2017 Passion Week Schedule

April 9, 2017 – Palm Sunday

April 11, 2017 – Passover Seder 6:00 PM (Donations accepted) CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

  • Seder is that famous Dinner called “The Last Supper,” hosted by Jesus for His disciples. It is probable, based on The Gospels, to assume that Jesus celebrated every Seder of His life in Jerusalem. Seder, as the setting for Jesus’ Last Supper, was the event Jesus chose to announce The New Covenant. And it was at this Seder that Jesus asked all of us to do this in remembrance of Him. Many of us have done part of the Seder at our various Communion Services, but the entire ceremony will bring us a profound sense of meaning.

April 14, 2017 – Good Friday Tennebrae Service, 7;00 PM

  • A Service of Darkness. This service is a series of readings and music leading us through Passion week. With each reading a candle is extinguished culminating a a moment of darkness meant to symbolize the darkness of the death of Christ. The service concludes with the lighting of the Christ candle pointing to the resurrection on Easter Sunday.
