Holy Week Movie Recommendations from Pr. Mike 

Pastor Mike recommends watching one or both of the following movies during Holy Week. Jesus Christ Superstar is a Rock Opera originally produced in 1971. Pastor Mike recommends the 2012 and 2018 versions. It’s especially good for teens and adults. The Miracle Maker is a claymation production that is one of the most biblically accurate movies made about Jesus. It’s stunning and is good for adults and children older than 7 years.

Maundy Thursday

On April 14 will have two Maundy Thursday worship opportunities, one at 5:30 p.m. & 7:00 p.m. Tonight we remember Christ’s last meal with his disciples. The central focus is his commandment that we live out the promise embodied in this meal. As Jesus washed his disciples’ feet, so we are called to give and receive love in humble service to one another. The service at 5:30 p.m. will be held in the Fellowship Hall and include a simple meal. This service will be especially designed for children and their friends and families–everyone is invited. The 7:00 p.m. service will be in the sanctuary. Both services will include confession and forgiveness of sin, an option to have your feet or hands washed, and the sharing of the Lord’s Supper.

Good Friday

Join us Friday, April 15 for Good Friday worship at 7:00 p.m. Why do we call this day Good?  Jesus’s determination to offer his life for us is the merciful act of a loving Savior who brings forgiveness to the whole world. At this service we pray for everyone we can think of, and we confess that it is our sin that crucified Christ. If it is helpful for you, you can come forward to reverence the cross as part of your prayer.

Easter 

 Join us Saturday, April 16 at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 17 at 8:40 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. Easter worship. What does it mean to be Christian? Christians are those who are enlivened by their faith that the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ can transform themselves and the world. Each Sunday we gather to praise the resurrection, but Easter is our annual blow-out celebration.
