Holy Week

As the global Church has journeyed through this season of Lent, we find ourselves stepping into the heart of what defines the word Christian.  During the final week of Lent, we embark on what the Church has called ‘Holy Week’ where we remember, mourn and celebrate the life, death and eventual resurrection of Jesus.  In partnership with Mosaic, we invite you to join us for a few Holy Week services, starting with Maundy Thursday, continuing with a Good Friday liturgy, and followed by a Holy Saturday liturgy.  Hopefully you will be able to join us at one, if not all, of these liturgies.

Maundy Thursday – March 28
5:45-7:00 PM at Space12 (back portable – BYO finger foods)
Join us for the first night of our joint Holy Week liturgies. A snack dinner begins at 5:45pm and our liturgy will start at 6:00 sharp. We’ll dine & talk together, hear the Last Supper account, and share in the Eucharist. Weather permitting, this dinner will take place in “the backyard” behind Space12.

Good Friday – March 29
7:00-8:00 PM at Space12
We’ll continue through Holy Week together on Friday as we sit with the crucifixion accounts, some poetry & music related to them, and times of silence/reflection.

Holy Saturday – March 30
7:00-8:00 PM at Space12
We like pain or drama wrapped up quickly. So we’d prefer to move right from the death of Good Friday to the life and hope of Easter Sunday. But Holy Saturday is the church’s attempt to wait – to sit and feel the loss and darkness deeply – as the disciples would have on Saturday. This night is tough. But we believe Sunday is a fuller and deeper experience if we’ll first wait and mourn well on Saturday.
