The Holiest of Weeks


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,

but in order that the world might be saved through him.

- John 3:16-17

We are about to begin the biggest week in our faith as Christians, Holy Week! Throughout this week we will recount how Jesus rode into Jerusalem instituted the sacrament of Holy Communion at a Seder meal, how he died by crucifixion, and finally how he rose after death. Each year, this week gives me all of the feels. Mixed in with the joy of Jesus' arrival to Jerusalem is the dread of his crucifixion. After the despair of his death, is the eternal hope of his resurrection. This week is certainly a journey! In the midst of all the ups and downs, we are reminded of how much God loves us. A love so deep that God was willing to live among us, and to die so that the world may receive salvation. Join us this week as we experience Jesus' final days together. Palm Sunday- 4/14 Cantata 9 AM Maundy Thursday- 4/18 Seder Meal 7 PM Good Friday- 4/19 Service 7 PM Service, Easter Sunday- 4/21 7 AM – Sunrise Service, 9 AM Traditional Service, 11 AM Contemporary Service.
