Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Please join us for one or all three opportunities to worship with us today:

7AM - Holy Communion
12PM - Bible Study and BYO lunch
7PM - Evening Prayer

On Ash Wednesday, we begin a season of reflection and turning away from destructive paths towards ourselves and others.

The ashes represent our mortality.

The ashes in the sign of the cross remind us that our lives are in God's hands, that he sent his Son to die for us on the Cross and rose again from the dead so that we would have the assurance of eternal life.

Battle of the gods: Lent mid-week series

Lent.jpg

Please join us for one or all three opportunities to worship with us today:

7AM - Holy Communion
12PM - Bible Study and BYO lunch
7PM - Evening Prayer

The goal of this series is to have a life-changing encounter with the true and living God through key Scriptures. We can understand the uniqueness of our Triune God better in contrast to man-made religion. The gods of this world come from human imagination; true religion defies and transcends imagination. In this series, we will not only identify but also celebrate who God is for us.

Together, we will re-experience the creation account, the Exodus, and other biblical events through a new lens—false religion. This will not swell us up in pride but help us grow in faith and thanksgiving for the true and living God.

We welcome you to join in our lively discussion.

Palm Sunday Service

Palm Sunday.jpg

Palm Sunday begins what is traditionally called Holy Week. Also called "Passion Sunday," this service begins with the procession of palms and reflects the contrasting attitudes toward Jesus that were on display during the days leading up to his crucifixion. What begins with "Hosanna!" (Lord, save us) will end with "Crucify, crucify!" We will hear a longer, dramatic portion of the sufferings and death of Jesus this day.

Maundy Thursday Service

Maundy Thursday.jpg

Maundy Thursday occurs on the eve of our Lord’s crucifixion, ushering in the holy three days (Triduum) of preparation for the Resurrection of our Lord (Easter). During this service, we commemorate the institution of the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) and Christ's commandment that we should love one another as he has loved us; the word "Maundy" refers to this mandate.

Toward the end of the service, the altar is stripped—furniture, vessels, and adornments are removed—just as Jesus was stripped before his crucifixion. This prepares us for Good Friday, the continuation of the three-days, culminating with the celebration of the Resurrection of Christ from the dead during our Easter Vigil.

Good Friday Service

Good Friday.jpg

Good Friday continues our observance of the holy three days (Triduum) as we prepare for the risen Christ. The name may come from an older name, "God's Friday," but it is certainly GOOD. It’s not a day to feel sorry for Jesus because of his suffering and death. It is a day to feel good because of the good gifts Christ won for us on this day.

This is also a time we hear St. John's unique account of the crucifixion which is sometimes sung by the choir. The service does not end in a benediction or closure because the service continues the following day at dusk for the Vigil of Easter.

Easter Vigil

Easter Vigil.jpg

The Easter Vigil is a multisensory celebration of the Resurrection of Christ. From beginning to end there is a striking movement from darkness to light, fasting to feasting, grief to gladness, old to new, and death to life. It is a journey that begins with Creation, recalling God’s redemptive acts in history, and climaxing in the greatest triumph over sin, evil, and death—the Resurrection.

Our celebration will begin on the church patio around a fire. From there, we process into the church with candles, we remember our Baptism by being sprinkled from the Font, and we receive Christ’s Body and Blood in Holy Communion. We taste, see, hear, touch, smell, and experience the goodness of God during this special service.

The Easter Vigil is the third of three services beginning with Maundy Thursday, continuing Good Friday, and culminating on the Saturday evening before Easter Sunday. Please join us for this beautiful and powerful service!
