Easter and Holy Week

Join us on the week long journey of Jesus’ last days leading up to Easter on Sunday, April 1st.

Palm Sunday – March 25th 10:30 am
We start in the courtyard and walk into the sanctuary with Palms to celebrate Christ’s entry into Jerusalem. We will celebrate the sacrament of baptism for three young children. Then, Children bring their fish banks for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering.

Holy Thursday – March 29th 7 pm Covenant Presbyterian Church
We join with Knox, St Paul’s, and Covenant churches for a joint service of scripture, communion, and Tenebrae, in which we extinguish candles as the story unfolds. Come early for refreshments at 6 pm.

Good Friday – March 30th 7 pm
Our congregation marks the evening with music, prayer, and stations of the cross throughout our building. We bring our own grief and our hopes for the world to lay at the foot of the cross.

Easter Sunday – April 1st 10:30 am
Resurrection Day! We gather to celebrate the empty tomb and our new life in Christ, along with the sacrament of Communion. Stay afterwards for an Egg Hunt.

Plant Seedlings! The day after Easter, Monday April 2nd, we will plant the seedlings we dedicated on Easter. We are partnering with Netiya to go to the Just Food garden of Emmanuel Turner AME Church in South LA – a congregation in a food desert community. We meet there at 10:30 am. Join us!
All ages welcome!


Volunteer At Church

We are always looking for volunteers to share their gifts: greeting at the door, bringing food, serving in mission, helping with maintenance, counting the offering, teaching Sunday School, or reading in worship.

Maybe you have some other gift to offer. Tell us! We would love to partner with you and share in God’s ministry. Sign-up sheet is located in the social hall or contact the church office.
