Palm/ Passion Sunday, March 20th, 10:30 a.m.-- The children of the church present a wonderful Palm/ Passion Sunday play followed by a Word from Rev. Brooks Smith about Christ's Mission internationally. We also collect the One Great Hour of Sharing offering this day.
Maundy Thursday, March 24th, 7:30 p.m.-- We gather together in the upper room with the communion of saints, joyfully celebrating Jesus' Last Passover with his disciples. After communion, we sing the hymn "Go to Dark Gethsemane", strip the sanctuary in humble acknowledgement of our own nakedness before the Lord due to our abandoning him as the disciples did, and go out to the Memorial Garden to sing to God to "Abide With Me" over the next three days until Easter.
Good Friday, March 25th, 7:30 p.m.-- We gather with Mary, John and the other women at the cross of Christ, lamenting the horrific consequences of sin before us. We darken the sanctuary, hear a Word from Dr. Dick Sharrett and sing of the "Sacred Head Now Wounded" from "Beneath the Cross of Jesus."
Easter Sunday: March 27th, 10:30 a.m.-- Celebration of the resurrection with brass. Special Music from the choir begins at 10:15 a.m., along with favorite Easter hymns sung by the congregation. Communion as a joyful foretaste of the Kingdom of Heaven will be enjoyed.
