Holy Week 2017

April 9, Palm Sunday

9:00 & 10:45 AM
Matthew 21:1-11
Giving Up Popularity

"Hosanna!" the people cried, hailing him as an honored king. The crowds loved Jesus on Palm Sunday, but just a few days later a different crowd was calling for his death and the release of a murderer. Popularity and acclaim in the eyes of others is fleeting, and if we put all our faith in it we will be very disappointed. Instead, God calls us to put our faith in God's unending love and grace -- something that will never go away, and will sustain us through the times when others have abandoned us.

April 13, Maundy Thursday

6:00 PM
Finding Jesus in the Seder

Sit and partake at a table set with traditional Passover items. The meal's symbolic foods will be complemented by spiritual insight.  Pastor Rich and Pastor George will use the Scriptures and some traditional history to weave the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ. This powerful culinary presentation will climax in celebrating communion through the shared matzoh and cup of redemption of the traditional feast.

April 14, Good Friday

12:00-3:00 PM
Words from the Cross

Jesus Christ made seven final statements during his last hours on the cross. These phrases are held dear by followers of Christ because they offer a glimpse into the depth of his suffering to accomplish redemption. Recorded in the Gospels between the time of his crucifixion and his death, they reveal his divinity as well as his humanity. As much as possible, given the approximate sequence of events as portrayed in the Gospels, these seven last words of Christ are presented here in chronological order.

April 16, Easter Sunday

5:53 AM at the Pavilion, then 9:00 and 10:45 AM
John 20:1-18
Giving Up Death

When Jesus rose, he turned the entire order of the universe on its head. The Resurrection shows us that death does not have the last word. God has the last word, and that word is Life. Suffering and death end, but God's Kingdom lasts forever.
