We welcome you to spend Holy Week and Easter as we journey with Jesus in his last days into Jerusalem, onto the Cross at Calvary, and then to the dramatic empty tomb on Easter morning.

Palm Sunday, April 9, 10:00 a.m.: Festive Palm Procession & Congregational Passion Reading. We will gather outside of Harris Academy at 10:00 a.m. for the festive procession of the Palms. Afterwards, the whole congregation shares in the drama of the Passion Gospel as we remember Jesus’ last solemn moments. We pray, celebrate and share Holy Communion together, and part in silence. (Children are most welcome and have a special part in the liturgy!)  

Maundy Thursday, April 13, 6:00-7:30 p.m.: Family-Friendly Potluck Dinner & Worship Service. We’ll provide the soup and salad. You bring a side dish, finger food, or dessert and come to enjoy a simple dinner with conversation about the word love, which was part of Jesus’ last commandment to his followers. (“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34) Afterwards, we will celebrate a simple Holy Communion and keep the ancient tradition of Maundy Thursday Foot Washing for all who wish to participate. (Children are most welcome and have a special part in the liturgy!)  

Good Friday, April 14, 12:00-12:30 p.m.: Solemn Liturgy, Brownsburg Town Hall Green.  We remember the most solemn moments of Jesus’ life as he offers himself on a Cross. This simple liturgy of Scripture readings, prayer, silence, and song is a reflective opportunity to give thanks for God’s extravagant gifts of grace and love for all people.

Easter Sunday, April 16, 10:00 a.m. at Harris Academy: A festive celebration of the empty tomb the disciples find on Easter morning. We gather for a festive procession (think parade) led by our youth and children, Holy Baptisms of Jackson and Oliver Brink, and Holy Communion in this family-friendly worship service that will last approximately one hour. Afterwards, a humongous Easter Egg Hunt follows at 11 a.m. at Door #12 of Harris Academy. Then, as the #ChurchThatServes, we’ll head out into our community with four distinct Service Projects to reach people in need and to share a bit of Easter joy. (Children are most welcome and have a special part in the liturgy!)
