"Upcoming Events"




This month we would like to highlight our upcoming Easter events to give everyone time to prepare and eagerly anticipate this holiday season. Our theme for this year is "It's not Over". As we get closer to the season, we will put out more detailed information and get flyers and posters to spread all around and invite friends, but here is just a taste of what is to come.


Palm Sunday 4/14/2019, 10:30AM:
 This service marks the beginning of Holy Week
: Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–9), when palm branches were placed in his path, before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. It is a morning worship service that will also be celebrated as the first Sunday with our new Pastor!


Maundy Thursday 4/18/2019, 7:00PM
Footwashing, Communion, and Worship. Remembering the last supper:
This year our first Easter service will be on the first Maunday Thursday, April 18. As spoken to in John 13:1–17 This ordinance has been practiced by the church since it was first instituted by Christ. The ordinance is significant because it speks to our pride. The command of Christ in John 13 is accentuated by strong words: "you also ought to wash one another's feet" and "you also should do as I have done to you". We will start off the evening worship and communion. After, we will split into mens and womens groups and spend time in song, prayer and footwashing.

Good Friday 4/19/2019, 7:00PM
A Passionate service of mourning Christ’s death
: Friday evening April 19, we will have a dialogue/theatrical performance that helps us remember the sacrifice Christ gave.
