April 5, 2020
Our fellowship will be celebrating Palm Sunday, when Jesus made His powerful entry into Jerusalem riding in on a donkey over the coats and palm branches of the adoring crowd. We will begin in our parking lot and process around the building with palm branches, celebrating Jesus arrival in Jerusalem and our 'arrival' at Holy Week. In Jerusalem Jesus drove out the moneychangers and kicked over the tables of the merchants who sold the sacrificial animals for temple worship. Jesus, after cleansing the temple declared it a house of prayer for all nations, and thus began his teachings amidst the people who were preparing for the Day of Atonement, the Passover Feast, in Jerusalem.
The services will be at

Maundy Thursday: Footwashing & Communion Service
Thursday, April 7, 2020
We would like to invite you to a Holy Week Maundy Thursday service. This service portrays servant leadership as modeled by Jesus Christ. On the night before He was tried, He washed his disciple's feet. This is a job that only the lowest of household servants would do, to clearly demonstrate to those who would lead that they must serve all who follow. We encourage you to be a part of this poignant moment in our Savior's life and come away with a whole new view of what leadership truly is. The Service of footwashing is accompanied by a Communion remembering the Last Supper, at which this evening is set.
The service this year will be at 7 p.m.

Good Friday : Stations of the Cross
April 8, 2020 @ 12 Noon & 7 P.M.
You are welcome to join us for our Good Friday Service. Relive Christ's great love for us through his obediently suffering the indignity of a sham trial and the horrific punishment of a Roman crucifixion. Every single torture He endured through his wounds and slow agonizing execution bought our freedom from sin and death. You will not walk away from this service unchanged or unmoved.
Our 12 Noon liturgical celebration of the Stations of the Cross will help us to walk through the last steps of Jesus, as we follow from station to station with the visual's from The Passion of the Christ. Prepare for the Crucifixion and Death of Jesus in this powerful, visual presentation of the 'stations' he walked from the trial to the hill of Calvary.
At 7 PM we will have a service which is a Reader's Theater piece, called "Were You There: Voices from around the Cross." Written by Fr. Phil Eberhart, it is a first-person testimonial of those who Jesus encountered on the way to and during the Crucifixion. You will hear the (fictional) testimony of Malchus, the guard who got his ear cut off by Peter and who was healed by Jesus! ... of one of the servant girls in the High Priest's courtyard who identified Peter and witnessed his denial of Jesus;... of the Soldier who placed the Crown of Thorns on Jesus' brow; ... of Claudia, the wife of Pilate, who warned him from a dream, not to have anything to do with the "just man." ... of the Thief who repented, on the cross next to Jesus; ... of John, the beloved Disciple and of Mary, the Mother of Jesus and finally, of Joseph of Arimathea, the rich pharisee who "loaned" Jesus his tomb for three days (and subsequently for two thousand years, as a pilgrimage site!) Come and hear these testimonies of those who "were there" at the Cross.
