Holy Week at Redeemer

Palm Sunday, April 10

Worship Service at 10:45 a.m.

Palm Sunday, or “Passion Sunday,” acknowledges the momentary elation of the followers of Jesus as He rode into the city of Jerusalem one week prior to Easter Sunday.  Redeemer’s children help us celebrate this day with a processional of waving palm branches.

Good Friday, April 15

Tenebrae Service at 7:30 p.m.

On Good Friday, we remember Christ’s suffering and death.  His self-sacrifice is good to us who believe because it paid for our debt of sin and opened the way for our reconciliation with God.
The Service of Tenebrae (“shadows”) uses the gradual extinguishing of the lights and candles to symbolize the flight of the apostles as well as the darkness and disturbance that accompanied Christ’s passion.  The central purpose of the service is for us to encounter the reality of Christ’s death and admit our part in it.

Afterward, everyone is welcome to join us for a free lunch of grilled hotdogs, burgers, & chips.  Invite your neighbors and friends!

Easter Sunday, April 17

Easter Sunday is the most glorious of all days and begins the Christian season of Eastertide, the season celebrating the fact that Jesus is alive, and death has been conquered!  This is critical because the Christian hope of eternal life is contingent upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The Easter season lasts for fifty days and centers on the resurrection appearances of the Lord between Easter Sunday and His ascension.

Easter Worship Service at 10:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

This year we will have a family service where the children remain with parents for the worship service. Activity packets will be available for the children. (Childcare will be available for those who need it for their toddlers. Look for the sign in sheet in the hallway.)
