Stations of the Cross

The 14 Stations of the Cross—artistic renderings of specific moments from the last day of Jesus’ life—hang in the Chapel. All are welcome to take a prayer guide at the chapel’s entrance and prayerfully walk the stations alone whenever the church is open. On Good Friday, Jim Dant will lead groups through the Stations (signup link in lower left sidebar). At your chosen time, please enter through the doors at the base of the church’s bell tower.
Good Friday Worship Service (Sanctuary)

Join us for a Tenebrae service. Our organist Shelton Ridge Love will present a recital of piano and organ music interspersed with scripture reflections as we remember Christ’s journey to the cross. Candles symbolize Christ, who is our Light and the Light of the World. In Tenebrae the candles are progressively extinguished. On Easter Sunday morning, the lighting of the Christ Candle will represent the resurrection of Jesus.

Easter Sunday Worship Service (Sanctuary)
April 17, 10:30am
Easter Sunday has traditionally been a Sunday of baptism in the history of the church. Our Easter celebration will follow that cherished model. We will gather in the sanctuary for an hour of music, sermon, litany and baptisms. We will hear the words often spoken over these holy waters, “You are buried with Christ and raised to walk in newness of life. Hallelujah!”
