Service of Tenebrae and Communion

Preceding worship, our Deacons invite you to a potluck supper in Chapel Hall.

Tenebrae, Latin for Shadows, is a service of lessons and is accompanied by the gradual extinguishing of light. The readings, preceded by Communion, commemorate the events of Holy Week: Jesus’ betrayal & arrest, His passion, trial & death on the cross. This is a moving & important service that allows us to walk with Jesus in those last days & hours of His life. It prepares us to celebrate the glory & the light of the Resurrection on Easter.

Good Friday, April 6 12 noon

Our adult choir presents a “The Seven Last Words of Christ” by Theodore Dubois

Easter Vigil, April 7

Worship Service 7:30 pm

The Easter Vigil dates to the beginnings of Christianity. This candlelight service keeps the intent of such vigils—hearing the readings, remembering our baptisms and sharing Holy Communion together—but it is about an hour long! Watch and wait with us as we anticipate the joy of the dawning Easter day!
