Ways to be The Church 

Worship with Us ~ Holy Week

This may be the most different Holy Week we have seen in decades – but it is still up to us to make it holy for us. Here is the highly anticipated Holy Week schedule:

Holy Thursday: Pastor Liz invites you to a worship recording from our church chapel. The video will be up on our web and Facebook page by late afternoon on Thursday. we will be having a comfort food love feast on, so please have a snack and drink prepared!

Good Friday: You are invited to watch a live recording of our ecumenical service (Pastor Liz and Pastor Markus will be participating).

- If you want to watch the service live at noon via zoom, please use the following link:

Good Friday Link

You may be prompted for a password: Cross (There is a 500 people participation limit!)

- Or you can watch a recording of the live service that will be available; check our church web or Facebook page for a link that will be posted later in the afternoon.

Our festive Easter service for young and old, will be up on our web and Facebook page by Saturday late afternoon. This year, more than others, we need to celebrate resurrection!

Please find some time this week, by yourself or with others, to spend time with God, pray for all affected and afflicted by the pandemic, and reach out to others through the communication means you have.
