Good Friday: The Seven Last Words
Jesus hung on the cross for three hours on the first Good Friday. We hold an annual vigil during these same hours. While on the cross, Christ spoke seven times. Our vigil centers around these utterances. We use them as a guide for prayer, praise, meditation, and contemplation. All are welcome, some people come for just part of the service. Childcare is available.
March 30, 6:00 p.m.
Good Friday: Outdoor Stations of the Cross
Follow Jesus from his temptation in the Garden of Gethsemane through his sufferings to his death on the cross. This service commemorates 14 biblical events while following a large cross around our property. Physical actions are included at some of the stations. All people are welcome, though you will need to be able to walk over uneven ground. Dress appropriately for the weather. Childcare is not available, since children are fully involved in this liturgy.
April 1, 5:30 a.m.
The Great Vigil of Easter
In this most ancient of Christian services, we gather to hear the story of salvation history as we await the dawn. As the sun rises, we celebrate Baptism and have Communion together. No childcare.
April 1, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Easter Celebration Services
Join us for either of our festive Easter Celebration services. After the second service, stick around for the Easter Feast and kids' Easter Egg Hunt. We encourage members to park at the Lipscomb stadium and take the shuttle over to the church facility. There is childcare for the little ones, but no Godly Play or Sunday School. Please note that the second service begins fifteen minutes later than normal.
