In our lives of faith, there are many times when we feel like we have lost something important—when we have lost hope, lost faith, lost relationships, lost perspective, lost priorities, lost opportunities, lost health, etc. During this season of Lent, we will dive into stories in Luke in which Jesus explores these places of loss and sheds light on how we can be found again, discover new insights and inspirations for our lives, and help others find their way, too. Join the journey with us!
During this uncertain season, we are invited to creatively and courageously discover new ways to be the church and experience worship. In response to COVID-19 and out of concern for your health, all worship experiences are online only. While we will not gather at the building on College Avenue, we invite you to gather at home and worship with us online until further notice.
On Maundy Thursday, April 9, at noon, we invite you to online worship with communion. As part of this service, we'll lead you in a celebration of the Lord's Supper that you can participate in from your home. We invite you to bake some kind of bread to use. Here are a couple of recipes, though you can use your favorite.
Whether you bake a yeast bread, a quick bread, or just use something that you have at home, whatever you bring will give you a way to participate.
On Good Friday, April 10, we will live stream a special re-edited presentation of last years’ noon service with acclaimed tenor, Anthony McGlaun, now an ensemble member of New York’s Metropolitan Opera. On Friday evening, we invite you to tune into the live stream of our Tenebrae service at 7:00 p.m. To participate at home, you can gather eight lit candles for the beginning of the service and then extinguish one each time you see us extinguish one. You can even slam a door at the end of the service, like we do, to symbolize the closing of the tomb at the end of Good Friday.
Whether you put on your Easter best or hang out in your PJs, we hope you will join us online and invite a friend as we celebrate our risen Lord! Easter worship will be broadcast on our live streaming page at 9:00 a.m. Sunday, April 12, and will be available "on demand" thereafter.
