Greetings, Brothers and Sisters in Christ!


Holy Week approaches. Here are the events planned at First Presbyterian Church to observe and celebrate this culminating week of Lent and Easter:


U Palm-Passion Sunday: 9:30 am worship with communion is this upcoming Sunday, April 9. We remember Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem; we hear the story of Jesus’ betrayal and death on the cross.


U Holy Wednesday Labyrinth Walk: On April 12, 4-7 pm, our fabric labyrinth will be set up at the Presbyterian Friendship Center for you to use in prayer and contemplation. An average labyrinth walk takes about 30 mins, but you can walk faster or slower, too. We have materials you can use with walking the labyrinth (or using a finger labyrinth, if you are not feeling like using your feet J) to prayerfully engage the Passion and Resurrection stories. Come and try it out.


U Maundy Thursday: April 13, 6:00 pm, we are offering an intimate worship time with communion, remembering Jesus and the disciples in the Upper Room on the night of his arrest, when he gave the new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you.


U Good Friday: April 14, 7:00 pm: Ecumenical worship Tenebrae Service (service of light and darkness) at First Christian Church, alongside folks from our neighbor churches, with music from the ecumenical choir.


U Easter Sunday: April 16, 9:30 am worship with communion. Christ is Risen! Bring flowers for the Blooming Cross; there is an Easter Egg hunt after worship for children.


We look forward to a meaningful week of remembering and celebrating the central story of Christian faith, the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
