Join Us for Holy Week

Palm Sunday, April 2

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.

Wednesday Night, April 5

Regular Wednesday Activities meet at 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

We will have our normal Wednesday night activities: Reach Student Ministry led by Pastor Tre’ & Adult Bible Study led by Pastor Mark.

Good Friday, April 7

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.

Holy Saturday, April 8

Easter Egg Hunt & Cook Out11:30 a.m.

Join us un the church sanctuary to begin with an Easter Story activity.  Then the children will receive instructions for the egg hunt. Afterward, everyone is welcome to join us for a free lunch of grilled hotdogs, burgers, & chips.  Invite your neighbors and friends!

Easter Sunday, April 9

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 our service will include the sacrament of Holy Baptism. (Anyone interested in baptism should contact Pastor Mark.)
