Special Services for Holy Week:
Maundy Thursday -April 17th 7:00 PM - A Taize Service. Taize is a meditative service done in a sacred space using low light or candlelight. The service is designed to promote peacefulness and calming meditation incorporating quiet easy songs. Table communion and anointing/prayer for healing will be offered during the service. It will be a time to reflect upon the passion and gifts that Jesus gave to us, so we might better know and feel connected to God.
Good Friday April 18th, 7:00 PM - A Tenebrae Service of remembering the awful death of Christ our Savior, though he had done nothing wrong; in fact, he had only done good for people. Come and experience the abject poverty of those human actions and the sin which caused it. Come and seek to understand the human condition, and the sin which is still in this world.
Easter - April 20th - Our 8:00 AM morning service takes place outdoors in the grove.  A variety of instruments will provide music as we gather to celebrate the resurrected life of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and our promise of life with him forever. Come and celebrate the goodness of God and nature as we worship together.  
Afterward, we will go indoors and partake of light breakfast goodies until our main Sunday service begins at 10:00 AM in the sanctuary (please note the earlier time than usual). We gather together rejoicing, remembering and celebrating the main event of our faith - the Resurrection!  Please join us. Everyone is welcome!

Thursday the 17th.
