Wednesday, April 12, 7:00-7:45pm A Taizé Service of Evening Prayer
The Taizé service draws on the contemplative roots in which silence and reflection are central to worship. Music allows the participants to focus their thoughts on the adoration of God.
Thursday, April 13, 7:00-7:45pm A Service of The Lord's Supper
Gather around a specially set table and receive Holy Communion much as the disciples may have experienced.
Friday, April 14, 7:00-7:45pm A Good Friday Service of Tenebrae
The ancient practice of stripping the Lord's Table and sanctuary demonstrates the desolation and abandonment of the long night in Gethsemane and the following days. As we slowly extinguish the candles, the increasing darkness in the sanctuary will symbolize the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of the hopelessness in the world without God. The church will remain bare until the Easter Vigil, when the process is reversed.

Sunday, April 16, 11:00am Easter Worship & The Flowered Cross
Please bring fresh flowers to decorate the cross as we symbolize the new life that emerges from the death of Good Friday. We look forward to joining together as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.
