Easter flower and music dedications are a beautiful way to honor friends, family, and loved ones, whether far or near, living or deceased. Make your donation here.

Prepare the Church for Easter

Thurs., 3/28-Sat., 3/30; and Tues., 4/2 

Just like the Women going to the tomb in the wee hours of the morning, all of us have an opportunity to come and prepare the space for Easter Morning and the great celebration of Easter! 
There is a place for you and the whole family! Please consider how you might be called to be a part of the team as we, too, find the tomb empty and celebrate the Lord's resurrection! 

Sign up here to prepare the church for Easter.


Maundy Thursday Simple Supper  

Thurs., 3/28, 5:45 pm, Commons

Join us for a simple supper immediately before our Maundy Thursday service in the Commons (downstairs). Soup, bread and sides, along with options for our younger members. All ages welcome! If you are available to assist in setting up, serving and clearing, we'd love your help! Click here to sign up.

Maundy Thursday Worship

Thurs., 3/28, 7 pm, Church

Gethsemane Watch  

Thurs., 3/28, 8 pm – Fri., 3/29, 10 am, Chapel and online

As our Maundy Thursday worship concludes, we will begin a “Gethsemane Watch” through the hours of the night. Recalling Jesus’ gathering with his disciples in the garden just before his arrest, we honor Jesus’ charge to “Stay awake and pray.” The Watch will begin in-person at the conclusion of our 7 pm Maundy Thursday Service with the procession of the reserved sacrament to the chapel. The in-person vigil will continue until 10 pm. We will then pray through the night at home. The Watch will resume in-person at 6 am, on Good Friday and conclude at 10 am, just before our Good Friday worship begins at 12 noon. 

All are welcome to attend at any time. To ensure that we have at minimum 2 people present during the watch, we invite you to sign-up for times in the Watch. Select the slot below that best suits your time and location. If the slot you would like attend is filled, you may still attend those in person slots. PLEASE NOTE, all prayers between Thursday at 10 pm and Friday at 6 am will NOT be on Campus. We would like for two people to always be praying; if the slots when you would like to pray are full, please feel free to join in at that time also. 

Sign up for the Gethsemane Watch here.
