Holy Week and Easter 2018

Posted by on Mar 23, 2018 in News | No Comments

At Bethlehem we mark the week proceeding Easter with a number of opportunities for worship and reflection.

Palm Sunday – Join us for the waving Palms to remember Jesus arrival at Jerusalem, followed by a readers’ theater retelling of the Passion. Services at 8:45 & 11am.

Maundy Thursday – We remember the night Jesus was betrayed by sharing a meal downstairs in Fellowship Hall, followed by a simple communion service and the option of foot-washing. Dinner is served at 5:45pm with communion immediately following.

Good Friday – The final hours of Christ’s life are retold in a richly symbolic service sometimes called Tenebrae. Scripture readings and songs are paired with the dimming of light, the stripping of the chancel, and anointing with Myrrh. 7pm in the Sanctuary.

Easter Sunday – Jubilant worship will happen at 8:45 and 11am. In between services the youth group will serve a delicious Easter brunch for donations towards their summer trip.
