 2019! This service will be followed by a family Easter Egg Hunt.
Beloved, come and fill your Holy Week to the brim with God's love, Worship, and Easter candy as we celebrate that resurrection is happening all around us!
