Holy Week

Holy Week began on Palm Sunday, April 14.

We have several opportunities to add meaning to this year's Holy Week journey.

On Thursday evening, April 18, we celebrated Maundy Thursday in a Candlelight Communion and Tenebræ Service, beginning at 7:30. We read the passion narrative in the Gospel of Luke, with hymns and choral anthems interspersed to help us experience the last hours of Jesus' life anew.

A Community Good Friday Service is scheduled to take place at New Hope Christian Church (551 Paxon Hollow Road in Broomall), from noon to 1:15 PM on April 19.

On Easter Sunday (April 21), there will be no Sunday School, but we'll hold a community Easter Egg Hunt at 10:00 that morning. Let us know if you plan to bring a child to participate. We will also not hold our usual Easter Breakfast, but a special buffet will be available starting at 9:30.

Our 11:00 worship service will Celebrate Christ's Resurrection, with flowers and special music, proclamation and prayers.

Blessings on the Journey!
