Special, Informal Worship Opportunities
Maundy Thursday Agape Meal and Worship - Thursday, April 17 from 6:00 – 7:15 at the Seminary building. As Jesus gathered with his disciples for a “last supper”, we will gather to eat a meal, remember Jesus’ last supper and his teachings in the upper room, and share the communion bread and chalice around our supper tables. Agape is the ancient Greek word for self-giving love.
Community Good Friday service, 12:05 – 12:50 p.m. on Friday, April 18. Join friends from our church and other churches for a 45-minute service of readings, prayers, music and sermon as we remember Good Friday and give thanks for Jesus’ sacrifice for us. The service is designed so you can attend over your lunch hour. It will be held at the United Methodist Church, with our pastors and the Methodist pastors leading.
