The Season of Lent

Lent 2024: An Exploration of Sin

This Lent, join us in exploring the theme of "sin" through thought-provoking worship experiences, enlightening sermons, and engaging community hour discussions. We aim to create spaces for authentic self-reflection, moving away from guilt and judgment and embracing compassion for our shared human imperfections. Let's navigate the nuances of sin together, viewing it not as a tool for condemnation but as a catalyst for profound self-discovery and collective healing. Together, we strive to deepen our connection with the divine, fostering a community that embodies grace, love, and the ever-present potential for redemption.

TWILIGHT WORSHIP: COURAGEOUS ENDURANCE
Join us at 6 p.m. every Thursday for a Twilight Worship Series on Courageous Endurance. We'll be exploring stories of folks who’ve taken creative action for justice when stuck in systems that don’t support flourishing life. We hope these brave folks can be companions to you on the journey as we walk together towards the cross.

 

Holy Week

Our Holy Week services will be both in-person and streamed online.

PALM SUNDAY | MARCH 24
9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
We mark Jesus’ triumphal entrance into Jerusalem as our shouts of Hosanna fade to the drama of the coming week. 

MAUNDY THURSDAY | MARCH 28
7:00 p.m. | Service of Tenebrae
This service of Tenebrae (Latin for Shadows) tells the story of Jesus’ last days. Led by the Willie Sordillo Ensemble, we journey from the Communion Table to the Cross as the light around us dims.

GOOD FRIDAY | MARCH 29
7:00 p.m.
Guided by Franz Liszt's Via Crucis, we journey through the stations of the cross on the most somber day of the Christian year. We gather in prayer and song to reflect on the last hours of Christ, and mourn the death that changed the world. 

EASTER SUNDAY | MARCH 31
9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. 
The triumph of the Christian story of resurrection informs a service of worship that is characterized by joyous celebration. Trumpet and organ, voice and timpani combine to bring us to the empty tomb, to peer inside, to see it is empty, to give God wild thanksgiving for the hope of everlasting life.
