Holy Week & Easter
There’s a reason why the church has always called the week leading up to Easter the “holy week.” This is the week when the self-giving love of God is made most visible, the week that Christ suffered and died on the cross for our sins, but then three days later was raised in new life.
It would be easy to treat this week as any another and fill it with all the usual stuff. But we want to challenge you to set aside this week for something special, to journey with Jesus during his last days and experience Holy Week in its fullness. Here are some ways we can experience this as a community:
Wednesday, 5:15 pm
Shared meal and Seder meal. Everyone is invited to share a meal and eat with our homeless friends from the neighborhood. Afterward, a couple of folks in the community will be leading us through the Jewish Passover meal, highlighting its significance in light of Christ’s sacrifice. (location: fellowship hall)
Stations at the Cross in the Neighborhood. Come by the chapel anytime between 4:30 and 7:30 pm for a contemplative and interactive experience of the Stations of the Cross that includes walking through the South Miami neighborhood. (location: chapel)
Sunday, 6 pm
Easter Celebration & dinner party. Invite your friends and family to join us for our Easter public worship at 6 pm as we celebrate the Risen King together! Then stick around for a dinner party and DJ Theophilus on the turntables. Easter Sunday is the biggest day of the year for followers of Christ – so get ready to party! (location: chapel)
