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.)
