Just because we can’t be together physically this Easter season doesn’t mean we can’t still worship together online and journey through the holy days of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter together! Join us for any or all of the following worship opportunities this week:
7:00 PM Worship
On Maundy Thursday, Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with His disciples. The Passover meal retold the story of God delivering His people out of slavery and bondage – the same thing that Jesus was going to do for us through His coming death on the cross.
We will join together online for an interactive Passover experience that you can be part of, too! We encourage you as you join in the service to prepare some simple symbols of the Passover meal to eat as we celebrate together:
- Something bitter/salty
- Something sweet
- Something chewy
- Unleavened bread (crackers, pita, tortillas – or make your own! We’ve included a recipe below.)
Simple Unleavened Bread
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup warm water
2 Tbsp honey
Mix dry ingredients well and set aside. Dissolve the honey in the warm water, add the oil, then the dry ingredients and mix well. Knead, but don’t overdo it. (It doesn’t take much!)
Divide in half and cover with a tea towel. Let rest for 10 minutes. Now flatten each ball with the palm of your hand or rolling pin to approx 1/4 in. (It will be quite springy, do the best you can.)
Bake in oven preheated to 325° for 17-20 minutes.
On Good Friday, we will recount the story of Jesus’ arrest, trial, crucifixion, and death. Pastor Rob and Pastor Matthew will present the account as complied from all four Gospels, extinguishing candles as the story is read. This service will be broadcast multiple times on Good Friday so you can tune into the time that works for you.
One Service | Four Times
Good Friday Prayer Vigil
Join us in prayer starting on Good Friday through Saturday.
If ever there were a time when we needed some good news, it’s now! Praise God that even in the midst of chaos and fear, He is greater!
That first Easter morning, the disciples were at home and hiding for fear of what might happen to them if they went out. Sound a little familiar?? But the good news of Easter is that Jesus has conquered over the worst that could happen to us and now we don’t need to fear death, Satan, or sin’s power over us.
Our worship services will both be broadcast additional times on Easter. Pick the time that works for you and your family and celebrate the risen Savior with us on Easter!
