Because of ongoing global health events, this event has been cancelled.

UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES

These are tentative as our local situation continues to unfold.

Holy Thursday Service of Darkness

Thursday, April 9 | 7:00 p.m. | Sanctuary

On Holy Thursday, we recognize the movement of Jesus from the last supper with his disciples into the garden to pray, and ultimately onto the cross. This is a moving service of scripture readings, reflection, preparation, and remembrance of our Lord Jesus’ suffering, death, and burial that paid the debt for our sin and bought for us eternal life.

Easter Celebrations

Sunday, April 12 | 9:30 & 11:00 a.m. | Sanctuary

If the cross of Jesus was the end of the story (as most thought it was), the human situation is far more bleak than we ever imagined. But it wasn’t the end. When Jesus rose from the dead, it showed us that in as much as we are more lost than we ever imagined, we are more loved than we ever dreamed. When you truly understand the message of Easter, you’ll find things will never be the same. We invite you to use this Easter as an opportunity to bring someone into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. Choose a service that fits you, and together we’ll celebrate the risen savior.
