Holy Week Services

You are invited to Holy Week Services

 ~ Palm Sunday Worship, April 14, 10:00 am

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week and we gather together for a special worship service.  Sanctuary Singers and Men’s Chorus will be singing.

~Maundy Thursday, Service of Tenebrae, April 18, 7:30 pm

The word “tenebrae” means shadow.  Come hear the story of Jesus’ final hours as he chooses to let the shadow of death overcome him.  this is a quiet, moving service when God’s love and God’s willingness to give his Son for us is made clear.  Because this is a solemn service, we encourage older children to attend with their parents and younger children to take advantage of childcare in the nursery. 

~Good Friday Vigil and Prayer Services, April 19

Beginning immediately following the Maundy Thursday service and continuing until 7:00 pm on Friday, the sanctuary will remain open for those who would lke to enjoy the peace and silence.  You may come to sit, pray, listen to music, and reflect on God’s movement in your life and the world around you.  There will be Prayer Stations set up around the sanctuary for anyone who would like to offer prayers.  A short prayer service will be held at noon and a closing prayer service will be held at 7:00 pm.

~Easter Sunday, April 21

6:00 am:  Sunrise Service behind the Woodstock Academy.  “On the first day of the week, at early dawn, they come to the tomb…and found the stone rolled away from the tomb.”  Come and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the beauty of the early morning.
