Help Us Explore the Mystery of Holy Week – 4/14 to 4/21

4/20 – Tenebrae (Service of Shadows) – 7 PM

We invite you to accompany us on Holy Saturday for a Tenebrae service.  Literally meaning a “service of shadows,” this observance is a powerful reminder of how easily the positive lights of this world can be extinguished, and how quickly the darkness can spread.

Through scripture readings, hymns, and reflections, we walk with Jesus through his trial and death on the cross.  As the service progresses, we extinguish the lights of the sanctuary and remove the decorations, to remind us of the bare darkness we would face without the Light of the World among us.  Please come and share this moving time with us.

4/21 – Easter Sunday/Continental Brunch – 11 AM/9:30-10:30 AM

From the barren darkness of Tenebrae on Saturday, we emerge in joyous celebrations of the triumph of the resurrected Light of the World over darkness Easter morning.  Through music, worship, and reflection, we begin to explore what it means to be God’s people, the body of Christ, and how we can reflect the Light of the World in a world that grows broken and dark.  Come early and enjoy a continental brunch before the service, from 9:30 to 10:30.  (There will be no bible study on Easter Sunday.)


Olympic View Community Church welcomes all of God’s children, regardless of identity, to participate fully in the life of our faith community.

Here at Olympic View…

We seek to bear witness to the radically transforming power of God’s love.

Toward that end…

We seek to build a community, grounded in love, whose members empower each other to extend that love to others.

We seek God’s wisdom, revealed in the living Word and the Spirit which speaks to us still.

We seek to be peacemakers by working for justice for all people.

We seek to harness our unique spiritual gifts, as individuals and as a body that our faith would make a difference in our city, our nation, and our world.What does it mean to have a cup that overflows? What does it mean to really show love through grace and mercy? That’s what we’ll be exploring this week as we examine the “Sermon on the Plain.” Join us as we share and worship together! thanks

    Wondering if anyone in your church remembers Lilyan Crider. She was my sixth-grade teacher, and I just found out she died 13 years ago, and her memorial service was at your church.

    i previously attended Olympic View church when my family was growing up in the 60s & 70s. Now that my family is grown and my wife has passed on, I would like to get back to the Lord.

    I am a shut-in and using a walker. Would that create a problem?

    Kelly,

    I’m glad you are seeking to get back to your faith and your faith community.

    I would be happy to visit with you and we can discuss how we can reconnect you with Olympic View.

    Feel free to email me at vicarglenn [at] gmail [dot] com or you can reach me at the church Tuesdays through Fridays, generally from 10 AM to 2 PM.

    I hope to hear from you!

    Blessings,

    Are you having a Christmas Day service?

  7. Harriet Koscho

    No, we don’t have a service on Christmas Day, unless it’s a year where Christmas lands on a Sunday. We do have a candle-lit Christmas Eve service on December 24 at 4:30, where we end up in a circle of light singing “Silent Night” together.
