Beginning with Palm Sunday, Holy week is a special week filled with poignant stories, meaningful worship, remembrance, and the renewed promise of life transformed and resurrected through love.
All are invited to participate in the various celebrations and events that mark this most important week on the Christian calendar.
Palm Sunday, April 2, 10 am
Begin the week with a joyous celebration of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem with children shouting and people waving palm fronds.
This year we will welcome the Witness Stones Project to worship and meditate on Luke 19:28-42.
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” and Jesus replied, “I tell you, if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
Maundy Thursday, April 6, 7 pm
We mark the night of Jesus’ betrayal with a service of shadows and light. We remember that before he is arrested in the garden, he gives us a new commandment, “love one another,” and institutes what we now call communion, the Eucharist, or the Lord’s Supper.
Easter Vigil, April 6, 8 pm - April 7, 3 pm
Journey with Jesus from his arrest in the garden to his last breath on the cross. One or two congregants hold vigil for an hour through out this time. Click to sign up or find out more on our Easter Vigil page.
Sunrise Service, April 9, 6 am
Gather on the hill behind Woodstock Academy for our annual community sunrise service celebration.
Easter Celebration, April 9, 10 am
Easter is a Living Hope that lives on in us as we joyfully celebrate the Good news of Christ’s resurrection and the promise of life transformed and resurrected in us!
So, if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, … not on things that are on earth. When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory. – Colossians 3:1-4
Easter Egg Hunt, April 9, 11:30 am
All are welcome, especially children, to join in our annual Easter Egg Hunt following our Easter celebration service.
