Alleluia, He is Risen; He is Risen Indeed! This is the JOY filled cry of the Church on this day of life through Christ’s Resurrection. He is Risen. But He is not finished! He has rooms to prepare in His Father’s House. He has a return to make. And until then, He has lives to shape, guide and comfort by His Holy Spirit.
8:00 AND 10:45AM
SUNDAY, MARCH 25
The Road has been long. The Highway to Hosanna terminates at Jerusalem to the loud cries of “Hosanna, Blessed is He who Comes in the Name of the Lord.” It is a celebration! But soon, the celebration is muted, quieted as we realize that the journey does not end here. There is more to come; more for Jesus and more for us. There will be more reason to BE STILL and more reason to Rejoice!
8:00AM and 10:45 am
Firsts and Lasts. For the first and last time, Jesus washes the feet of His disciples. For the first time He celebrates Holy Communion with them and for the last time He suppers with them. For the first time, some of our youth will receive that Last Supper, that Body and Blood given and shed for the forgiveness of our sins. Our prayer for them and us is that it will be the first Last Supper of many Lord’s Suppers for them and for us.
“It is finished.” The sacrifice, the atonement for sin is finished with the death of the Son of God. “It” is finished. But is He? We enter tonight in anticipation of the terrible wonder of the cross. We will leave in the apprehension of what is yet to be completed.
7:00PM - Tenebrae
Christians around the world gather on this solemn day to remember the greatest sacrifice of love the world has ever seen. The “tenebrae” is a service of darkness, in which a series of candles are gradually extinguished symbolizing the death of Christ. In quiet reflection, we ponder the great cost by which we receive the gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation with Jesus’ final words on the cross, “Father, Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit”.
