Services This Holy Week

Categories: Uncategorized

  • “Holy Week” is the week from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
  • Our Good Friday worship will be at 10:00 am. Members of Pax North Church will join us!
  • Our Easter morning worship will be 10 am, as usual. We will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection in the Lord’s Supper. An Easter brunch will follow – please bring finger food, enough to share with others.  (No time of verbal announcements that day.)
  • Our Evening worship is cancelled for Easter Sunday.
  • Colours in the sanctuary change to black for Good Friday, not to make it feel like a funeral but rather to show how serious it is that our Lord had to die for our salvation. Then the colours change to white for Easter – to celebrate the empty tomb! Consider talking with our children about the colours.
