Maundy Thursday (April 18) – drop by for individual time of prayer for the world, Bankson Hall, between 9am-1pm.  There will be a large map of the world and and various prayer stations. A pamphlet/guide will lead you through this half hour or so of prayer.
 
Good Friday (April 19) – For many, this is the most moving and powerful service of the year. It is a “Tenebrae” Worship  service, meaning darkening. The Sanctuary slowly grows darker as the Seven Last Words of Christ are read. Worship will be held in the main sanctuary, noon and 7pm. The Sanctuary Choir will sing at 7pm.
 
Easter Sunday (April 21) Worship begins at 6:30am with Outdoor Worship at the Boulder Fountain near the main sanctuary; the 8:30am and 10:00am services will have choirs, trumpets, special music, and more. (No 5pm service on Easter). The “Eggstravaganza” hunt for young children will take place at 9:40am. Join us for this celebration of hope with special music, refreshments, lilies, trumpets, and choirs.
