All are welcome to worship with us as we remember Christ’s passion and death leading up to the celebration of His glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday.
We continue our Lent worship series, “In View of God’s Mercy” by theology professor David Peter, as we focus our eyes of faith on the meaning behind God’s mercy made manifest in Christ.
The worship services of Holy Week and Easter provides a complete, balanced meal. Don’t just come for the dessert on Easter Sunday. You’ll miss out on the nourishment provided by the meat and potatoes of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.
