All the details you need are right here.

Palm Sunday and Monday Dinner Church Services 


Sunday March 29 and Monday March 30, arrive between 6:30 and 7:00


Our regular Dinner Church service will afford us a time to remember Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem with palms and singing.  Then after supper, just as Jesus did, we’ll wash one anothers’ feet.  Be sure to wear socks to church tonight instead of tights or nylons!



Good Friday


Friday, April 3 at 7:00 pm


We’ll tell the story of Jesus’ death with singing, silence, and the walking of a labyrinth.



Easter Vigil


Saturday, April 4, at 9:00 pm


Our celebration of Easter takes place Saturday night as we gather for an Easter Vigil.  There will be fire, storytelling and feasting.  Dress warmly and comfortably (we’ll take part in a short procession around the neighborhood and some may sit on the floor during the service) and bring a spring potted flower (tulip, daffodil, or hyacinth) to decorate the space, as well as a cushion to sit on if you are able.



*Please note: there will be no Dinner Church on Sunday, April 5 or Monday, April 6.  The Easter Vigil will be our church that week!
