The most holy week of the year is upon us. The week has always contained every emotion that we humans can feel, ending with the most hopeful and rejoicing of feelings.
I am, of course, referring to Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday, April 9. On this day, we will focus on the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, even though He knew that a cross awaited Him. As has been the custom in churches around the world, we will begin the 10:30 a.m. service with a Palm Processional led by the children of the church.
Immediately following the 10:30 a.m. service, we will have our annual Easter egg hunt. As always, if the weather is not very nice, we will make arrangements to have the hunt in the building.
Our Maundy Thursday service will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 13 in the Sanctuary. This is the service that recalls the Last Supper that Jesus had with His disciples in the Upper Room. We will serve Communion on this evening, and it is always a very meaningful service.
Finally, our great celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord will occur on Easter Sunday, April 16. As in the past, we will have two identical services in the Sanctuary at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
I hope that you will be able to attend all three of these very special services. If you have company on any of the days of the services, bring them with you to worship.
As always, I look forward to seeing you, especially in worship.
