FAMILY HOLY WEEK EVENT:

Children’s Ministry hosts a Family Holy Week event and dinner on Wednesday, March 27, from 5:30-7:00pm in Fellowship Hall. Starting with a pizza and salad dinner, activity stations begin at 5:30 and run continuously through 7:00, so come when you can. This is an ongoing event where kids get the opportunity to create and experience their way through Holy Week.

MAUNDY THURSDAY:

Our 6:00pm Taizé-style Maundy Thursday service marks the commemoration of the first communion and the washing of the feet. A quiet service, the music will feature Alex Duke, cellist of our Quartet in Residence, the Burn City String Quartet, playing contemplative pieces by J.S. Bach and Saint-Saëns.

GOOD FRIDAY:

Labyrinth Walk Good Friday at Noon

What must we allow to happen in ourselves to make space for Christ to rise within us? Members are invited to contemplate this question while walking our labyrinth or using available handheld labyrinths. The labyrinth is open anytime our gates are open. Facilitators will be on hand Good Friday noon-1pm to give a brief introduction to the labyrinth and walk with or otherwise support members on their labyrinth journey.

Good Friday Service

At the solemn 6:00pm service on Good Friday, we will read the seven statements that Jesus made on the cross, often called The Seven Last Words. These are drawn from all four Gospels and form a kind of narrative. After each of the scripture readings, the Dayspring Celebration Chorale will sing a spiritual as a reflection on the passage.
