Holy Week Worship Schedule

Good morning everyone. Here is a reminder of the worship schedule for this week:

1. Friday evening is our Good Friday Tenebrae service. The service begins at 7pm.
2. Sunday morning there is no Sunday school. We’ll have an extended fellowship time starting at 9:30am.
3. Easter worship is at 10am!
I hope to see you later this week.

This Week (4/5)

Good afternoon all. Here are some things to keep in mind this week and in the days to come:

1. If you have signed up to participate in the Seder this Saturday, be sure and contact Jason and Sallie about what you need to bring…unless you already know. Then you can just come…you knew that…
2. Sunday morning prayer is at 8:15. Contact Lee and Laurie if you have any questions.
3. Sunday school is at 9am. The adults will hear from the Gildards, missionaries our congregation supports in France.
4. Worship is at 10am and it’s Palm Sunday! We’ll also begin a new sermon series on different themes present in our celebration of Communion.
5. Following the service we have our April potluck. Here is the link to sign up. During the potluck, be sure to chat with the Gildards. Also be sure and meet Michael and Emma. Michael is the intern who will be joining us this summer.
6. This year during Holy Week we will return to our Good Friday Tenebrae service (7pm here at the church). This is a somber and contemplative service in which we walk through the story of Jesus’ death. With each Scripture reading we extinguish a series of candles as we remember the darkness of Jesus’ suffering and death for our sin. When the service ends, we’ll leave our worship in silence as we wait on the great joy of Easter! I hope you are able to be here with us. For parents, children are always welcome and the cry room will be available. However, you might want to consider whether your children are able to participate in a service like this. It’s quiet and a bit dark so use your discretion. Either way, we love you and we love our kids.
I think that is it for now. I hope to see you this weekend.

This Week (4/1)

Although this is coming to you late this week, it is not an April Fool’s joke.

1. I made it back into town and was neither eaten by bears nor did I get (too terribly) lost in the mountains. I’m really grateful for the mini-sabbatical and for your prayers. I’m also really thankful for a fruitful trip and look forward to getting back into the saddle (so to speak..I was in Wyoming you know).
2. Tomorrow morning we have our regular Sunday school schedule beginning at 9am. The deacons will conclude their class on how we can minister in mercy to Madison. It is their hope (and mine too) that the discussion will continue after the class is done.
3. Worship is at 10am. This week our liturgy will be led by the core group from Resurrection Presbyterian church, our new sister-church plant in urban and university Madison. Matt Grimsley (the church’s planting pastor) will be preaching.
That is it for today. Next week I will send out the details for our Holy Week schedule. Don’t forget though that this year we will return to our Tenebrae service on Good Friday (7pm). More details to come.
I hope to see you in the morning!
