    7:00 p.m.

    Worship & Communion

    On Maundy Thursday, we keep the feast that Jesus shared with his disciples on the night of his arrest. We wash each other's hands as a symbol of blessing and close the service with the stripping of the altar.

    Stations of the Cross

    On Good Friday at the 3:00 o'clock service, we walk the Via Dolorosa (the stations of the cross) by visiting the artwork hung in the sanctuary and share hymn, prayers, and the narrative of Jesus' last hours.

    7:00 p.m.

    Service of Shadows ("Tenebrae")

    At 7:00, we gather for the reading of The Passion of Jesus. Each of the seven sections is followed by silence for reflection and music. The sanctuary darkens, the tomb is slammed shut, and the bell tolls.
