Holy Week has been a time of special reflection and celebration in the church since at least the fourth century of our common era. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are central to the church’s existence.

Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, the traditional entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to face the last week of his life. In recent years, the worship service for Palm Sunday has become a mixture of celebration and somber reflection. Such a tone captures the celebration of the crowds as Jesus entered Jerusalem, as well as the cries to “Crucify him!” by the end of the week.

Maundy Thursday is the traditional evening when Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper, stooped to wash the disciples’ feet, and gave the disciples a new commandment that they love one another (John 13:34 -35). The word “Maundy” comes from the Latin word mandatum, which means commandment. On Good Friday the church reflects on the death of Jesus on the cross. Good Friday might have originally been called “God” Friday in recognition of the work of God in the death of Jesus.

Services for Holy Week: Maundy Thursday 7:00 p.m.; Good Friday 7:00 p.m.; Easter Sunrise 7:30 a.m.; Easter Traditional 10:30 a.m.
