Maundy Thursday, April 9th at 7:00 p.m.

This service remembers the Last Supper Jesus had with his disciples. Though we will have had Communion on April 5th this is a special day to celebrate it again in the context of the final days leading up to Easter morning. As on Palm Sunday, you will need to provide your own elements of food and drink. We will also have a contemplative prayer/meditation led by our own Lisa Beacham, and musical offerings by church members. The call in/link for this service and Good Friday will be the personal numbers we use for most of our non-worship Zoom meetings. It uses our church office phone number as the Meeting ID.

Good Friday, April 10th at 7:00 p.m.

This will be a traditional Candlelight Tenebrae Service. It will include multiple readers, a recording of the Govans Quartet (last one recorded before the lockdown), a song from Lea Gilmore, and other musical offerings. We will read through the Passion narrative of Jesus and extinguish candles as we go. There will be candles on the screen, but you are also encouraged to have seven candles of your own at home to extinguish as we move through the service.
